Think Yellow, Go Green
Hawaiian Telcom and Berry Company News Release
Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages, The Berry Company, Hawaii Food Banks and Local Schools, Work to Collect Directories for Recycling
Students around the state are competing in an annual event to recycle the most telephone directories with the goal of surpassing last year’s recycling totals and winning cash prizes. The Think Yellow, Go Green program is put on by Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages in conjunction with its sales agent, The Berry Company, LLC. The companies team up with schools on the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, Maui and Molokai for the program, set to run April 25 through May 25.
Similar to previous years, schools have the opportunity to win cash prizes for their students’ participation in the recycling program. Award amounts vary depending on where the school is located and the amount of directories recycled at that school. The top schools on Molokai have the opportunity to collect $500 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place.
After the close of the contest on May 25, the recycled telephone directories will be shipped to Oahu to be recycled. Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages contain 40 percent post-consumer materials and are 100 percent recyclable. For more information about the recycling program, visit ThinkYellowGoGreen.com.
In another environmental initiative, Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages and Berry are partnering with Hawaii Foodbank to host a community food drive, for the second consecutive year. By using heavier-weight delivery bags that can be reused, Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages and Berry are encouraging the community to fill the bags with nonperishable food items. Donations can be delivered to any Hawaii Foodbank, or the nearest Ruby Tuesdays, Hard Rock Café or NAPA Auto Parts store.
