Annual Green Day

This Thursday Rackspace is hosting its 4th annual Green Day to educate Rackers and the surrounding community about the latest in going green. This year’s Green Day will fall on Earth Day – April 22. Along with celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Rackspace will also be celebrating achieving the Castle’s LEED Gold Certification! The continuous recycling of the abandoned Windsor Park Mall into new and modern headquarters earned Rackspace the prestigious sustainable award.
