Domestic woven area rug manufacturer Orian Rugs is gearing up for its 30th anniversary in business come 2009 with the soon-to-come debut of its new "Goin' Green" campaign.
In a renewed effort to become more environmentally friendly, the company is taking several new steps toward sustainability related to various aspects of its business.
"We are planning a year-long celebration," said Wim De Pape, coo. "And in conjunction with our anniversary, Orian is also announcing the launch of our company-wide Goin' Green campaign. It will offer every employee the opportunity to do their part for the environment."
Details are still in the works. In other news, the company reinforced its commitment to safety and the health of its employees with its Employee Appreciation Day on Aug. 23 with a company picnic for Orian's staff and their families.
