Grainger Hosting Green Events For Earth Day
April 20, 2009
Grainger, Lake Forest, IL, a distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, will host green educational events to honor Earth Day in 25 markets across the country focused on helping businesses and institutions garner the knowledge and tools needed to maintain and operate more sustainable and energy-efficient facilities. The educational events are in conjunction with the launch of an online green product catalog that provides customers easy access to more than 3,300 environmentally responsible products.
"Businesses are looking to navigate the many definitions of "green" to ultimately find ways to maintain and operate their facilities more efficiently and cost-effectively, without taxing our environmental resources," said Deb Oler, vice president. "Our "green" catalog, coupled with the free educational Earth Day events, are designed to provide businesses with a roadmap toward a more sustainable future."
The online catalog features items certified by Green Seal, EcoLogo, NEMA Premium and ENERGY STAR as well as products that have environmentally preferable attributes and can be used to earn credits toward LEED certification. The Earth Day events will include representatives from Grainger's supplier base who will discuss green product information and solutions as well as offer needs assessments and audits in areas such as energy, water, green cleaning and waste reduction.
