Away Media takes aggressive steps to make its workplace more environmentally conscious.
Away Media recognizes that we have a responsibility not only in our physical footprint but in our ability to influence our clients as well as consumers' footprints through the emotional and intellectual impression we leave on our audiences. The potential to effect positive change is profound, therefore we must lead by example.
Here are a few of our green office initiatives:
Every member of our staff can choose to work from their home and avoid commuting altogether.
Ride, Run or Walk
Our office is a short bicycle ride, run, or walk from the Great Allegheny Passage Trail. We encourage our staff to ride, run, or walk to the office and provide bicycle storage and a shower. We also have bikes on-site that employees can use for errands.
Energy Saver Electronics and Equipment
Away Media makes every effort to purchase Energy Star rated appliances, electronics and equipment including computers and printers.
We recycle office materials including paper, aluminum cans, glass bottles, plastic, toner cartridges and more.
Community Supported Agriculture
We offer a subsidized CSA program, where staff can get fresh organic food from nearby Cedar Rock Farm throughout the Summer and Fall.
