Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 each year. As the name of the day suggests, it demonstrates support for environmental protection with more than 1 billion people in 192 countries taking part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world.
At Graham, we are committed to creating a better tomorrow hence Earth Day is great reminder for all of us to minimize our impact on the environment. In spirit of this celebration of nature, the team was encouraged to carry out several 'green' initiatives!
Packs of seeds were distributed to all our employees across the globe in honor of this important worldwide effort, and our Brazilian team also distributed recycled textile bags to all the local employees offering nice-looking reusable bags which can be used repeatedly instead of single use of plastic bags!
Some of the engaged employees were involved in projects to plant trees around Graham buildings and a #trashtag challenge was created during which our teams cleaned some of the areas in Poços de Caldas in Brazil.
Additionally, in honor of Earth Day, employees were strongly encouraged to minimize their impact on the environment during their daily commute to work by carpooling or through more environmentally friendly transport methods, such as bicycles.
Through their actions, Graham employees around the globe are actively involved as agents of change, working for a better tomorrow.
