Club Green Hopes To Win Green

Last year, Staples’ Club Green won $5,000 in CL&P’s “Live Green Win Green” contest.  The money helped fund EcoFest, and paid for recycling bins for the school and athletic fields.

This year, club members helped bring in a double-sided printer for the library.   It saves 350 reams of paper a year — that’s $1,000, for those who care more about money than trees.

Club Green also hopes to make EcoFest — the yearly environmental/music festival — better than ever.

They’d also like to win that $5,000 again.  Or $20,000.

“06880” readers can help.  Public voting begins tomorrow (Wed., March 9) — just click here.  (You can vote multiple times each day.  Hey, it works for Chicago.)

After voters winnow the field, judges pick the final winners.  The grand prize is 20 grand.

    Thanks for the plug, this is great! One tiny note: the printer in the library installed this year was brought in by the district from storage essentially. It was already bought and wasn’t even being used, so we’re truly saving money!

    Voting should last two weeks, so hopefully we keep up good progress!

    Thanks for guiding the voters, Dan. The site was down around 11 this morning when those commenters were having trouble, so that could have been part of the problem
    Go Staples!
