The Work-Family Connection Takes Going Green to the Next Level

According to Aurora Pipeling, CEO and non-profit founder, “The Work-Family Connection has been finding and creating new ways to put into practice our commitment to Going Green, in our office, our After School Enrichment Programs and our community.” 

As a non-profit educational organization based in Hunterdon County, The Work-Family Connection practices recycling paper in an unusual way that not only helps local farms, but also saves trees and lessens the overall environmental impact.  The organization shreds all paper, and the shredded paper is given to a local horse farm that uses it for bedding in the horses’ stalls. 

The paper is biodegradable, and by adding paper to shavings, the mixture is more absorbent and helps the shavings to break down into compost more quickly into top soil. Fewer trees are destroyed for shavings, so using the shredded paper helps to conserve this natural resource as well as saving the farmers money in bedding costs.

The Work-Family Connection operates Before School, After School, Kindergarten and Summer Camp Programs in more than 30 schools across New Jersey.  Programs are structured with activities focused on community service and character education; while linking to the student’s school day learning in science, math and technology.  For more information, please visit www.workfamily.org or call (908) 534-5935 ext. 10.
