Verdani Partners I Happy Thanksgiving!
Elections and transition of leadership often bring uncertainty and unease. During this period of uncertainty, it is important to stand united and focus on the beauty that living in a diverse country and world brings to our lives. It's important to continue our focus on using resources in a more efficient way. Not only does it helps protect the critical natural resources we need for a livable planet but it's also good business! The fight against climate change connects us across all ethnicities and continents.
 
At Verdani, we are grateful for the cultural and intellectual diversity that our team members provide. We are thankful for all our clients and partners in sustainability. 

Let’s continue our work in making what’s here better with love and respect! 
Tips to Reduce Waste Over the Holidays
  1. Ask your guests to bring reusable containers to take leftovers home
  2. Compost food scraps
  3. Use clothe napkin and reusable dishes
  4. Bring reusable bags to the grocery store
  5. Recycle bottles and cans
Lettuce Give Thanks for Veggies
Did you know that an estimated 46 million turkeys are eaten on Thanksgiving? Go green and skip out on the meat this year. Harvard School of Public Health has some great ideas for vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes. For an even more sustainable Thanksgiving, remember to shop for local, organic fruits and vegetables and bring your reusable bags to the grocery store.
Fight Off that Winter Cold with Something Hot
Our favorite cold fighting remedy in the office this season is courtesy of Shubha, our Sustainability Manager. Shubha introduced us to her favorite Ginger Tea recipe. Not only does this delicious drink help boost our immunity, but it is also fun to share a cup of tea and socialize with coworkers! What you will need:
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Honey
  • Lemon
  • Black Peppercorn
