Cyan Group - Celebrating FSC Friday Since 2011!
Cyan Group's celebrations over the years have been highly original and the 2013 celebrations were no exception...
The Cyan Group staff kicked off the day with everyone wearing green. In the morning, everybody watched a presentation on FSC, explaining what it is and where it all began (this was also a great way to train the new starters on FSC and is a good recap for the rest of the team). Staff shared a homemade lunch and everybody was given an FSC goody bags filled with Fair Trade sweets, leaflets, FSC pencils, postcards, facts and bookmarks. After lunch, staff competed against each other in a multiple choice environmental quiz – the winner received some Fair Trade chocolate (we have it on good authority that the Cyan Group team really do get quite competitive when chocolate is involved!). FSC Friday 2013 ended with the team watching some short films on FSC and saving the forests of the world.
Cyan Group visitors were made aware of the day through the balloons and posters decorating the glass board room and visitors were informed of the reason for the celebration.
Leah Fitch, PA to Directors & Office Manager said: “At Cyan we understand the importance of promoting the FSC brand, and feel that FSC Friday is the perfect platform to do this. Not only can we involve the whole company in fun, educational activities, but we also use the day to raise awareness and promote the benefits of good environmental practices to our clients and suppliers. The FSC logo appears throughout the day on all the materials we use to support the day and ensures everyone involved becomes more familiar with the FSC brand and its values. It’s pivotal that we as a company, who are FSC certified, continually strive to reinforce the qualities of FSC to our clients and suppliers, not just on FSC Friday, but all year round and this day’s activity allow us a regular reminder to focus our attention towards green awareness”.
