Green Activities

Commonwealth Psychology Associates® (CPA) is dedicated not only to serving our clients and community, but also to preserving our planet and natural resources.

We are a green company and we take steps to conserve energy and resources whenever possible. Our efforts have been successful and between 2009-2013 we:

  • Recycled over 17,000 pounds of paper (enough to save approximately 144 trees)
  • Recycled 2,950 pounds of plastic, glass and aluminum (otherwise bound for a landfill)
  • Prevented 9.59 metric tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere (equivalent of over 980 gallons of gasoline being used by a passenger car)

CPA has paid over $12,000 for recycling services during that time period.
