This past weekend, Charlie Coordinator and friends from the Boys & Girls Club of Pueblo volunteered, with permission from the Parks & Rec Coordinator, to clean up Pueblo City Parks! They started out with Mineral Palace Park, where volunteers picked up trash and sorted waste into recycling bins. After a stop at the City Park, volunteers were treated to lunch by Little Caesar’s and stopped to play a game of ball at the local court!

We are thrilled to have embarked on this project with you guys! Great job, Boys & Girls Club! We look forward to many future collaborations with you!

As an ex-tutor of the Boys & Girls Club, I’m glad to see them getting involved with helping out Pueblo!

Ah! We’re thrilled to get such great feedback! Our volunteers from the club were great - they all worked very hard and were enthusiastic to help the community! We can only hope we’ll be lucky enough to work with them again!

School cleanup!

This past weekend, Charlie Coordinator and Austin Vice-Presidente visited Liberty Point Elementary to assist local teachers with their implementation of the new garden. Previously, Austin met with teachers and discussed the benefits of a garden, which include:

  • The opportunity for students to learn about biology and botany hands-on!
  • A source of healthy snacks for students.
  • The opportunity for students to understand the importance of environmental responsibility

After working with teachers to compose a grant (which was given! Yay!), Austin and Charlie worked with teachers and students to plant set up the garden. With donated materials from local businesses, the entire area by the modulars is planted with seeds that students will nurture to completion! Great job Liberty Point! Can’t wait to work with you again in the future!

jakers75 asked: I read in your mission statement that you plan to clean up the pollution in Pueblo - how do you think this will effect the economy?

A great question! We believe that our actions will only have a positive effect on the local economy!

  • First, we plan to draw from the pool of talent around Pueblo. University students, community experts, local greenies - we’re looking for anyone that can help us in our endeavors, and some opportunities for paid positions will be had.
  • By making Pueblo an environmentally-cleaner place to be, we will help this town grow to its fullest potential by making it a more attractive place to visit and to live in!
  • We will make the steel-mill area and its surroundings clean, which will free room for more businesses and residential areas to expand into!

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!

"Tomato vines are suspended above conference tables, lemon and passion fruit trees are used as partitions for meeting spaces, salad leaves are grown inside seminar rooms and bean sprouts are grown under benches. The main lobby also features a rice paddy and a broccoli field."

A building in Tokyo that has 200 species of rice, fruits, and veggies may have reached new levels in the craze to “green” the office.

A great example of a green company doing their best to help the local environment!
