As part of our Earth Day celebration, we are featuring some of our business partners who are “walking the walk” this weekend, making a difference in their communities and pitching in on various Earth Day projects.
Marstel-Day, LLC, is an idea-driven, value-based environmental company offering green consulting to the public and private sectors. Since its inception in 2002, Marstel-Day has been committed to executing projects that enhance the environment and permanently conserve natural resources and wildlife habitat.
Marstel-Day’s Fredericksburg and Alexandria, Virginia offices will once again team up with Tree Fredericksburg to plant trees in downtown Fredericksburg. Tree Fredericksburg is a non-profit group whose mission is to restore and maintain a vibrant urban forest in the City of Fredericksburg. They’ll also be sprucing up our native plant garden located at our main office in the George Washington Executive Center on Princess Anne Street.
Marstel-Day’s Oakland Office will be participating in an earth day volunteer event with a group called Urban Biofilter, helping in the construction of mobile greenbelts, large mobile planters that provide air filtration, greenhouse gas absorption and wastewater reuse. The mobile greenbelt planters are used in areas where subsurface ground penetration would be inappropriate due to high water table conditions such as the former wetland areas in West Oakland. Marstel-Day volunteers will plant up to six 275-gallon mobile containers in West Oakland, a disadvantaged community area.
Marstel-Day’s on-site employees located in Twenty-Nine Palms, California will be working with NREA to build a flower bed near the Curation Center on May 1. The flower bed will be planted with native plants that will be used to feed Thelma and Louise, the Combat Center’s captive desert tortoise. The Oceanside, CA office will be participating in the Earth Day fair at Camp Pendleton, and the rest of their remote employees will be participating in various local events.
Additionally, Marstel-Day will be holding a ‘swap shop’ at the Frederickburg officeand inviting Marstel-Day staff to take advantage of the Reuse concept of the ‘Reduce Reuse, Recycle’ paradigm.
We applaud the Earth Day efforts of Marstel-Day, as well as their ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, and we thank them for their partnership with Carbonfund.org in monitoring and offsetting their annual facilities energy usage and staff travel.
