Our team members have been prepping all week for the company picnic that will be held at our corporate manufacturing facility tomorrow. The employee steering committee has made every attempt to adhere to our “live and work green” core value while planning the event. Utensils were purchased that are dishwasher safe and were manufactured from recycled content, for guest to use while dining. These utensils will be reused by Solar Innovations, Inc. until they break, at which time they will be recycled again. A new picnic area has been created on the facility’s grounds that provides natural sharing through tree cover. Because Solar Innovations, Inc.’s facility is LEED Gold certified, the majority of purchases made for the picnic were done in accordance with LEED guidelines; these purchases and the new picnic area will both contribute to Solar’s quest to earn additional LEED Points.
Photographs of this weekend’s Picnic will be posted on Solar Innovations, Inc.’s facebook page next week!
