As it has the past 2 years, the BLR Green Team celebrated Earth Day with a brown bag lunch for all employees on Tuesday, April 24. Team members brought in goodies to share, and set up coolers with lemonade, water, and iced tea with fresh lemon. Employees were invited to stop by for a treat, or sit down and enjoy their lunch next to the windows on a beautiful sunny day. (Unfortunately, although the day was bright, without a cloud in the sky, it was a little too chilly to have the event outside as in years past.) Keeping with the Earth Day theme, employees were encouraged to bring their lunches in reusable containers and bring their own cups to partake in team-provided beverages.
In addition to the brown bag lunch event, the Green Team also established an Earth Day Photo Project on the company intranet, which invited employees to share photos of their “view of the state of our environment” on Earth Day. Employees were encouraged to upload and share their best Earth Day photos and add comments to others’ photos. The photo project was modeled after EPA's "Environment in a Day" photo project, which is accepting submissions until Saturday, April 28.
