Cyprus Credit Union, West Jordan, Utah, staff members planted a tree in honor of Earth Day. The tree was planted in proximity to the credit union’s recycling containers, reminding employees and visitors of the credit union’s responsibility to the environment. The credit union has made recycling and conserving bins for excess paper waste. All departments now have individual recycling bins for excessive paper. All nonsecure paper waste is now being recycled through Green Fiber, a company that collects and recycles paper waste and produces environmentally friendly insulation for homes and businesses.

Wauna Federal Credit Union, Clatskanie, Ore., announced its 2009 “Going Green” plan at the credit union’s 42nd annual meeting. Going Green is an incremental process with each year bringing a new commitment to the community and environment. During this year’s Earth Day celebration, the credit union gave members a reusable shopping tote bag. Each branch will have a unique and numbered bag design with two Darren Orange Prints for collecting. The artist plans to visit Wauna FCU and personalize totes for lucky members.
