How Our Clients Inspire Us to Live & Work More Sustainably

This week one of our clients, GRAYL, announced the all new GEOPRESS – a next generation water purifier that can hydrate travelers and survivalists using even the sketchiest of waters. This easy-to-use, cutting edge filter and purifier substantially decreases the need for single-use plastic water bottles and provides a more environmentally conscious way to guarantee safe drinking water anywhere, anytime. GRAYL’s Kickstarter for the GEOPRESS goes through January 9.

At PARSONS + CO, we are so proud to partner with a client that truly puts their heart and soul into their products to make the world a more sustainable place. The announcement of the GRAYL GEOPRESS reminded us there’s never too much you can do to live and work in more earth-friendly ways!  We’ve listed some things that PARSONS + CO will continue to do to build a more environmentally mindful company. Here are just three examples:

  1. Our clients. We take pride in representing companies that share our value of keeping our environment healthy – one example being GRAYL and another Montinore – a biodynamic winery in Willamette Valley, Oregon.
  2. Community organizations. We live local and we buy local. Joanie, our founder, just helped the PCC Farmland Trust raise almost $30,000 in one day with the match support with the One Eighty Foundation.
  3. Attending and hosting events. Knowledge is power and we have a lot of fun spreading that knowledge. This October, Grapevine Women – an organization co-founded by Joanie Parsons- focused on the SLOW Movement. This encompasses everything from slow food to slow lifestyle, slow clothing to slow flowers,  essentially slowing the pace of life and ultimately consumption.

There’s always more to be done and we’re ready to take 2019 to the next level! Ready, set, go!
