We had 60,000 flyers for 12 markets across the U.S. and we worked tirelessly to get community leaders and women of influence on board and they did embrace the message.  

Today the Beauty In Beauty Out Tour is thriving and we still support this project.  In fact it is coming to a city near you! Please support it.

2013 Client Roster: Host Papa

Website Content 
Written by Kandis Knight
HostPapa, a leader in corporate responsibility and sustainable business practices is your Green alternative to web site hosting.  Host Papa  is committed to reliable hosting and quality customer support.
At Host Papa, the mission is a deep commitment to being socially responsible.
HostPapa was one of the first web hosting companies to make a public commitment to going green. Host Papa strives to promote the development and use of wind and solar energy resources by purchasing green energy certificates to offset all the power used in their data centers and offices. By putting equivalent clean energy back into the grid, Host Papa has become a business model for all hosting companies.
Host Papa’s energy is certified by the following sources:
HostPapa has taken the initiative of going green by purchasing 100% green renewable energy to power our data centers, web servers, office computers, laptops and office space. These energy sources supply HostPapa’s entire equivalent energy consumption into the power-grid with certified 100% renewable green energy sources, such as wind and solar-powered energy.
After an energy audit by an outside provider to calculate Host Papa’s total electrical energy consumption from traditional sources, HostPapa purchased “green energy tags” or certificates from a certified green energy supplier. That supplier calculates the total energy consumption of our operation and uses their suppliers of green energy to pump in 100% equivalent energy back into the power grid. This effectively cuts down on the carbon dioxide-producing (CO2) energy that Host Papa normally would have required from non-green energy sources.
Since Host Papa started to purchase green energy, the company has removed over 100,000 kg (over 200,000 lbs) of CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases affecting our environment. That’s the equivalent of removing 20 cars from the highway each year!
By purchasing the green energy certificates, Host Papa has completely offset the amount of greenhouse gas production by our current electricity providers with certified wind and solar-power providers in the United States and Canada.
Simply put, Host Papa went “green” because of the companies deep commitment to corporate responsibility and to the environment. Ultimately, Host Papa wanted to be the green leader in web hosting. The servers and equipment used by HostPapa run 24 hours per day and consume a great deal of electricity, for that reason, Host Papa is dedicated to purchasing clean-energy sources that contribute positively to the environment.
