Video: USGreentech and Clovernook Combat High Rate of Unemployment for the Blind

In the fall of 2016, we set out to solve a marketing dilemma. How can our company better handle the growing number of product samples that we need assembled and shipped? While this is a good problem to have, product packaging can be expensive and finding a reliable vendor could take time. I was challenged to find a solution that could double as an opportunity to help others in our local community. This idea would fall in line with USGreentech's vision of "Tripling the Impact." To us, that means helping our employees as individuals, our company and last but not least: our community. How could we find a way to improve the efficiency of our sample process while helping others at the same time? Enter: Clovernook.

 

 

 

In Clovernook Center for the Blind, we found more than just a vendor- we found a true partner. This Cincinnati nonprofit’s mission is to provide as many jobs as possible to those who are blind or visually impaired. 7 out of 10 blind or visually impaired people are unemployed. Clovernook Center for the Blind and USGreentech are changing that story one sample at a time. Learn more about this unique partnership here:
