Here at Castle Hill Fitness, we believe that taking care of our environment is taking care of our clients and community. As we continue to make changes and improve our facilities, we are starting to see the results of our efforts – Austin Green Business Leaders recently awarded us Platinum Status, the highest level there is, for our environmental efforts as a business. We’ve even reduced our trash pick-up days to only one day a week, due to our decrease in waste production. So with Earth Day coming up, we knew we wanted to find a way to honor our Earth and get people even more pumped up (see what we did there?) to participate in our Green Initiative with a cool, fun event. Thus, our Castle Hill Fitness Eco-Challenge was born.
The rules of this challenge are simple – you simply pick up one of our cute, little scorecards (or download it off our website!), and start checking off the environmentally friendly things you do through April 22. Turn in your scorecard by the end of the month to be eligible for great prizes. And you get a prize just for participating! Our goal is not only to boost awareness of Earth Month and Earth Day but for people to see how they don’t have to go out of their way to do earth-friendly deeds; the smallest change in actions can have such positive outcomes.
The Eco-Challenge isn’t the only Green Initiative event we have on our docket this month. We’re going all out on the activities! We recently hosted the Austin Green Business Leaders in a Seminar about Composting and Recycling with the intention of learning about the different sustainable business practices our fellow green business leaders are making and learning more tricks that we can apply to our own business practices. On Friday, April 14, we’re hosting Balcones Recycling at noon for a free workshop. They will teach us more about what happens once our recycling leaves our hands, where it goes, how it’s sorted, and what is recyclable and what’s not. Open to that public (that’s you)!
Our philosophy here at Castle Hill Fitness is that our mission for improvement is never quite finished – there’s always something new we can do to minimize our environmental footprint. Come check it out!
Interested in joining our Eco-Challenge? Either stop by Castle Hill Fitness in person to pick up a scorecard, or download one off our website!
