Earth Week with Chicago Gateway Green

In honor of #EarthDay this week, we have partnered with Chicago Gateway Green to provide you with a week of content highlighting how we can give back to our environment and Mother Earth. 

How to Keep Respecting Mother Earth

We’re wrapping up our Earth Week with tips on how to continue respecting Mother Earth and the environment.

Bringing Earth Inside

A very easy way to bring some life to your home (literally!) is to incorporate greenery into your space. Today, we’re giving you some simple tips and tricks on indoor plants in your house.

Ways to Celebrate Earth Day 2020

1. Download the app iNaturalist to help you identify trees on your street or in your local park.

2. If trees aren’t your thing, see if you can tell which birds are singing nearby.

3. Or pick up trash while you get some exercise on your walk. Just don’t forget your mask, gloves, and a sturdy garbage bag.

4. Plant pollinators in your backyard. You can shop for specific seeds that will thrive in Chicago.

5. Watch (or re-watch) Our Planet on Netflix.

6. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with NASA.

7. Haven’t been much of a plant parent in the past? Here are some easier plants to take care of in your home for beginners.

8. Start an at-home compost bin from your food scraps.

9. Have a picnic! Whether it’s just on your driveway, in the backyard or on your living room floor, grab a blanket, some yummy food, and enjoy!

10. Make crafts from recycled materials.

Recycling 101

Did you know that you’re actually not supposed to put your recyclables in a plastic bag before putting them in the bin? Or that cans must be dry before recycling? In this post, we provide a number of tips and tricks to keep in mind when recycling to help our environment.

A first look at our Columbus office

We have officially opened our doors to our new Columbus office! Located in the heart of the city, we are excited to call the Brewery District our home, a flourishing neighborhood that is also the location of the Hoster Brewery redevelopment project.

Our new space spans 5,200 sq. ft. and is located in a historic property dating back to 1900. We worked to maintain the integrity of the original space, which features beautiful brick walls, polished concrete floors, industrial pane windows, and original barn doors that create an incredibly unique space filled with natural light. We furnished the space with products from a number of manufacturers including: Teknion, StudioTK, Allermuir, OFS, Compel, Gus Modern, Crow Works, National, Global, and SitOnIt.

Own Your Voice

Join us at the Teknion Showroom for an evening with 
Emilie Aries, an author, podcaster and CEO.

At this event, Emilie will discuss the difference between assertive and aggressive leadership, and the many benefits of asserting yourself (strategically) at work. Participants will hone best practices for assertive communication through verbal, visual, and vocal mediums as a to garner respect in a world that doesn’t always like women who lead.

The agenda is as follows:
5:30 PM: Cocktails and Appetizers
6:00 PM: Workshop
7:30 – 8:00 PM: Q+A with Emilie, Book Signing, and Networking
