MADISON, Wis. (3/23/09)--A record of more than 61,000 units of its debut, environmentally friendly 2009 calendars were sold by CUNA Strategic Services Inc. (CSS) this past year, with 10% of the proceeds donated to Earth Day Network.
Outselling any other first-time calendar offering, “goinggreen” features monthly green living tips and is printed on recycled paper. The tips encourage members to make small changes in their lives that can yield big results for the planet. This year, CSS donated $2,800 to Earth Day Network, a non-profit group promoting a healthy sustainable planet through education, politics, events and consumer activism. CSS offers the green calendar again in the recently released 2010 calendar catalog, and will continue its pledge to donate 10% of the net proceeds to Earth Day Network.
