Broadway’s “9 to 5: The Musical” is challenging offices around the country to go green. If your office recycles, conserves paper or uses energy-efficient equipment, the folks at “9 to 5” want to know about it.
As part of the Broadway Goes Green initiative, the “How Green is Your Office?” contest will reward one office with 10 tickets to see “9 to 5: The Musical” on Broadway. Also included is the opportunity to be photographed with the cast and featured on the musical’s Web site as an example of a “Greening Office.”
“We believe that outreach is a part of our responsibility and since our show takes place primarily in an office, we felt that would be a great place to focus our efforts,” the contest’s Web site states. “Imagine the difference we could collectively make if we brought some easy, common sense practices to our lives between the hours of 9 to 5.”
“9 to 5: The Musical” is based on the 1980 film of the same name starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. For Broadway, Parton wrote the musical’s Tony-nominated score and Allison Janney (“The West Wing”) stars in the role created by Tomlin.
Winners will be chosen by a panel including the National Resources Defense Council, The Broadway Green Alliance, The Mayor’s Office and The Women’s Network for a Sustainable Future. The deadline to enter is Sept. 1.
The contest’s Web site also offers tips on how to make your office more eco-conscious, from powering down electronics at the end of the day to stocking the break room with reusable utensils.
