CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

AOL has announced the winner of its “Share Your Cause” contest. One Warm Coat, a nonprofit that collects and donates clean, reusable coats for those in need, was chosen for its “Warm Coats, Warm Hearts” campaign, a partnership with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and Burlington Coat Factory. The campaign will be featured in a premium position on AOL.com this November, timed to One Warm Coat’s 4th annual holiday coat drive. The announcement was made last week at the Cause Marketing Forum’s annual conference.

Be Green Packaging is setting up this country’s first sustainable plant-fiber manufacturing facility based on the Green Products Innovation Institute’s standards for sustainability in manufacturing. The new facility, located in South Carolina, is an investment of $7 million and creates 175 new jobs. Be Green designs and manufactures Cradle to Cradle, G.P.I.I.- certified packaging from plant fibers, supplying companies such as Whole Foods, 7-Eleven, and Gillette Razor.
