Through its proprietary stewardship platform, GreenPath, Delaware North promotes environmental sustainability all year long.
But with Earth Day just around the corner, several locations are kicking GreenPath initiatives into high gear.
Delaware North Sportservice associates at Little Caesars Arena — where the company operates food, beverage and retail services for the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings and NBA’s Detroit Pistons — celebrated Earth Day on Monday with a pledge to “Bee the Change.” Inspired by the many environmental benefits of bees, associates were asked to make a sustainability pledge. Pledges included avoiding harmful pesticides, planting bee-friendly flowers and purchasing local honey.
More than 450 packets of wildflower seeds, which will cover over 10,000 square feet of land and will help feed bees, were also handed out as part of the effort.
Associates at Niagara Falls State Park, which Delaware North operates for New York State, marked the start of Earth Day activities by hosting a series of e-waste drives throughout March.
Teaming up with Sunnking, an electronics recycler, Delaware North associates and their families and friends were offered the chance to scrap e-waste free of charge, with Sunnking donating a portion of the proceeds to a local non-profit. In all, the drive collected 1,685 pounds of e-waste.
