Subheadline

DANBURY, Conn., (April 25, 2012) — For the ninth consecutive year, Cartus Corporation employees celebrated Earth Day at the company’s headquarters in Danbury on April 25.  The Cartus Earth Day Fair, held at the company’s Conference Center, included 22 vendors offering a wide variety of samples and suggestions designed to help employees learn about innovative green solutions to help solve environmental dilemmas.  

Among the exhibitors were Staples office supplies and Executive Landscaping, which provided hundreds of potted seedlings to employees, giving them a head start on their herb gardens.  Perennial favorites such as Goatboy Soaps of New Milford, Conn., maker of all-natural beauty and bath products, and The Farmer’s Cow, of Lebanon, Conn., maker of all-natural dairy foods, also participated.

Among the highlights at this year’s event were: Bruce Bennett Nissan representatives Kelly Martin and Liam Austin-McClellan, who drove from Wilton in the all-electric Leaf vehicle to the Cartus parking lot, where they demonstrated the car’s attributes and energy-saving capabilities; Shred-It, which placed secure bins throughout Cartus headquarters  so employees could dispose of outdated  bank and tax records; and The Better Way of Living of Thomaston, Conn., purveyor of “green” products from across the country. 

“I love coming to Cartus!” said Lisa Agee, owner of Goatboy Soaps. “This event gets bigger and better every year!” 

“Green initiatives are an important part of our being a global leader and good corporate citizen,” said Kevin Kelleher, president of Cartus. “Environmental stewardship is important to our clients, and judging from the overwhelming turnout at our Earth Day Fair, it’s equally important to our employees.” 

Recognized for its dedication to environmental issues, Cartus has won many awards for its efforts to promote ridesharing, for reducing the carbon footprint of its office buildings, and for longtime participation in the Danbury Adopt-A-Street program.
