JH2O water station used at company picnic
In a bid to live out our Sustainability values at Silver Star’s annual company picnic, team members were encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle. Everyone who did was entered into a raffle for prizes. Lemonade, punch and homemade root beer were served from igloo coolers and we were able to use one of the JH2O Project‘s water stations for hydration as well.
A big thank you to Teton County Parks and Recreation for setting up and taking down the water station at Owen Bircher Park. Mac Dukart at Teton County Integrated Waste and Recycling was awesome to work with – he coordinated with the JH2O Project for us to use the station.
With over 200 people in attendance, we prevented the use of at least that many single-use plastic bottles or aluminum cans and had fun with the raffle. One of the great things about the water station is that it serves not just as a source of water but is an educational piece about the costs associated with bottled water – especially when those bottles end up in the landfill.
