Corporate Environmental Volunteerism

Corporate Environmental Volunteerism

“Never doubt that small group of individuals can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  Margaret Mead’s famous quote rings true in Nancy Bank’s “Community Care” globe.  So many of us would like to volunteer and give back to the communities in which we live, but with work and family demands, finding the time can be difficult.  One solution is corporate volunteerism.  By encouraging their employees to get involved in community service, companies build a reputation for direct involvement in their communities and reap substantial benefits.  Encourage your office to volunteer for the environment!  Clean up a local park or beach: repair urban landscapes by planting trees; set up recycling programs in your community.  Corporate Environmental Volunteerism….good for the company, good for employees, good for the community and good for our planet!

P.S.  My mom works at Reebok and they do exactly this - she and her colleagues volunteer through Reebok - and it works!  GIve it a try! - Liam
