Earth Day is Everyday – The Think Green Campaign begins!
Kentwood Real Estate is going “Green!” The leading real estate firm has announced the creation and implementation of an unprecedented “Think Green Campaign” that clearly illustrates the company’s dedication to the environment and the future health of planet earth. The co-owners, management team and leading broker associates at three Kentwood offices in the Denver area have committed to a Think Green Campaign that will reduce pollution in rivers and lakes, preserve our forests, and reduce pollution in the world’s oceans. The campaign coincides with Earth Day on April 22nd.
“The Kentwood Companies’ Think Green Campaign was designed to encourage people to make a difference in the environment and to conserve our natural resources,” said Carol Ihli, vice president and co-managing broker of the Cherry Creek office. “It’s important that our company makes decisions and establishes office policies that reflect our concern for the environment by reducing the carbon footprint.
“We have started a recycling program for each Kentwood office by making recycling bins available to our agents and support staff,” Ihli continued. “We have switched our printing to a certified ‘green’ printer so all of our brochures, flyers and other marketing materials are produced on recycled paper. The printing material and practices have passed the highest environment standards. We are making an effort to direct people to our website for more information rather than taking printed materials. The Kentwood Companies have also placed an order for 20,000 reusable shopping bags that will be distributed to our clients in May as a major part of the Kentwood Think Green Campaign. So now, when our clients carry a reusable bag and are asked at the grocery store if they prefer paper or plastic, they can say ‘neither!’ These bags have a minimum shelf life of three to four years.”
The Think Green Campaign promotes environmental awareness while establishing corporate responsibility. The centerpiece of the promotion is a reusable grocery bag imprinted with The Kentwood Companies logo. Participating Kentwood agents will give their clients four bags and a shopping list note pad supported by two “Earth Day” postcards available electronically or on recycled paper. A newsletter, also available electronically or on recycled paper, will provide “Green” tips, resources, and coupons. Four bags are the equivalent of a full grocery cart.
The Kentwood Think Green Campaign’s reusable bags hold more and spill less. They are sturdy, easier to carry, and last for years. And one reusable bag will replace 500 plastic bags.
The broker associates at The Kentwood Companies want every day to be Earth Day. Gretchen Rosenberg, the co-Managing Broker at Kentwood’s Cherry Creek office invites you to contact her if you’re in the Denver area and would like a reusable shopping bag. Honor the earth, make your green resolutions for the next year today!
