GreenForward encourages Weingarten Realty associates to participate in events that help ensure the preservation and protection of the environment for future generations. Recently, Weingarten held the first Shredding Day Event for the Houston associates. Associates were invited to bring their personal and confidential documents to shred free of charge. Additionally, participants were encouraged to witness the shredding of their documents in the Vanish Document Shredding mobile truck. Vanish Document Shredding reported that an astonishing 630 lbs. of paper was recycled by Weingarten Realty associates!
During the week leading up to the event, associates were encouraged to watch a video showing the process and importance of paper recycling. The video demonstrated the process of turning wood chips and recycled paper into pulp for making paper. After watching the video and answering a review question, each Associate was given a GreenForward reusable tote bag.
As an added bonus, GreenForward joined forces with the Employee Wellness Program by offering the opportunity to earn up to 30 wellness points for participation in the recycling event and watching the informative video.
The Green Team strives to engage associates and retailers throughout the year by highlighting sustainable initiatives and practices. It is the Green Team’s goal to hold many more GreenForward events in the Houston and Regional offices. We appreciate your partnership as we push for a greener and brighter future.
