MEDIA ADVISORY: Monsignor Pace High School and Gus Casamayor, Sustainable Florida Leadership Award Winner, Request the Honor of Your Presence to Witness How School Officials, Kids and Businesses Can Work Together to Help Our Planet While Saving Money

On August 22nd, Pace Will Be the First "Green" School in Florida Using Certified Paper, Recycling All Paper Waste and Printing With Petroleum-Free Ink; Pace High School Is Saving $20,000 by Going Green!

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) -


WHO: Over 1,300 students, parents, teachers, staff of Monsignor Pace High School and other administrators of Florida schools will listen to Mr. Casamayor's video seminar prepared by Certified Green Partners about the importance of using certified paper from sustainable forests and the difference between certified and recycled paper.

WHAT: This seminar will be the kick-off for his new mission: to turn every school Green. It will highlight the advantages one school, Monsignor Pace, will garnish by following Mr. Casamayor's directives. Pace will become a Certified Green Partner by switching to certified paper that comes from sustainable and well-managed forests. The paper, 100% Green, costs less than recycled paper and runs better in their office printers. Also Pace will do the printing with the chain of custody certified printers that use vegetable-based inks instead of petroleum-based ones. All the books and paper waste at Pace will be used to make new paper products instead of continuing to fill our landfills. The school will save half of their trash pick-up costs.

"Preserving our forests, using petroleum-free inks, reducing our trash while saving money... How can we go wrong?" said Ana Garcia, Monsignor Pace High School Principal.

WHERE: Pace's Gymnasium at 15600 NW 32nd Avenue, Miami, Florida 33054

WHEN: Friday, August 22, 2008 from 9:00 to 10:00 AM
