Berry Network was recently honored by its parent company, AT&T, with a “Champions of the Environment” award for its employee-driven recycling program. The award recognizes programs and projects that make a positive environmental impact in the workplace or local community.
Berry Network’s recycling program launched earlier this year to coincide with Earth Day. The program encourages employees to recycle aluminum cans, plastic bottles, paper, and many other items including: eyeglasses, electronics, batteries, cell phones and plastic grocery bags. Eleven employee-volunteers support Berry Network’s initiative and maintain responsibility for collecting and delivering all the recyclables. The AT&T award includes a $1,000 contribution in Berry Network’s name to a local, not-for-profit, environmentally friendly organization.
Christa Fore, who initiated the recycling program for Berry Network, selected Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm to receive the $1,000 gift. According to Ardith Hamilton, Aullwood’s Marketing and Development Coordinator, “Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm is delighted to be a Champions of the Environment Award recipient! We’d like to thank Berry Network for recognizing us!”
