Insurance firm launches recycling program
Published: September 14,2009
Jackson – Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Company has created the Green for Life Recycling Program in an effort to exemplify a community conscious entity through monetary donations, volunteer work and education.
“Up to 70 percent of the trash from an office like ours is paper that can be recycled. Recycling not only offers a money-saving alternative to waste disposal, but also conserves energy and natural resources, and reduces our company’s carbon footprint,” said Billy Sims, vice president, human resources.
Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Company will kick off the Green for Life Recycling Program Sept. 3 with a Green for Life Event. At the event, employees will be able to find out how they can recycle at home and how to make their homes greener.
Along with the event, employees will be able to start recycling their office paper at their desk, as well as being able to take aluminum cans and plastic bottles to designated areas to be recycled. Members of the “Green Team” began training the home office employees on their new recycling procedures Sept. 1-2.
