Green Baggin' It

While they are a great way to feed a crowd, box lunches create a lot of waste. And that is exactly what we didn't want to repeat at the annual Georgia Adopt-a-Stream conference. Images of trash cans overflowing with recycables were seared into our memories. So the Green Team, which included me, set out to figure out way to make our lunch for 250 people as impact-free as we could...and we started by eleminating the box. Jason's Deli, our lunch caterer, was more than willing to help us with this goal. Thanks y'all. In fact our green-mission was in line with Jason's Deli core value of "Growing a Healthier Company," so we helped them advance their sustainability goals as well. I love it when a plan comes together.
