"HONOLULU, HI (April 22, 2014) – The Berry Company, publisher of the Official Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages, is partnering with schools on the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, Maui and Molokai to launch Think Yellow, Go Green, the company's telephone directory recycling program. The sixth annual program kicks off Earth Day, April 22, through the end of May, and runs concurrent to the 2014 Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages directory delivery on the neighbor islands.
Local schools on each island will compete to collect the most outdated telephone directories, and keep the directories out of landfills through recycling. The schools have the opportunity to win cash prizes for their students' participation in the program, and award amounts vary based on the school's location.
"The Think Yellow, Go Green program is launching on Earth Day, which is an ideal time to teach students across the neighbor islands about the importance of recycling and giving reusable materials new life," said Ray Carulli, branch manager of Berry's Hawaii division. "We're grateful for the support from the local community for the past six years, and we hope to make 2014 our most successful program to date."
Berry is also partnering with local food banks, including Hawaii Foodbank, Hawaii Foodbank – Kauai Branch, The Food Basket and the Maui Foodbank, to host a community food drive. By using the recyclable directory delivery bags, Berry encourages the community to fill the bags with nonperishable food items and donate to the local food banks."
