After a donation to the charity BUILD in collaboration with Charity Buzz, OWC (@OWCDigital) will be taking over celebrity Ashton Kutcher’s twitter account (@aplusk) for the entire day on Wednesday, June 8th.
BUILD is dedicated to empowering kids in under-resourced communities through entrepreneurial-based, experiential learning, ultimately preparing them for future success.
Inspired by the charity’s mission, OWC wants to remind everyone to always help the planet and the people on it to make the world a better place. With the Twitter Takeover this Wednesday, OWC will share their green initiatives via six tweets over the course of the day, encouraging people to embrace the “Think Green” mentality. Each tweet will include #ThinkGreen as a friendly reminder for everyone to strive to be as green as possible.
OWC has a deep-rooted commitment to build sustainable, minimal-impact practices into all levels of business operations, including green energy initiatives and the upgrades and solutions we offer.
Through MacSales.com, OWC offers solutions to upgrade, enhance and extend the useful life of our technology and thus keeping our devices out of landfills and from creating unnecessary e-waste. MacSales.com even gives new life to thousands of Macs through its Refurbished Mac offerings. MacSales.com’s Refurbished Macs are fully inspected and certified by technicians to perform reliably and at peak performance. And with upgrades from MacSales.com, in many cases these Macs can run better than new and enjoy a second life that aligns with the Think Green philosophy.
We’re committed to this philosophy not just in our products and services, but in our own stewardship of the environment through our business operations. OWC received LEED®Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute in 2010 and currently recycles 97 percent of its solid waste materials. OWC also generates more power than we consume through our own wind turbine, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and solar power systems. In fact, OWC’s headquarters is one of the largest privately-owned solar arrays in Illinois.
We truly believe sustainability is good business. Learn more about how we’ve implemented our “Think Green” commitment here and throughout the day via our Twitter Takeover.
