Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) is an environmentally and socially conscious brewer of award-winning, all natural beer. The care that goes into our beer resonates from a commitment to the community and environment, otherwise known as our "Triple Bottom Line" - to engage in economic, social and environmental practices that achieve a sustainable, yet profitable, business.
At GLBC, we believe the Triple Bottom Line is going to become increasingly important as people focus more on responsible purchasing. Our commitment to sustainability is present in almost every aspect of our business including:
-Reducing, reusing and recycling
-Changing natural resource use from "Take, Make, Waste" to "Take, Make, Remake"
-Implementing efficient energy practices
-Investing in the community through non-profit organizations (Mark your calendars for Burning River Fest: July 23-24, 2011)
-Supporting sustainable urban renewal projects
Tomorrow is one of GLBC’s favorite holidays, EARTH DAY, and we will be celebrating! Catch GLBC and Fox 8 Cleveland’s Kenny Crumpton first thing tomorrow morning as we “GO GREEN” and highlight all of our sustainability projects.
To commemorate this day, we challenge you to partake in at least five (5) eco-friendly activities. Not sure what you can do?? Here are a few suggestions:
1. Avoid driving in your car. Walk, ride your bike or take the bus.
2. Go meatless. Indulge in fruits, veggies and whole grain foods.
3. Forget the trash bin. Recycle everything you can.
4. Need to make a trip to the grocery store for Easter weekend? Bring reusable bags to carry your groceries.
5. Replace all of your current light bulbs with LED or compact fluorescent light bulbs. They are more expensive, but you will save a bundle down the road with these energy efficient light bulbs.
Tell us how you will be celebrating Earth Day and share with us ways you are going green – help us make the Earth a better place (and drink better beer along the way)!
