Earth Day — And Everyday — We're More Green!

By on April 19, 2012

Move over St. Patrick’s Day! April is the month to celebrate all things green.

There are now nearly 6,700 Verizon Green Team members in 20 countries and the company’s goal is to reach 10,000 members this year.

Earth Day 2012 is right around the corner with more than 20 volunteer events planned involving hundreds of employees.

Verizon Wireless has a growing number of stores and network facilities that have earned LEED® and Energy Star certifications for environmental design and efficiency. The company’s 100th Energy Star store was recently certified in Santa Maria, California.

Also, recycling rallies sponsored by the Verizon Sustainability Team took place in Colorado Springs, Phoenix and Salt Lake City that kept several tons of computers, TVs, small appliances and other electronic waste out of local landfills. All of the collected electronic items were recycled or disposed in an environmentally-friendly way.

This Earth Day – and all year long – think green! To learn more about our corporate sustainability initiatives, visit http://www.verizon.com/sustainability
