Sharing Green Resources is Easy, Thanks to New askHRgreen.org Online Media Toolkit
(Hampton Roads, Va., Feb. 3, 2014) – Green-themed brochures, posters or articles, anyone? Since askHRgreen.org was launched in 2011, developers of the region-wide public awareness and information campaign have amassed an array of helpful materials filled with simple steps residents can take to find their “inner green,” while protecting the environment in Hampton Roads. Now, these tools are available for the public’s use via an easy-to-use askHRreen.org Online Media Toolkit that debuted this week.
Featured on the website and ready to download, the toolkit collateral is especially useful to civic leagues, community groups, home owners associations, schools, clubs, businesses—and any organization or individual with an interest in improving neighborhoods and communities.
“The materials are meant for sharing,” said Julia B. Hillegass, askHRgreen.org team leader. “If your civic league is urging residents keep storm drains free of leaves and debris, we have both editorial and a colorful display ad they can drop into a newsletter. Or, if your home owners association wants members to know why it’s bad to put cooking fats, oils and grease down the kitchen drain, we’ve got that covered too with a downloadable brochure and print-ready tip card.”
Ideal for both online and print reproduction, the toolkit items are professionally designed and carry the signature askHRgreen.org graphic look. The materials are organized so that it is easy for users to browse and select the topic they seek in the medium of their choice. In addition to logos, print and digital ads, rack cards, brochures, tip cards, posters and billboards, there are feature articles, publications, info-graphics, radio scripts and stickers available too.
The materials featured in the Online Media Toolkit were developed to support and promote askHRgreen.org, the focal point of the region-wide public awareness and information campaign that encourages residents to become good environmental stewards. The content-rich site features everything from recycling tips and pointers for keeping local waterways clean to water-saving ideas and simple steps to make local living easy on the environment.
“We encourage community and neighborhood organizations to download and distribute the materials,” added Hillegass. “Getting the word out is an easy way for organizations to support green initiatives here in Hampton Roads.”
