2012 is the year of the Green Cow. No, not because of Chinese Astrology! It’s because here at Hershey’s® we’re always thinking about you. We’re proud to be an American family-owned company, and we know that our employees are our greatest asset. So we focus on working with other American companies which help generate new U.S. jobs as well as stimulate local economies (which is bound to bring a few real smiles)!
We want to build a better environment for tomorrow, filled with opportunities and delicious ice cream! That’s why we’ve been paving the way for the “green” movement for years. We’re not jumping on the bandwagon, we’ve been helping to drive it.
Long before it was the “in thing” to reduce, reuse, and recycle, we implemented methods of recycling used materials and selling reusable goods to local businesses. We have also taken steps to minimize our carbon footprint, and are constantly researching and applying new ideas. Investing in our own pre-treatment system purifies waste from our plant before it enters the city septic line, and owning and operating our own fleet of delivery trucks reduces emissions in many ways . These are just a few of the many energy saving tools we utilize every day!
So next time you think about the future, remember that it’s bright because we care! The year of the Green Cow is here, and your favorite ice cream company is always working for you and your world.
