Celebrating Earth Day at Rogers

For Rogers, green is more than just the color of our logo; it’s a way of life.  That is why we invited all Rogers Corporation employees to participate in the second annual Share Your Acts of Rogers Green campaign for all of #EarthMonth.

By encouraging colleagues to share images of how they help and enjoy the Earth, we increase conversation and awareness on the importance of protecting and appreciating nature, every day. So far, employees have shared many images, including some of water management efforts, protected species and everyday acts of being green.

It’s Not Easy Being Green, But It is Worth It!

As a company, we are proud of our commitment to sustainability, which drives us to meet and exceed standards in the communities where we work.

For example, our air oxidizers are capable of cleaning up to 99.5% of contaminants in the air from our manufacturing processes before it is released into the atmosphere. Another example is the sorting areas at each of our manufacturing facilities. If scrap cannot be repurposed or reused, our teams can easily sort it for recycling. Our Roosevelt, AZ location recycled nearly 700,000 pounds of metal material in 2017.

Although celebrations specifically for #EarthDay2019 are exciting, the spirit of being green will live on at Rogers long after April 22.  Thank you to all of our employees for celebrating by sharing photos and diligently protecting Mother Nature, at work and at home.

Earth Day This year’s Earth Day theme was “A Billion Acts of Green®,” and that is exactly how we kicked off the celebration in local communities.

On April 21, members of our Rogers Corporation team joined together for a clean-up of our local streets at the Rogers and Woodstock, Connecticut locations.  This year was extra special as Easter was just around the corner, and participants found Easter eggs along the way with great prizes hidden inside.

Earth Day may come just once a year, but it should be celebrated every day!  The Earth Day Network reminds us that “real change occurs best when millions of people commit to it with their actions.”  Every effort to help the environment, no matter how small, is important.

Here are some tips we learned from our Earth Day celebration to make any clean up event “greener” and more fun:

  • Participants picking up trash received reusable shopping bags, a great reminder to keep a few in your car for shopping trips.
  • Rather than driving to a location for Earth Day, participants cleaned up their local streets and parks.
  • We had a great time searching for Easter eggs along the way!  Having fun going green with rewards and challenges encourages sustainable change.

To date, A Billion Acts of Green has reported over 45 million acts, both great and small.  Our team is working to take these acts to one billion and beyond!

Do you have ideas for next years’ celebration? Share them with your team and your local community!
