Below is the full quote:
Drinker Biddle’s D.C. office promotes environmentally and economically sustainable practices. Our Green Team has held contests to reduce energy consumption and waste, replaced bottled water with tap, and shifted from 10 percent to 50 percent recycled-content paper. We have also held e-waste and clothing drives that have led to recycling or donation of nearly a ton of e-waste and hundreds of clothing items. To raise awareness of environmental challenges and promote continued progress, we have annual Earth Day celebrations.
