The CORAL Office Gets Recycling
When the CORAL staff moved offices one year ago this month, we were disappointed to learn that our financial district office did not support a building-wide recycling program. As members of an international conservation organization, we felt it was crucial for CORAL to represent good practices at the local level and prioritize the protection and conservation of our immediate environment.
CORAL Conservation Program Associate Anja Mondragon (pictured at right [center], with Development Assistant Elizabeth Curran [left] and Communications Assistant Catherine Nguyen [right]) headed up the effort and we’re pleased to announce that starting in September, CORAL will recycle all of its paper, plastics, bottles, and cans. In partnership with the Center for Biological Diversity, our nonprofit neighbors on the sixth floor, we have implemented a floor-wide recycling program.
Unfortunately, the other fifteen floors of our building do not yet have a recycling program. With Anja at the helm, CORAL will continue to work with our neighbors to create a cost-efficient recycling program for the entire building. Working with community partners in our seven project sites around the world, CORAL encourages stakeholders to protect their local coral reef environments. With our new recycling program in place, CORAL is working toward a similar goal at home.
