Viridian Energy Sponsors Community Beach-Clean Up in Westport for Earth Day
April 20, 2010. STAMFORD, CT– Viridian Energy, an environmentally focused retail electricity provider, will be hosting a corporate beach clean-up day at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, CT this Friday April 23, 2010. Viridian has partnered with Save the Sound, a program of the Connecticut Fund for the Environment, to organize the event, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
Viridian will be closing its corporate offices during the event to allow all of its employees and independent sales associates to assist in the beach clean up. The company welcomes the local community to come help in the clean-up effort: general attendance costs $20, which covers cleaning materials, lunch and an event T-shirt. Participants should arrive at Sherwood Island State Park by 10am on Friday. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Viridian Energy is headquartered in Stamford and services commercial and residential electricity customers in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, with plans to launch electricity service in New Jersey and Maryland in the upcoming weeks. In all of its markets, Viridian offers consumers discounted electricity rates that comply with a higher renewable energy content standard. The company’s strong belief in smaller scale, achievable environmental goals led to their decision to host a day of service in honor of Earth Day. Viridian considers community service and sustainability projects integral to its mission and values.
“While Earth Day has an inherently global message and purpose, we are thrilled to be actively helping out on a local level,” said Viridian CEO Michael Fallquist. “I am so proud of our dedicated group of customers and associates who are willing to give their time for this and other sustainability projects. And, as a resident of Westport, I am looking forward to seeing the results.”
