Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced it has collected more
than 500 pounds of pull tabs for its second annual E.A.R.T.H. (Every
Area Recycling Tabs Helps!) Campaign. Proceeds
from the campaign support Ronald
McDonald House Charities (RMHC), which convert pull tabs into funds
for local chapters. Approximately 3,350 Cintas employee-partners
participated in this year's campaign, generating a total of 800,000 pull
"Ronald McDonald Houses around the world depend upon the funds raised
from recycling pull tabs," said Jennifer Goodin, RMHC of Greater
Cincinnati Executive Director. "Cintas has been an incredible corporate
partner in this effort. We are truly grateful for their help in caring
for families with critically ill children who are receiving medical
treatment far from home."
The annual Cintas E.A.R.T.H. Campaign encourages pull tab recycling
throughout the year to benefit RMHC's own long-standing collection
program. Since 1987, Ronald McDonald Houses throughout the world have
gathered billions of pull tabs, equaling millions of dollars to help
improve the health and well-being of children. This year, the recycling
campaign involved 47 Cintas facilities across 26 states and in Canada.
Employee-partner involvement increased 150 percent from 2011, during
which the campaign generated 320,000 tabs for RMHC of Greater Cincinnati.
"Saving pull tabs is an easy way to make a difference in the lives of
others and support sustainability at the same time," said Melanie Boyle,
Environmental Sustainability Specialist, Cintas. "Our employee-partners
went above and beyond this year and we look forward to uniting our
efforts with the RMHC collection program for years to come."
