Last October, New living helped the KIAH Channel 39 offices become a greener and healthier environment. One project involved painting and refurbishing one of their conference tables with a very bright, colorful pattern. The second project involved re-painting the offices of the Creative Department and the office of the Director of Innovation & Imagination, Theressa Virgil.
The station once produced a show called “Going Green with Yolanda Green,” and although it no longer airs, KIAH continues to work at greening its image, its mission, and its operations. When they heard about New Living’s eco-friendly, non-toxic paint, they knew they wanted to use it, seeing an opportunity to benefit the environment, as well as to set an example for their viewers. Ms. Virgil spoke very enthusiastically about the cause, stating that, at KIAH, they “believe in going green” and believe in providing the healthiest environment possible”.
KIAH, which makes an effort to encourage viewers to be environmentally conscious, is now — with a little help from New Living — doing even better at practicing what they preach.
