If They (NBC) Can Do It...So Can You!

I recently discovered NBCUniversal has taken a great initiative to go green.  I was very surprised that a multi-billion dollar company would really go above and beyond in supporting and promoting the importance of sustainability.

"NBCUniversal is making a commitment to sustainability across the entire company. Our Green is Universal initiative is focused on bringing an environmental perspective to everything we do, informing and entertaining our audiences while driving more sustainable practices into our own operations...Our Green Is Universal initiative translates our environmental commitment into action. It identifies ways to “walk the talk” and integrate sustainability across our span of businesses, in front of the camera as well as behind it."  via

From theme parks in Orlando to production houses across the country, NBC is persistant in practicing business in the most sustainable ways.  Saving tens of thousands gallons of water to building facilities that are solar/wind powered, NBC is setting the best example of how companies should take initiative.

NBCUniversal has also developed a few Apps for your iPhone that offer great green tips as well as guiding you to be green based on your surroundings.  iShop Green is an app that offers an abundance of information of sustainability.  The app can tell you where to go in your neighborhood to purchase a local/green product or material.  The latest Green related articles and living tips are literally at the tip of your fingers.  

I have this app and I use it everyday, multiple times a day.  

Download the app and you will see that being Green isn't such a hard thing!

Thank you, NBCUniversal for taking the billions of dollars you earn and reinvesting $$$ back to Mother Earth!  For more information (and believe me, there is a TON) on NBCUniversal check out their website greenisuniversal.com.
