VinSolutions unveils their ‘VinCycle’ program for the New Year as their first companywide green initiative.
Overland Park, KS – January 9, 2012 – VinSolutions, an industry-leading developer of Internet-based Customer Relations Management (CRM) and Internet Lead Management (ILM) software, has launched an internal recycling program coined “VinCycling”. Capitalizing on the New Year, this marks the first sponsored and companywide green initiative as they campaign in-house to “Bleed Blue, Go Green”.
The immediate goals at VinSolutions are to reduce disposal inefficiencies, increase use of resources available by incorporating waste reduction practices into their daily operations. They have teamed up with RecycleWorks to provide strategic placement of paper, plastic and aluminum recycling bins throughout the offices and have additionally formed an advisory board that will handle the collection process, present educational opportunities and report future milestones.
“With major company growth comes an increase in disposable waste. We want to ensure that we are doing our part to lessen our footprint on the environment,” said Keith Polsinelli, Chief Operations Officer at VinSolutions. “As we continually strive to make a positive impact on our business community and in the lives of our staff, I am proud that VinSolutions is taking a leadership role in the state of Kansas to help increase the percentage of waste properly recycled compared to the national average.”
“We are excited to be helping VinSolutions move toward a more sustainable workplace,” says Steve Greene, Director of Business Development for RecycleWorks. “They were looking for a workable, real-world solution for coordinating their recycling efforts, and we are able to customize our services to accommodate just about any office environment. VinSolutions is one of our largest projects to date, and we’re looking forward to growing their program as much as possible.”
