October 05, 2014

Things you didn't know were eco friendly

With a reinvigorated generation of environmentally conscious citizens, more consumers want to purchase products and brands that are sustainable, use green business practices and and are recyclable. Customers may not realize that Okabashi shoes are made in the United States, 100 percent recyclable, vegan-friendly and contain 25 percent recycled material. See, it IS easy being green!

Here are some other hot products and brands with eco-agendas!

Crayola Markers

Crayola started its ColorCycle program to inspire teachers and children to focus on the importance of protecting the environment.  The program encourages schools to collect used markers and send them back to Crayola, free-of-charge. The markers are converted into clean-burning fuel, and 308 markers can create enough fuel for an SUV to drive 15 miles!

Honest Tea Drinks

According to research by Honest Tea and TerraCycle, up to one million drink pouches are deposited into landfills each year. These companies teamed up to create the Honest Kids Drink Pouch Collection program to collect used drink dispensers and create a variety of products out of the recycled material. Anyone can send in their recycling, and regular donors can earn charitable gifts and cash donations to the charity of their choice!

Coca-Cola Products

This soft-drink enterprise has been working since 2011 to cut down on packaging and waste, decreasing their space in landfills and using more recycled materials. So next time you pop the tab on your Coke can, you can feel good knowing that it has decreased its landfill waste and pollution.

Google

You may be thinking, “How can a search engine be green?” Since 2007, Google has worked toward reducing its carbon footprint, and its data center uses 50 percent less energy than other leading data centers. In addition, Google has invested more than $1 billion in renewable energy products and other energy-efficient improvements.
