Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association's greener way to work day

The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (CMBA) has launched a Green Certification Program and, in conjunction, will hold its first David Webster Greener Way to Work Day, Friday, Sept. 25.

Named in honor of the late David B. Webster, the David Webster Greener Way to Work invites members of CMBA and residents of the Cleveland metropolitan area to find a "greener" way to work, such as mass transit, carpooling or biking. The day is a culmination of the CMBA's Green Initiative Committee efforts to encourage greener practices as good business. To date, 31 law firms/offices have become CMBA Green Certified for 2009-2010.

A noon lunch program at the CMBA will honor David Webster and include a brief presentation by Michael Short of the Clean Air Conservancy. He will discuss Webster's founding of the organization and efforts to use "cap & trade" to improve the environment.

In support of finding a greener way to work, the CMBA is coordinating biking groups for the morning commute. One staging location will be the Church of the Saviour (2537 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, Ohio 44118). Parking is available and bikers will leave at 7:30 a.m., 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to head to Cleveland via the Euclid Ave. bike lane.

For details, contact James Smolinski at the CMBA (jsmolinski@clevemetrobar.org).
