Thanksgiving is the time to pause to consider what we’re thankful for. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’ve been looking for a way to give back for the blessings we all share. I also wanted Green & Green to be part of the solution in dealing with the consequences of global warming. That’s why we’re delighted that we’ve found a way to give back and help the environment.

We have a commitment to supplying donations to a variety of charities for door prizes and auctions.
We have partnered with Tradeworks Custom Products, a social venture helping women in the Downtown Eastside.
Hat Trick at Green & Green
When I heard about a new company called Hat trick at a business networking meeting, I knew I’d found the perfect way to show we care.
Hat trick means three goals by one player in a hockey game. We’re doing a hat trick with our new Green & Green corporate giving project. Here’s how we’ll score our three goals.
First goal: We’ve selected a high impact project for the developing world, Sleeping Children Around the World. SCAW provides a child in one of 32 countries with a bed kit: a mattress, sheets, a blanket, a pillow, mosquito netting, clothes, a towel and school supplies
Second goal: We’re paying for “our bedroom in a box” entirely through environmental savings at Green & Green.
Third goal: We’re telling others about our hat trick to spread the word that there is something we can do about the important issues in the world.
To achieve these goals we ask for our customer’s support. If you agree to receive our invoices by email instead of by regular mail, we’ll put every dime we save on postage and processing toward our hat trick.
Every quarter of the year, we commit to funding a new hat trick by searching for new ways to make Green & Green more environmentally efficient.
For our first hat trick, we need your help. If you agree to receive our invoices by email instead of by snail mail, we’ll put every dime we save on postage and processing toward our hat trick.
