It’s Good to be Green

23 September 2009

A new tradition commenced yesterday at Hill & Knowlton across the globe.  It was our first ever, Green Day!… and let me tell you… the BC office really enjoyed the experience, in fact, it was both fun and delicious!

The BC office started the day by taking part in a ‘Green commute Challenge’ where all colleagues were encouraged to leave their car keys behind adn either bike, walk , bus, or in some cases, carpool to work!  With the weather being as fabulous as it has been, the walkers/runners and bikers had nothing but smiles and energy to start off their day, the carpoolers came in with giggles and a good morning chat under their belt, and the bussers were ahead of the game, having had the chance to read the paper on their way in.  All in all, it was a huge success, and possibly the beginning of a few changes to morning routines.

In celebration of our fabulous morning efforts, the team celebrated by enjoying a ‘100 Mile Potluck’ lunch together.  The focus of the 100 Mile lunch was to buy local food, within 100 miles of Vancouver – thus making small choices that make a big environmental impact.  We had Pemberton potato salad with BC Farm fresh eggs, local spicy pork, candied BC Salmon with local Vancouver figs, Vancouver beet salad wtih BC goat cheese, BC roasted chicken and veggies, and a garden salad to boot! 

As a result of today, we have collectively decided that it will need to be a regular routine and next month’s menu is already in the works!
