Comprehensive workplace solution Roam has chosen sustainable waste management and hunger relief company Goodr to assist them in reducing their carbon footprint. Our partnership, which began in March, includes both Surplus Food Recovery and Organics Recycling from all seven of Roam’s Georgia locations. Recovered food from each of the locations is then donated to our network of local non-profits.
A comprehensive work, meet and office solution, Roam provides remote workers and businesses of all sizes with access to technology-equipped meeting spaces, flexible office space and member-only shared workspaces. Roam’s full-service coffee bar offers a variety of handcrafted beverages, local light bites and snacks at each of their seven locations. Heavier breakfast and lunch options are available from a selection of preferred vendors including A Seasonal Affair, Christophe’s Catering, Cinco and Flower Child.
In the five months since our partnership began, more than 2,600 lbs of surplus food and organic waste has been diverted from local landfills. The emissions offset is equivalent to 263,000 gallons of water saved and 79,000 smartphones charged. This impact will continue to grow as the partnership expands to Roam’s new Dallas location opening in early 2023 at Grandscape in The Colony, Texas.
“We are proud to have welcomed Roam into the Goodr family,” CEO Jasmine Crowe says. “The impact this partnership has made in such a short time is impressive and we look forward to that expanding as Roam continues to grow.”
“Partnering with Goodr has equipped Roam to live out our vision for multiplied impact in new and exciting ways,” said Roam’s Senior Director of Operations, Chad Kimberlin. “In addition to delivering a hospitable food and beverage experience for the companies meeting in our space, Goodr now allows us to give back to our local community by providing surplus food to those in need. We are excited for our continued partnership and the good we’ll accomplish together as we expand into new states and communities!”
