Hershner Hunter Takes Steps to Reduce Waste in Lane County

Updated November 8, 2019

Hershner Hunter has been awarded certification from BRING’s rethink Business program for taking steps to reduce waste and save resources. Since May 2019, Hershner Hunter has been working one-on-one with a sustainability management expert to assess opportunities and make on-the-ground changes throughout its operations. Through BRING’s rethink Business program, Hershner Hunter eliminated toxic cleaners and converted our kitchen to reusable dishware and flatware. We are also on our way to shifting our practice to paperless, and in the meantime, have replaced our standard printer paper with recycled paper products.

“Rethink helped us further develop a firm-wide culture that contemplates our impact on the environment and community, without compromising our commitment to providing the highest quality legal work and service available. For example, we have virtually eliminated single use plastics and paper dishware, and dramatically reduced food and paper waste,” said Todd Johnston, a member of BRING’s board and a partner at Hershner Hunter. “While we have always been dedicated to the highest level of performance in all aspects of the legal business, we are proud to publicly include our commitment to the environment in that effort.”
