a 30 day earth day challenge

At Rhone, we pride ourselves on being responsibleto our customers, to our communities, and to our environment. We continually seek ways to do "our part," and team members contribute in their own ways. For example, our design team is updating and developing future products with recycled and sustainable materials as well as evaluating every step of our supply chain to make it as eco friendly as possible. Others are researching and working with local organizations to pay it forward. And others are educating coworkers on how to recycle properly. Every effort counts, and there is no doubt we'll get further by working together. 

During these complicated times, you may find "going green" or working on your "sustainable lifestyle" lower on your priority list than a couple of months ago. We are here to change your mindset and remind you that now, amidst all of this change, is, in fact, the best time to create new responsible habits. We've put together a list of 30 things to get you started. Try following day by day or pick one thing at random each day that fits with life right now. Remember, we'll get further by working together. Let's get started.

Day 2: Stop Using Disposable Bags (and start using reusable.)

Day 3: Recycle (Hopefully most of you already are, but if not, there's no time like the present

Day 4: EARTH DAY (Get outside. Plant some flowers. Clean the beach. Be grateful.)

Day 5: Host A Virtual Eco-Craft Day (Try one of these.)

Day 6: Meatless Monday (Try going vegetarian for a day.)

Day 7: Turn Off Sink When You Brush Your Teeth (This simple step can save up to three gallons each day.)
