Earth Month Activities!
Happy Earth Month! While the Green Business Leaders team is currently working from home, we're still eager to connect you with our online resources . We're also available to provide virtual sustainability and waste reduction presentations to your organization's staff. Please contact us for more details!

Another way to continue to focus on sustainability is to participate in the Drawdown Ecochallenge. It's a fun and social way to take action while learning about the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. Watch this video to learn how to join the Washington County community team or create your own team.

Corporate Sustainability Collaborative
The Corporate Sustainability Collaborative began as PDX Green Teams Unite in 2015 as a space for green team leaders in the Portland Metro to network and share best practices about business sustainability. The organization has grown in recent years and hosts quarterly Green Team Leader sessions to share ideas, problem solve and discuss updates impacting the green business community. These sessions are a great way to connect with other sustainability professionals and get motivated to start your next green business project.

While the organization typically offers many Earth Month events every April, this year's in-person celebrations have been cancelled due to Covid-19. Sign up for their email list to receive information about future events or stay in touch on Facebook.
