Is Earth Day an event at your company?
Yes, we are promoting it externally.
Yes, we are marking it internally.
Yes, we are doing both.

Happy Earth Day. It's April 22 and millions of people will be marking the occasion by talking about the environment, global warming, recycling, etc. Many companies are marking the occasion too. How about your company?  That's our poll question of the week.

Why do I ask? I guess to see just how many window and door companies might truly be embracing "green." Most companies in are industry have embraced energy efficiency, and many have stepped up efforts to be greener in the ways they do business. But how many of companies have made green a core value? 

Okay, an Earth Day celebration (or promotion) is probably not required for your company to qualify as "hard core green" but it might be an indicator.  If your company is marking the occasion, email me and let me what you're doing.  If your business isn't, but you still think you're pretty green, I'd like to hear what you're doing too.

"Will 2009 Be Better Than 2008?"

There is definitely some optimism in the market, but it's not shared by everyone.  Our poll results suggest most window and door industry companies still expect to be down this year.
