WHAT: On June 5, people around the globe will celebrate World Environment Day, a day organized by the United Nations to encourage environmental awareness, education and conservation. The team at Standard Sales Company are doing their part by joining Budweiser's "Grow One. Save a Million." program, which asks adult men to not shave prior to World Environment Day, with a goal of together saving one million gallons of water. Each shave uses about five gallons of water*, so by putting down our razors, each of us can save roughly 35 gallons of water per week. Water conservation is a critical issue on the South Plains and our participation hopes to raise continued awareness to this important issue.
WHEN: Our participation in Budweiser's "Grow One. Save a Million." campaign runs from May 23, 2012 -June 5, 2012
TO REGISTER: Adults can visit Budweiser's Facebook page to learn more about the program and take the pledge to "Grow One." The page also contains a running tabulation of the amount of water saved through this effort.
BACKGROUND: Anheuser-Busch, brewer of Budweiser, is committed to conserving water in its facilities and protecting waterways in the community.
Standard Sales Company's new warehouse was built with sustainability in mind. Environmentally friendly materials, energy efficient lighting, water wise plant life and the latest technology for warehouse cooling were utilized. We would love to host your team at our new warehouse for a tour and the opportunity to raise community awareness on the issue of water conservation.
*The average shave uses 3-10 gallons of water.
