Garden Club pots up for KPMG’s Green Initiative

The Garden Club was asked if it would supply desk plants, handed to the first 50 KPMG employees to arrive at work, as part of KPMG’s Green Initiative. KPMG Bermuda believes that sustainable communities are directly tied to how well we live in our environment. The KPMG Green Committee has a number of annual initiatives and goals which are supported by lunch & learns, quizzes, posters, audits (eg waste and paper usage) and quarterly giveaways. This year they started a Tip of the Month with February being “Improve your indoor air quality with plants and by keeping your home and office well ventilated”. President Susan Conyers and a small group took on the project, the results of which can be seen above. The project was hailed a success, so much so that KPMG are planning to repeat it. A donation by KPMG was made which will be applied to our annual Scholarships, and Community activities.
