    Beards & Braids for Busy Season Q&A with Move For Hunger

    More than 50 million Americans face hunger every day; meanwhile, 40% of the food produced in the United States every year is wasted. Move For Hunger offers a sustainable solution to this inexcusable paradox—and we at GTN couldn’t be more excited to partner with them for our annual 2021 Beards & Braids for Busy Season campaign.

    Fighting Hunger During Tax Busy Season

    Our annual Beards and Braids for Busy Season begins now! In the campaign’s eighth year, GTN is partnering with Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. Our 2021 Beards and Braids for Busy Season (BBFBS) campaign is striving to make an impact on the growing hunger crises that is affecting so many people due to COVID and its impact on global economies. We are very excited about the role we can play in helping the Move For Hunger cause.

After a bit of brainstorming and discussion, we were excited to announce that the theme for GTN’s social cause was education.

    Sustainability when Relocating a Corporate Office – GTN’s Office Move

    “Going green” at home can seem like a relatively simple task. Recycle what you can, reuse and repurpose where possible, reduce the amount of goods you use, be strategic about your outings… the list goes on. When you are at home, it is likely just you and your family all able and willing to contribute to the “green” cause. But when you are in an office environment, going green can be more difficult.
