Earth Day 2009
Jake and I had the pleasure of photographing Shaklee's Earth Day event a few weeks back, in the honorable company of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dr. Wangari Maathai, 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, founder of the Green Belt Movement, and A Million Dreams™ campaign and CEO of the Shaklee Corporation, Roger Barnett.
Shaklee began a tree-planting campaign across the United States and Canada on Earth Day 2006, encouraging the company's 750,000 Members and Distributors to organize tree-planting events at the grassroots level in their respective communities. This year's Earth Day marked the planting of the 1 million tree at Shaklee Headquarters.
It was a fabulous event to both witness and photograph :) One of our images was also featured in all its glory in Times Square, NY thanks to Puja, Shaklee's wonderful PR Lady, thanks gal!
We celebrate being Green here at the studio in numerous ways, our daily commutes are by bike or by foot (which is lovely) :) we get to weddings and photo assignments using Zipcar (a super awesome car-share service in the city-if you have'nt already joined, shoot us an email for a referral and some free driving credit when you sign up) and all our contracts are digital along with offering clients downloadable digital files versus paper prints, doing our part to be green :)
