This past week, GSI’s Green Team organized an Earth Week Challenge to celebrate Earth Day 2015. The Green Team challenge GSI staff to participate in a week long challenge to do as many “green actions” as possible. For every action a staff member completed, GSI donated $5 to The Nature Conservancy. Staff were asked to document their actions with photographs.
In 7 days, GSI staff completed 51 distinct actions. Although each action only counted once for each employee, so there were many more actions completed. GSI donated $260 to The Nature Conservancy. Actions included recycling, taking public transportation or walking to work, carpooling to work, creating bee habitat at home, using reusable dishware for dishes, and biking to work, to name a few.
