ProShow Event Staffers Rock their “Green” Practices

April 1, 2013

The global theme for Earth Day 2013 is “The Face of Climate Change” celebrated around the globe on April 22.  Beginning in the United States in 1970, the day was originally meant to be an education focus, hence a school day was chosen for the launch, ensuring a captive audience.  Additionally, on the first Earth Day celebration in New York City’s Central Park, over 1,000,000 people joined the call for awareness!

Earth Day is now celebrated in over 100 countries, and has evolved well beyond basic awareness to a mission that inspires us to take action to enhance our planet and our lives.

This month we are celebrating the achievements of our event staffers who have excelled in sharing how they “live” sustainable practices.  Following is the winning entry in our Sustainability Contest at McDonald’s CMOR conference:

                “I use cereal boxes to wrap gifts, and as I get white t-shirts on various shows I tie dye or paint them, using for casual wear.  They’re fun to wear and a great way to re-use clothing.” Evelyn Wallin, Las Vegas, March, 2013.

In this month, and every month ongoing, we encourage each of us to take simple, even small steps, to enrich our planet and our lives.
