2016 Triangle Corporate Earth Day Recap

Theme: Ripple Effect

EarthShare NC invites you to join us in celebrating Earth Day 2016 with a program that integrates corporate interest in the health of the community, team-building for employees, and service to benefit the nonprofits that care or our natural resources every day. The connections and impacts you make create a ripple effect—we make our community stronger and healthier and keep the Triangle a thriving place to live and work.

Join us as a Sponsor

Your company will make a tangible impact in the Triangle; your employees will have fun and build stronger team relationships through the three events described below. You’ll connect with other business leaders who value corporate social responsibility and get to know local conservation leaders.

1. Corporate Challenge

April 14, 2016

We will match your employee team with a hands-on volunteer project in the Triangle and coordinate logistics to provide a fun, valuable team-building opportunity. The Challenge is also a friendly competition between companies, with awards for Spirit, Participation, Teamwork, and Overall Corporate Challenge winner. See the 2016 Corporate Challenge Recap video!

2. After Party & Auction

Come directly from your volunteer site to join your colleagues and other Corporate Challenge Teams at the After Party at the Speakeasy at Tyler’s Taproom in the American Tobacco Campus. Mingle, play games, and share what you accomplished. You’ll also have the opportunity to bid on unique items in the Silent Auction, including a vacation week at Nagg’s Head, a one-of-a-kind painting by the cats at Carolina Tiger Rescue, local crafts, and more. You bring your muddy sneakers and stories, we’ll bring the food, drinks and prizes!
