Join Us in Saving Paper!

May 28, 2024

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we would like to encourage everyone to join us in our efforts to reduce paper usage within CG.

Since January 1st, 2024, Christensen Group has physically printed 148,006 pages across all printers and offices. There are numerous alternatives to printing unnecessarily, which not only helps to reduce wear and tear on our printers, but also to preserve our environment and contribute to cost savings for us as employee owners.

Here are a few simple ways we can all contribute to saving paper:

  • Think Before Printing: Before hitting the print button, consider whether the document truly needs to be in hard copy format. If it's possible to review or share the information digitally, opt for that instead.

  • Double-Sided Printing: When printing is absolutely necessary, utilize the double-sided printing feature to maximize paper usage and reduce waste.

  • Digital Signatures: Utilize Foxit for signing documents whenever feasible, eliminating the need for printing, signing, and scanning.

  • Share Documents Electronically: Instead of distributing physical copies of documents during meetings or presentations, share them electronically through email or cloud-based platforms like OneDrive or SharePoint.

By collectively adopting these practices, we can make a significant impact on reducing our environmental footprint.

Tree Planting at the Dodge Nature Center

May 15, 2024

The CG Green Committee put together a tree planting event at the Dodge Nature Center to celebrate Earth Day. Embracing the outdoors, disconnecting from screens, and lending a hand to the environment always garners great enthusiasm and drew a large crowd. We were also fortunate to witness newborn animals on the farm during our visit.

Mark your calendars for the Rock the Barn event at the Dodge Center on May 18 to support the Preschool Scholarship Fund. Visit their website for further details or to download a walking map for an escape from the daily grind.
