The Power of Many: Walmart & EarthShare

WM_GreenRoom
April is Earth Month. What used to be one day of activism (April 22) on behalf of the planet we all share has expanded over the past 41 years to become a full month of volunteerism, educational events, and giving back to the environmental and conservation causes we each care about as individuals. But Earth Month is also a testimony to the combined power of many – each year, more than half a billion people join forces around the world to contribute what they can of their energy, skills and resources to help build a healthier, more sustainable future.

EarthShare is a U.S.-based non-profit federation that was founded on that same principle: harnessing the incredible impact that comes with many people working together to take care of our natural resources. The organization has achieved this for 25 years by partnering with workplaces across the country, connecting hundreds of thousands of employees with EarthShare member charities each year and giving those employees effective ways to get involved in supporting critical environmental causes.

When Walmart and EarthShare joined forces in 2006 to engage the largest private employee population in the world in caring for our air, land, water and wildlife, it stood to reason that the results would be nothing short of amazing.
