Safety and Going Green Using Ribbons

This week, going green has a different meaning from recycling. It means remembering the importance of pedestrian safety.

Whether it’s wearing mismatched socks, having crazy hair or merely wearing a green ribbon, many schools this week are reminding their students about pedestrian safety. While it seems a simple task to tell people about street safety, sometimes a physical device like a green ribbon can make a huge impact.

While these awareness ribbons are used year round, some of the most prominent reasons for wearing awareness ribbons happen around the starting of the school season. Many schools acknowledge Red Ribbon Week during the last week of October. Others include breast cancer awareness, literacy awareness and cultural diversity awareness. For a full list of awareness ribbon colors and months, a simple reference website is https://www.fundraisingforacause.com/ribbon-meanings-by-month.html.

And, green ribbons are no different.

From awareness and awards to wedding and event decorations, all ribbons have one thing in common: they create a social atmosphere. Ribbons are a perfect way to create fun. Whether it be part of a craft project or using them for decorations at your next party, they inevitably accomplish the same things. They drive your need to socialize.

Getting everyone involved is key to this socialization. Parents and kids alike all need to be aware of their surroundings. And by dressing in green or wearing a colorful ribbon, everyone starts actively seeking safety. Parents can pledge to be more careful when driving, and students can promise to watch when they are crossing a street.

Wearing Your Ribbon

Badge ribbons are a great tool when showing support and awareness for something like Green Ribbon Week. Many people wear name badges at work, so it is easy to attach a ribbon to an existing uniform piece. From blank badge ribbons to custom printed ribbons, design something that helps to get out your safety message.

Rosette ribbons are a fun way to show off your chosen color. Add these fancy ribbons to outfits, notebooks or backpacks to show support and promote safety. From a place ribbon proclaiming safety as number one to a custom rosette, these ribbons help to pledge everyone’s awareness.

Trading Office Noise for Summer Fun

From the noise of machines to the buzz of a social activity, summer is definitely more fun in the sun.

Mondays through Fridays in the Coller Industries building are always noisy. From the ticking of keyboards in marketing to phone calls about orders in customer service, the noise is constant. And the loudest place of all is production and shipping. With the laser machines going full strength and the packing tape being stretched out to wrap each shipment securely, each employee is focused on one thing: our customers.

trading in the office noise for the park, good food and fun with colleaguesLast Saturday however, brought a different type of noise. From the creaking of plastic under bare feet in the bounce house to the gentle murmur of a crowd while they attempted to socialize while eating delicious barbecue, Coller Industries’ employees created a unique sound at the annual company barbecue get-together.

As always, the bounce house was a hit with the kids. And someone brought water guns for the kids to play with as well. While the adults chatted away, the kids ran around chasing each other, and everyone had a blast!

Joe Morely’s Bar-B-Q pulled it off again this year. With spare ribs, two types of sliced meat smothered in barbecue sauce, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, baked beans and rolls, the spread was amazing. To finish off the meal was a giant apple pie and a couple of strawberry cheesecakes. Oh, and cookies for the kids who were still chasing each other with the water guns!

While the noise of the office is anything but mundane, it’s always nice to be out with colleagues and to have the variety of the outdoors and social conversations. We want to say thank you to Coller Industries for providing such a wonderful event for their employees. The company works just as hard at keeping their employees happy as the employees do for the customers.

And, here’s some noise from those busy employees:

Patrick, Production and Shipping Manager, said, “This was our best barbecue yet! And, having the bounce house was great for the kids. My daughter loved it. But, by far my favorite part of working at Coller Industries is all the cool people I work with.”

Hannah, Customer Service Manager, said, “Even though the free food is always a plus, it’s great to see everyone in a relaxed environment and see all the kids. We have such a great group of employees, and it feels more like we’re friends than coworkers.”
