NEW YORK, N.Y., Sep. 16 /CSRwire/ - On Sunday, September 7, in the wee hours of the morning, representatives from both Corporate Coffee Systems and Emerald Brand met at Central Park to serve fresh coffee to breast cancer survivors and co-survivors at the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure. Over 12,000 runners, walkers, and survivors attended this year’s Race for the Cure and helped raise millions of dollars to fund local breast health screening, treatment, education and support programs and breast cancer research.
The Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure is a non-competitive 5K run/walk to raise money for breast cancer research and “run breast cancer out of town”. Corporate Coffee Systems, a major New York-based office coffee and refreshment supplier, has been supplying pre-race coffee, tea and condiments in Survivor Village since 2011. This past Sunday, Emerald Brand, a leading manufacturer of sustainable disposable products for the home and office, joined Corporate Coffee Systems for the first time, supplying FSC® certified cups, 100% recycled coffee sleeves, and Tree-Free facial tissue pocket packs, all of which are free of chlorine, Bisphenol A (BPA), and any known toxins or carcinogens.
This was the first of many joint initiatives that Corporate Coffee Systems and Emerald Brand have in the pipeline. The two companies will join forces again in October for MillionTreesNYC Fall Stewardship Day, when employees from Corporate Coffee Systems and Emerald Brand will care for young forests that have already been planted at Alley Pond Park in Queens.
