GGPR: Do you see important connections with the role you play in our community and our future on this planet?
Laura: Yes! Compass has purchased a Cupanion bottle with a Fill It Forward bar code and a green T-Shirt for our clients to show our support for going green. Each time our students fill up the water bottle the student scans the barcode on top of the bottle and then gets feedback on what water project is currently in progress.
We believe the less paper and plastic cup waste we produce will help lower our environmental footprint on the earth. The Cupanion,Fill It Forward, partnership allows our students to make a difference in the lives of individuals that do not have access to clean water and it also lets our students see how much they are saving in carbon emissions.
Recently, we have also begun recycling paper by putting bins around the office. Each week we empty the bins and take the recyclables home. This way we are saving paper from contamination and increasing its recyclability.
