How We’re Investing in a Greener Future
This Earth Day, we’re proud to invest in a greener and more sustainable future. In partnership with our native city of Grand Rapids, we're sponsoring the Friends of Grand Rapids Parks’ 2022 Mayor’s Greening Initiative. Together, we’ll work towards introducing 10,000 new trees throughout the city, with an aim of increasing our tree canopy coverage to 40%. Urban tree canopy offers shade during peak summer temperatures, filters air pollution, and creates an enjoyable outdoor atmosphere for all of us to enjoy.
We’re looking forward to helping create a greener city with more public spaces for community events. This year, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks aims to activate 76 city parks through clean-up projects, movies in the park, tree planting events, pop-up events, and more local activities. Our sponsorship for this year’s Greening Initiative will help make that goal a reality.
As an entrepreneur-focused business, we’re big on reducing our carbon footprint by shopping local, too. By sponsoring the Arts Marketplace in downtown Grand Rapids, Acrisure helps offer premiere retail space for local makers and business owners across West Michigan. Stop by the Arts Marketplace in Studio Park to check out their Earth Day display featuring sustainable products from small businesses like Last Mile Café.
From eco-friendly wrapping to mindful production that minimizes fossil fuel usage, Last Mile Café’s coffee products are made with sustainability in mind. As a Black and woman-owned business, they’re big on giving back, too; 10% of each purchase goes directly to social causes like environmental advocacy, clean drinking water, and more. Pick up a bag of their coffee and peruse other sustainable goods from local artists at the Arts Marketplace next time you’re in town.
Living more sustainably can seem daunting, but it’s really about taking small steps. By supporting green initiatives, shopping locally and sustainably, and giving back, we can all make a difference and leave a better and cleaner planet for future generations.
