New California Members Love Blue!
The leaves are out, the trails are open, and the local farmers’ markets are in full swing. It’s so good to remember why Vermont is called the Green Mountain State. Along with getting out into the garden and spending time in the great outdoors, we’ve been very busy adding some amazing new members to the 1% network. Here’s a special welcome to new California based businesses Merryl Brown Events and Vanderhoof Chiropractic.
Merryl Brown Events is an award-winning event design and production company, specializing in elegant corporate events, social events and weddings. They have been recognized nationally and internationally for excellence in their industry, receiving top awards from the esteemed International Special Events Society, the National Association for Women in Communications, Event Solutions and BizBash, among others. Their experience and professionalism is reflected in their ability to create events for their clients that are both exquisite and flawlessly produced. Personal service, attention to detail and creative design are the trademarks that they bring to every event that they produce.
Merryl Brown Events joined 1% for the Planet because they believe that each of us have the responsibility to make a difference in our corner of the world in whatever way we can. They have been giving back to their community of Santa Barbara, CA since the company first launched in 2009. One of their first non-profit events was for the Community Environmental Council, for whom they created an annual branded event, The Green Gala, which won awards year after year for its high diversion rates, beauty and creativity. Merryl Brown Events is proud to announce that they have chosen the Community Environmental Council as the beneficiary of their annual 1% for the Planet donation.
We also welcome Palo Alto, CA based Vanderhoof Chiropractic. As a chiropractic office, they appreciate both their patients well-being and health. That being said, they also love the planet as well. Dr. Aaron has been an avid surfer for almost his entire life and being in the water has been like a second home to him.
“Having our practice in the heart of silicon valley where saving energy is key, we are surrounded by a community based eco-ethic that encourages the responsible use of resources, reusing, and recycling. In our office. We encourage our patients to use reusable water bottles, use energy saving equipment, and recycle in every way that we can. Informing our patients that we have joined one1% for the Planet has been a great way to raise awareness of our commitment to sustainability. We feel that by living here on mother earth, we have an obligation to give back, and partnering with 1% is a great way to do so.”
Congratulations on becoming part of the 1% network! We’re thrilled to have you.
