Countdown to Earth Day

April 1, 2011

Friday, April 22 is Earth Day, the 41st year of celebration for our planet. This year’s theme is A Billion Acts of Green®, celebrating over 45 million personal, organizational and corporate pledges to live and act sustainably.  How can your company get involved? Here are just a few ways:

  • Organize an earth day hike, walk, run, swim or bike outing.
  • Call your local Parks Department and offer to plan a park clean-up, invasive plant removal or tree planting.
  • Join forces with other local businesses and environmental organizations and host an eco-fair to inform the public about ways they can build a greener future. Schedule it to coincide with your farmers market or other popular local event.
  • Call a school or community center and offer to build and plant a vegetable garden and help maintain it during the year. Donate the supplies and your employees’ time.
  • Host a competition for the best idea to reduce your company’s carbon emissions and support sustainability. Reward the winner with a paid day off plus the gratification of seeing their idea realized. Or invite your customers into the competition via Facebook and reward the winner with free products or services from your company throughout 2011. Check out our Earth Day logo competition!

Whatever you decide to do to recognize Earth Day, consider registering your planned action at www.earthday.org/earth-day-2011. Your employees will be even more motivated knowing they’re participating in the largest-ever environmental service movement.

And if you’re using Bill.com, pat yourself on the back. Digitizing your bill payment processes saves paper, ink and mail truck emissions.

Happy Earth Day, Everyone!
