Corporate Express US Inc. (part of Netherlands-based Corporate Express NV) recently announced the launch of its Ecoffice(R) Makeover Contest. This contest, open to all U.S. businesses, will award one winning company with a $5,000 shopping spree on the company's online Ecoffice Source catalog.
"Here at Corporate Express, we see sustainability as a partnership with our customers, and we take many steps with them to help reduce environmental impact, such as offering free toner and inkjet recycling, annual catalog recycling and eco-preferable shopping online," said Jay Mutschler, president of Corporate Express US. "Now, we're launching this contest to invite businesses across the U.S. to tell their sustainability story as a fun and creative way to encourage sustainability in the workplace."
Entrants must submit an electronic presentation of up to twenty slides in length on why their organization deserves an "Ecoffice Makeover" -- regardless of whether they have just started to work on sustainability or if they have already taken significant steps in this area.
"Purchasing eco-preferable products is just one of the many steps that businesses can take toward greater workplace sustainability," said Walter Scott, vice president of marketing and e-commerce, Corporate Express US. "Through this contest, we want to help raise awareness with businesses about the breadth of eco-conscious products that are available for the office."
The contest started on Monday, June 30, 2008 and will close at 11:59 PM Mountain time, on Sunday, August 31, 2008.
