CINDY YOUR EFQ is back and blooming with excitement from all of the great environmental friendly news that I have just received from the Golden Arrow. Through a two week program created in recognition of EARTH DAY 2010, The Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort in Lake Placid, New York has permanently retired 48 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. (Oh the greenness is coursing through my veins….and cannot wait to continue with all these “green” efforts). How did we go about doing this you ask? Well, it was as simple as becoming a FACEBOOK FAN of the Golden Arrow!!! The program was very simple, for every 25 new fans added between April 8 to 22nd, the Golden Arrow agreed to retire 3 tons of Carbon through the Adirondack Council. In total The Golden Arrow added 400 new Facebook fans in that 2 week period. I am so appreciative of all of our new facebook fans helping with this great cause. We have received new fans from all over the world.
We worked jointly with the Adirondack Council and their Cool Park/Healthy Planet Carbon Retirement Program. This was developed to prevent thousands of tons of carbon dioxide from being emitted by power plants from Maine to Delaware.
Our very own Jennifer Holderied had these words that I felt should be shared with everyone. “We’re so grateful to be able to work with the Adirondack Council again and take advantage of this program.” “It is was a fun way to take advantage of free social media and celebrate Earth Day at the same time. It is nice to see so many people on the same page when it comes to sustainability and helping the environment.” (I am so glad that Jennifer is on the environment’s side and for that I am going to kiss the very earth we walk on…figuratively speaking…lol).
This queen of the environment, also, has to mention the great support and help that some of the staff of the Golden Arrow has also done in the past few weeks. The Village of Lake Placid held its annual VILLAGE CLEAN-UP DAY and being the “green” resort that we are. Several employees took the time on Sunday morning and helped clean up the streets and sides of the roads of Lake Placid. Their friends and family came out and picked up all kinds of debris and garbage and disposed of it in a proper location. (Gosh! I feel so much love from these people! That my wings are ready to lift me right off the ground!!!)
Before I go, this gal just wants to thank everyone who has helped support the Golden Arrow in our “green efforts”. Keep up the good work in making our environment a better place to live. Give yourself a big pat on the back and I look forward to spreading more green news in the future.
