LEHI, Utah, April 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Known for donning the trademark company orange in most settings, today employees, distributors and executives of global wellness leader XANGO, LLC opted for the color green as part of the worldwide Earth Day commemoration. About 100 green thumb executives and employees from the company's Utah headquarters planted trees, cleared trails and pruned shrubs along popular canyon trails. Meanwhile, XANGO distributors participated in projects large and small in communities across the globe and shared their efforts on Facebook, each vying for the opportunity for permanent recognition at company headquarters.
"Today is about making the world a better place through XANGO's celebrated core value of volunteerism," said XANGO President and CEO Robert Conlee. "As a company, we're always striving to improve our stewardship of the environment."
Beyond today's activities, XANGO continues to make advancements in reducing its carbon footprint and protecting the environment. These include:
- Energy-efficient features at XANGO's headquarters, such as a ground loop thermal heating system, a green roof that reflects sunlight, a building automation system, fluorescent and LED light bulbs and low-flow toilets, faucets and fixtures
- Enhanced use of Forest Service Council (FSC) certified paper in product packaging and marketing materials
- Recycling of scrap glass from XANGO® Juice bottles for reuse in fiberglass insulation
- Green chemistry and low-temperature processing for Glimpse products to reduce carbon footprint, and use of delicate plant-based ingredients in product formulations to eliminate use of harsh chemicals and toxins
Meanwhile, XANGO continues the search for the most compelling Earth Day projects. Starting today through next week, XANGO invites distributors and customers to post their Earth Day projects on the company's Facebook page. The person receiving the most votes for their project will have a tree planted in their honor at XANGO headquarters, alongside a plaque with their name on it.
"Technology enables us to share in each other's accomplishments on Earth Day, wherever we live," said XANGO Founder and Chairman Aaron Garrity. "We're fortunate to include the most driven, caring people anywhere in the world as our distributors and employees, and we believe strongly in the ability of motivated individuals to change the world one person at a time."
