Back in our lakeside Vermont office, we are reflecting on a few key takeaways from the Sustainable Brands ’14 Conference last week in San Diego.
Here’s one more reason to dig into some Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia: they provided critical funding for a greenhouse gas emissions reduction project on a picturesque Vermont dairy farm.
On this Earth Day, we are celebrating funding from Designtex for the Oka Trees of Hope Reforestation Project.
According to the World Health Organization, 2 million deaths worldwide are attributable to unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene. Our Clean Water Campaign is changing the lives of thousands through access to clean water.
For three years we have been the official carbon offset and renewable energy sponsor of Sustainable Brands events.
Our Clean Water Campaign is improving the lives of thousands by installing water filters in homes across Kenya, Ghana, and other communities.
We have an Olympic gold medalist on our team! Winner of the 2010 gold medal in moguls, Hannah Kearney has joined the fight to keep our winters cool by offsetting all her training travel emissions with us.
Give from the heart and your food shed. Visit your local farmers market or co-op to gather locally grown ingredients for easy recipes. Here in the Northeast, your gift basket could be stuffed with local squash, apples, garlic and toasted pumpkin seeds, along with a recipe for butternut squash soup (roast all, puree with a bit of water, enjoy). Eating local reduces the miles food travels between the farm and the table, lowering greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
Our Clean Water Campaign is changing lives across Kenya, Ghana, Honduras and other communities. To date, our in-country partners have installed simple Hydraid® biosand water filters in more than 2,300 homes.
My job at NativeEnergy is to vet new projects, particularly forestry and clean water projects. I work closely with NGOs and small businesses trying to make a difference here in the US and in Kenya, Ghana, Honduras, Tanzania, and beyond.
