Our Go Green ERG Works Hard This Fall

POSTED UNDER Go Green Employee Resource Groups

The Go Green Employee Resource Group (ERG), located at the Cincinnati Central Offices, has made it a priority to educate, expose and enlighten Macy’s associates about sustainability. Over the past three years, the ERG, under the leadership of Executive VP Amy Hanson and co-chairs Megan Golden and Melissa Olberding, have approached sustainability in a variety of ways. This fall, Go Green ERG is gearing up for the changing seasons – preparing for falling leaves AND falling temperatures.

On September 17th we had several events happening simultaneously for our associates:

  • We hosted our 3rd Annual Farmer's Market. Macy’s Corporate main lobby was filled with produce, jams and jellies, hummus and honey during lunch time.
  • We held a field trip to Rumpke Recycling Center so associates could learn more about how Cincinnati’s largest recycling center operates.

But that’s just the beginning – even more events are scheduled as fall and winter really kick in.

  • Teaming with Partners in Time, Go Green will help gather and distribute warm clothing for the partner school – Porter Elementary. Winter weather items like coats, gloves, hats, scarves and boots are the top priority items to donate and distribute. Interview clothes for men and women in need will be issued as well. 
  • You can be a part of the region's Taking Root campaign: we'll be planting trees on October 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Sharon Woods in Cincinnati. It's a reforestation initiative made possible by a generous grant from REI.
  • In November, Go Green ERG will be planting tulip bulbs at the Cincinnati Zoo along with Go Green members from Kemper, MCCS-Mason and West Chester. The thousands of tulips planted each year means springtime is very special at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens. Our efforts turn into Tulip Mania in April.
  • It’s never too early to think about Christmas … right? December and January means you can bring in your Christmas tree lights that no longer work. Go Green will make sure they are recycled properly.

All Cincinnati Central Office associates are invited to join the ERG, which meets the second Friday each month on the 13th floor at 10 a.m. But many of these events are open to the public as well. Even if you aren’t a Macy’s associate, donate your time and resources. Who knows, you may have fun on a nice fall day while doing it.
