Educators create paths that lead to opportunities for future generations. Their institutions provide a place for these paths to take shape and form into realistic possibilities hoping for a brighter world. One local institution is taking a proactive measure to insure their students have a cleaner, greener world to try and shape for the better. Holy Trinity Episcopal School, located on 11810 Lockwood, opened in 2000 for the purpose of providing a superior education for the students of Northeast Harris County. Through a rich offering of academic excellence, spiritual development, and social responsibility, the School provides an opportunity for each student to reach his or her maximum spiritual, intellectual, social, and ethical potential. Wanting to take their pledge to a higher level, Holy Trinity partnered with JUST Energy to take part in their JUST GREEN program, a program designed to offer businesses a way to make a positive impact on the environment while reducing their current energy costs. “We teach our students that they need to do their part in helping our environment and we wanted to stand by that and lead by example,” said Assistant Head of School, Reba Kingsbury. “Together, we can all make a difference in the world in which we live, to be a better, “greener” place.” Some may think that all energy providers are the same, but JUST Energy has decided to focus on a bigger picture with concern for the future. “Though there are many energy providers in Texas, JUST Energy has introduced its green energy program across the country to offer businesses an affordable way to do “their part” in creating a cleaner future for generations to come,” affirms JUST Energy’s Scott Paul, Regional Distributor for Commercial Services. Partnering together was the best logical choice for Holy Trinity as they sought to complete their design on creating the best environment for their students. “We do other green initiatives such as recycling paper, toner cartridges, and plastic bottles,” Kingsbury adds. “Going green with electricity was the next, most-likely addition.” Even industrial businesses are finding that taking part in some green energy can make a difference. Advanced Rig Services, located on Bender Road in Humble, also took advantage of the JUST Green program. “Though our business takes part in the off-shore industry, we felt we could do our part in trying to make a difference for those who will come after us,” said Advanced Rigs V.P., Greg Kimbrough. Large or small, educational or industrial, every business can take advantage of “greening” the future for generations to come.
