April brings showers and…Earth Day!
Though 1% members are more likely to fall into the ‘Make Everyday Earth Day’ category, April is when much of the rest of the world tunes in to environmental issues. We’re fortunate around this time of year to hear from many members about their Earth Day initiatives, and wanted to share some of their great ideas. We’ll start with a few here member initiatives, and will have posts throughout the month about goings on in the 1% network and how you can support member businesses and their NGO partners:
Ecomom, online retailer of products for a healthy family and home, has just kicked off their Healthy Home Makeover contest. They’ve partnered with dozens of companies, including fellow member Q Collection Junior, to create a $75,000 package of ‘ecomom approved’ products for a healthier and environmentally safe home. Would you like a chance to win? To enter, click here, upload a photo of your family and say why you deserve the Healthy Home Makeover. The winner will be chosen by an expert panel of judges at the end of April
VeeV, purveyor of delicious Acai spirits, is partnering with New York Tree Restoration Project to accelerate their goal of planting one million trees in NYC by 2017. Join VeeV fans in planting a tree with the click of a button when you post your “Toast to the Planet” on VeeV Açaí Spirit’s Facebook Page. When 50,000 toasts have been posted VeeV will plant 500 trees in New York City. Plus posting automatically puts you in the running for daily prizes and a grand prize that includes a trip to the Big Apple to attend NYRP’s 500,000 Tree Planted Ceremony.
