Photo Gallery: Environmental Affairs Kicks Off First Annual Green Fling

It may have been pouring outside, but rain didn’t stop our Environmental Affairs team from kicking off the first annual Green Fling at the Corporate Office. On May 29, our Conference Center transformed into a party with games, prizes, music, giveaways, and a photo booth. Recycling vendors collected employees’ recyclable household materials such as cardboard, aluminum, and even electronic waste. Check out a few of our favorite photos from the day!

Leggett & Platt Executives Take a Pie in the Face for a Good Cause

Leggett & Platt has partnered with United Way for several years — but we don’t just raise funds for a good cause, we have fun while we do it! In 2014 we hosted a community-wide fall festival, held bake sales and raffles, even a dodgeball tournament. However, the highlight this year was when our leadership decided to get in on it; employees participated in an auction for the chance to throw a pie in the face of their favorite executive.

On May 16, our Corporate Office kicked off participation in the Eco Initiative, joining over 50 other Leggett & Platt branches who have registered for or implemented the program.

The Eco Initiative provides a system to improve environmental performance in our operations which adds to our track record of environmental stewardship. To date, some of our efforts include energy savings through high-efficiency fluorescent bulbs and condensing units, as well as paper, plastic, aluminum, and cardboard recycling. In 2013, on average, the Corporate Office recycled approximately 30,000 lbs. of paper, 600 lbs. of plastic, and 7,000 lbs. of cardboard each month!
