ATLANTA, April 22, 2008 – To celebrate Earth Day, Pinnacle Promotions hosted a “Bring-Your-Own Bowl and Spoon” Ice Cream Social for all Pinnacle employees. With this theme, the Green Committee hopes to encourage a move away from disposable plates and utensils to a more EarthSmart™ way of living.
Employees were also motivated to do something different for Earth Day including bringing a lunch, riding a bike to work, using alternate forms of transportation and walking to lunch. During the social, employees were encouraged to join a company-wide pledge to live a more EarthSmart™ way of life. With hopes of 100 percent employee participation, Rob Wellon, EarthSmart™ Brand Manager, is confident that this voluntary pledge will be successful.
“With the EarthSmart™ Pledge, we want to get a renewed commitment to eco-friendly living from all Pinnacle employees,” said Wellon, “as well as give some simple tips on how employees can ‘green’ their lifestyles.”
With several eco-friendly initiatives already underway at Pinnacle, The Green Committee has provided employees easy ways to make a difference. From asking employees to turn off computer monitors at night, implementing a large-scale office recycling program to encouraging employee car-pooling, The Green Committee’s programs have all been successful to date.
In addition to the “Bring-Your-Own Bowl and Spoon” Ice Cream Social, Pinnacle Promotions’ Green Committee planned and sponsored several events throughout March and April. These events included distributing reusable bags to all employees, planning, sponsoring and participating in Earth Hour on March 29, 2008 and participating in Earth Share of Georgia’s Corporate Green Day Challenge on April 26, 2008.
EarthSmart™ is Pinnacle Promotions’ line of eco-friendly promotional items. EarthSmart™ promotional items are made from environmentally friendly or recycled materials, and come from suppliers committed to "green" manufacturing and printing methods. All Pinnacle Promotions’ EarthSmart™ items are strictly evaluated and must be recycled, reusable or natural to be considered for inclusion in this category.
