The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin has made great strides to minimize their environmental footprint. The firm stopped using Styrofoam cups in all offices in 2015, and by its estimates saved the planet from 27,000 Styrofoam cups within two years. They also try to be aware of paper usage, which can be difficult for a law firm. Yet the firm still set a goal to become paperless in some areas of the firm by 2020.

Other eco-friendly efforts the firm said they have made include:

  • Planting 20 trees in downtown Durham in honor of the law firm’s 20th anniversary
  • Adopting an easier, more efficient, and user-friendly recycling initiative
  • Replacing K cups with coffee that uses biodegradable cups
  • Tracking the amount of paper printed and ongoing efforts to decrease paper usage
  • Adopting a one-mile stretch of Walnut Creek Trail for quarterly clean up
  • Promoting environmental clean-up outings for employees and their families
  • Promoting alternative transportation among employees
  • Using a car fleet with an EcoBoost option
  • Shredding documents through a service that recycles

The firm is looking forward to another successful event and it is open to anyone who would like to attend. RSVP is encouraged, but not required. For event and weather updates, visit the event page on James Scott Farrin Facebook. Or email earthday@farrin.com. #EarthDayatATC #ATCDurham
