Glenborough, LLC, a San Mateo, CA real estate investment and management company specializing in office properties, will conduct special events at its commercial properties in Tampa, Arlington (VA), San Francisco, San Mateo, San Diego and San Bernardino in observance of Earth Day 2010. Beginning on the east coast, Glenborough's Arlington, VA office will collect cell phones for soldiers at all its Washington, DC-area buildings, while the company's 1525 Wilson property will feature several green vendors, including displays, educational materials and refreshments. In Tampa, FL, Glenborough will serve breakfast and provide energy saving tips to its tenants at Park Place/ Promenade, University Center I/II/IV and Oakview Center. At the company's San Mateo headquarters, the staff will introduce its recent partnership with Daylight Cleaning, a building maintenance service that saves energy, creates a healthier workplace and integrates sustainability into everyday maintenance activities. Other activities include a recycling knowledge contest, presentations from cleaning suppliers, and information for individuals to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Also displayed will be Glenborough's $28,000 rebate check from Pacific Gas and Electric -- a result of the company's recent energy savings capital project. Four of Glenborough's San Francisco properties will feature Earth Day activities including 33 New Montgomery, where the Transportation Management Association San Francisco will discuss alternative commute options and more. 60 Spear and 188 Embarcadero will run e-waste and toner recycling events. 201 California will feature its updated recycling program, including hands-on demonstrations of recycling products by the building's recycling/composting partners. Further south in San Diego, The Aventine will showcase nearly 20 vendor partners including ABM Janitorial, Rapid Dry, Green Clean, Alpha Mechanical, Light Source, San Diego Water Authority, Optimum Energy and others. There will be complimentary shredding and battery recycling services for tenants along with incentives for tenants to participate in Glenborough's tenant LEED survey. Finally, Glenborough's twelve Class 'A' office buildings in San Bernardino will all distribute various documents describing recycling practices, green tips and waste reduction ideas for both home and office. Glenborough believes that good environmental stewardship is everybody's business, and is proud to recognize the important role played by its suppliers, strategic partners and tenants.
