Aflac's employee-led Green Committee regularly sponsors events that increase sensitivity to the environment. On Earth Day last year, Aflac dumped a truck load of office trash onto the parking lot of the Georgia-based company's headquarters. Employees combed the cast-offs in search of recyclable plastic, aluminum, and cardboard that should have been placed in separate disposal bins. Such efforts divert 1.5 million pounds of Aflac waste from landfills annually.
