When it comes to saving some green, GEICO delivers the savings to customers all across the country. When it comes to being green, I am sure we can all agree that the Gecko stands out. And when it comes to thinking green … that’s where our associates can truly shine.
For years, giving back to our communities has been a big part of corporate culture at GEICO. Already this year, we’ve participated in river clean-ups, hosted Earth Day fairs and electronic recycling events, and celebrated environmental heroes.
In Fredericksburg, Virginia, members of our fast-track Management Development Program participated in the spring river clean-up of the Rappahannock River. It was a great way to connect with team members and Mother Nature.
Associates working at our office in Tucson, Arizona, nominated and honored co-worker Meghan F. as their “Environmental Hero” for her exceptional work in being green.
Meghan (pictured below cutting the ribbon) is the ultimate “Green Hero” at home and work. Everything that can be recycled is recycled; she helps other associates be more environmentally friendly, too.
Since 2011, the Tucson office has recognized one person that does small things daily to reduce waste and protect the environment. The garden and bench (made by Tucson associate Jerry C.) is dedicated in their honor, to show that one person can make a difference.
