HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — For the last year Adam & Eve has focused on recycling and decreasing the carbon footprint at its headquarters through its GAIA (Green Apples Increasing Awareness) efforts.

Headed up by Adam & Eve employee Mary Ellen Reiley, the company has replaced its Styrofoam cups with recyclable paper cups, reduced use of electric lighting, and replaced computer monitors with more energy efficient models.

“Adam & Eve employees appreciate that it is possible for them to bring in their personal items for recycling. If it has a battery or a cord, we take it,” Reiley said.

Utilizing local business Shimar Recycling, Adam & Eve employees now separate plastic, aluminum and glass for recycling, as well as office and mixed paper. In the past nine months alone, more than 40,000 pounds of paper were recycled instead of going into a landfill, the company said.

“We are very proud of the efforts of our employees to be conscientious in their recycling efforts,” said Chad Davis, marketing director for Adam & Eve. “In addition to the steps we have taken to reduce waste and reuse items, we have also found interesting placement for items that would otherwise have ended up in the trash.”

The items include more than 7,000 small glass jars that were used for packaging and later donated to local schools, craft groups, etc., and hundreds of pill-splitters that were donated to local veterinarians and animal rescue groups. All of the outdated and un-needed office supplies are donated to the Scrap Exchange, a non-profit organization in Durham.
