Company Will Donate to Environmental Institute for Golf When You Scan or Follow

Waukegan, Illinois (April 11, 2011) – Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and Precision Laboratories, a leading provider of specialized chemistry for green industries, is counting on the help of turf professionals to raise funds for The Environmental Institute for Golf. On Earth Day, every time an individual scans the provided Microsoft® Tag with their smart phone, becomes a fan of the company on Facebook, or follows the company on Twitter, Precision Laboratories will make a $5 donation per event – up to $5,000 – to the golf charity.

“Since one of our corporate objectives is to increase awareness of better water and resource management practices, partnering with The Environmental Institute for Golf was an easy choice for us,” said Don Spier, vice president of turf and ornamentals at Precision Laboratories. “They are the premier environmental stewardship organization in our industry and on Earth Day every superintendent can raise money on the Institute’s behalf without ever leaving their office.”

Available for free, the Tag Reader app works for all major smart phone platforms and can be downloaded at Precision Laboratories will reveal the smart Tag on Earth Day and make it available via Twitter, and Facebook, By using social media to promote the donation, Precision Laboratories is hoping to generate additional interest in the turf industry for this important environmental cause.

“Using and promoting smart technology like Tags helps to reduce paper usage, so it’s only natural to make the connection with Earth Day,“ explained Spier. “But the environmental focus is ongoing at Precision. We recently launched the Water Logic App, which focuses on water management and gives superintendents another tool to maximize inputs with the help of Precision Zone Surfactants.”
