Social media is all about the new and now. Wendy’s and Moon Pie flirt in real time. Pittsburgh Penguins do battle with actual penguins. And Old Spice picks fights with just about everybody.

That’s right, no matter how carefully you plan your editorial calendars, #socialhappens. At one point or another, every company needs to promote an impromptu event, respond to a news story or launch an instant media campaign.

Agency Survival Guide: What You Won’t Learn in Business School

In my formative teenage years, my idea of a work environment was shaped by my favorite TV shows. I religiously watched “The Office” and “Workaholics,” both of which had the same sort of blandness to their office spaces. Everyone stayed in their cubicles, upper management had their own offices (which you’d never want to find yourself in), people wore skirts or ties every day, and employees would count down the minutes until they put in their eight hours and could go home.

Stop Being a Garbage Person. Break Up With Plastic.

Nebo’s always been a bit green, but this year we went full-on, leafy-AF, forest green. With the help of Georgia Tech students, we launched an environmental impact study that gave us tons of insights about when and where we waste. We’re really serious about lowering our carbon footprint. And that’s why in 2018, we pledge to cut the amount of energy, emissions and waste we produce by 10 percent.

To meet this goal, we’ve added compost bins to cut our solid waste, and we’re pretty much a paper-free office. For real, Mr. Epson and Mrs. HP hardly ever run. We recycle everything we can and we donate our electronics. Maybe it’s because we’re led by two veg-heads and a half-hipster who think they can "change the world" (sorry Brian, Adam and Kimm). Either way, many of us live close to the office and we drive hybrids and fuel-efficient compacts to get here.

How Agencies Ushered in Factory Farming

Before I throw stones at others, I’ll throw one at myself. I’m guilty. And Nebo is guilty. As much as I want to believe we’re pure and a force for good. As much as I want to believe we’re against suffering and stand for the rights of others. As much as I want to believe we’re changing the world for both humans and animals, even in just small ways.

We’re still guilty.
