Wayne’s (Green) World
Our own Wayne Doubleday’s passion for our planet hasn’t changed much in 46 years. In 1970, at the age of 12, Wayne was featured on the front page of the New London Day. In that piece, Wayne can be seen participating in the inaugural Earth Day. On that day, Wayne assisted in collecting nearly 600 pounds of cans along a stretch of roadway.
Fast forward nearly 5 decades and Wayne continues to do his part to clean up the planet. Since joining the WMG team in May 2002 he has had many responsibilities but none more satisfying than part of his current role, which Wayne says is, “helping WMG stay green”. Wayne goes the extra mile to ensure WMG maintains its status as a leader in environmentally responsible practices. That means we’re “walking the walk” of a company that prides itself on reducing its impact on our environment. On a daily basis he can be seen sorting through recyclables such as paper, plastic and aluminum cans that may otherwise find their way to the dump.
Wayne lives his life helping to sustain natural resources while reducing our company’s carbon footprint simply, “because I love the Earth.” A sentiment critical to defining WMG, so we say simply “thank you Wayne”; for protecting our planet, so current and future generations can enjoy all it has to offer.
