Office Depot recognizes energy-efficient counties


DELRAY BEACH, Fla. Office Depot announced that it is joining with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to recognize six counties from across the United States for leading the way in promoting energy efficiency and achieving success in this year’s NACo “Change A Light” campaign.

The winning counties are: Hennepin County, Minnesota, Carroll County, Md., Habersham County, Ga., Fairfax County, Va., Arlington County, Va., and Douglas County, Minn.

In October 2008, each of the winning counties received 1,000 free Office Depot Green brand Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) to distribute throughout their respective communities, courtesy of Office Depot. Office Depot, a partner with NACo since the inception of the county program in 2006, provided a $3 coupon good towards the purchase of a new light bulb to all county employees and residents who signed the pledge. Office Depot Green brand CFLs are part of the Company’s wide assortment of environmentally preferable products, available online at

“Office Depot congratulates the six counties that won the 2007 County ENERGY STAR Change a Light Campaign,” said Richard Diamond, vp of merchandising for Office Depot. “We are proud to partner with NACo to help county employees and residents gain the environmental and economic benefits of switching to Office Depot Green Compact Fluorescent Lights.”
