It’s been 52 years since we celebrated the first Earth Day in 1970. This annual event was created so the global community could support the common cause of protecting our planet Earth — and to address the impact of industry on the environment. The event’s popularity has grown around the world, and this year, more than a billion people in 193 countries will participate on April 22.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
Going green can mean something different to everyone, and everyone can still be correct. You can choose to reduce your use of limited resources like water. You can reuse products that you would normally discard, like drinking from the same coffee mug each day. And you can recycle by making more biodegradable, eco-friendly choices.
Go Green in Every Environment
Both employees and employers can implement green measures at home and in the workplace. Every conscious effort to more mindfully reduce water usage, mitigate trash build-up and conserve energy makes a difference as we work together to protect our planet.

Providing Cold Beverage Choices That Eliminate Single-Serve Plastics
Employers can provide employees with options that are earth-friendly. For instance, BostonbeaN offers the touchless ION Bottleless Water Cooler system that eliminates the need for plastic water bottles. The Bevi is a more robust option for employers who want to offer employees a greater breadth of flavored cold-beverage choices.
Some Like It Hot (or Cold)
Employers and employees can even reduce waste for coffee and tea drinkers with The Fresh Cup, which freshly roasts coffee and brews tea in biodegradable pods.
