Golden Artist employees hit the streets of Columbus for Earth Day Clean-Up

COLUMBUS – Every year for Earth Day, employees at Golden Artist Colors step away from their paint stations and don neon orange vests to help clean up the company’s hometown of Columbus.



According to Safety and Health Specialist Alysen Parsons, who has coordinated the event for the last five years, more than 60 percent of Golden’s employees pitched in to clean up approximately 45 miles of road in the area.

Parsons explained they only missed two roads in the town in order to cover two miles of State Route 80, which she said needed a few extra hands due the amount of garbage.
