Recycling and sustainability are true passions at Extra Help. In fact, our founder Teresa Katubig was a founder of the Recycle Williamson County committee, which started the recycling program in Williamson County, Illinois.
Extra Help is proud to support the green movement. We have taken a number of steps to reduce our impact on the planet. While our personal efforts may be small, we believe that if we each do our part, it can make a huge difference. We encourage you to take a few small steps of your own and keep building on them. Here are some of the ways that we are trying to have a greener approach to business.
We started by developing an office Recycling Center and by educating the staff about the importance of recycling. Then, we began to eliminate the purchase of as many disposable items as possible. We also changed to new energy efficient light bulbs and turned off our computers at night. We also implemented a policy to use recycled paper and eliminate plastic trash bags.
You really can make a difference. If you haven’t started your own Green Movement, please start now. It won’t make a big impact on you, but it will make a big impact on the environment!
Extra Help is proud to support organizations working to serve and strengthen our communities. Through the efforts of our enthusiastic team members and our contributions, we share our success within our communities by giving back to non-profits and educational institutions that address vital community needs and issues. We direct our giving to areas that we believe are important to the vitality and success of our communities, including community development, education and human services.
Here are a few of the groups we support: Night’s Shield Children’s Shelter, Lighthouse Shelter, Salvation Army, The H Group, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois, The Women’s Center, YWCA St. Louis, St. Patrick’s Center and Children’s Home + Aid. We encourage you to follow the links to each of these deserving charitable groups and consider offering your support too.
