There is a growing recognition that the health of our natural resources and the health of the economy go hand in hand. In Durham, we hear this most in terms of recruiting top talent to the area. Clean air and water, places for recreation, safe and local sources of food – all of these things make Durham a great place to live.
EarthShare NC is positioned to help businesses be a part of keeping North Carolina great. To that end, EarthShare NC is once again connecting corporate interest in the health of our community with the nonprofits who are working every day on issues that impact our health, economy and quality of life.
Last year 34 companies and over 300 employees came together to celebrate Earth Day through this program that integrates corporate interest in the health of the community, team building for employees, and service to benefit the nonprofits caring for our natural resources.
This year a new component was added to the Program: Check out the photos from the first-ever Match Day events to see which conservation nonprofit each team will be volunteering with to #ImpactNC this April!
The culminating event to the April activities is the Corporate Earth Day Breakfast on April 27th at The Stockroom at 230 in Raleigh. The event is open to all Triangle area businesses…and tickets are still available. The keynote speaker is Jay Richardson, general manager, New Belgium Brewing.
