EcoAction

Saturday, June 13, 2009

I forget how I stumbled upon E / The Environmental Magazine, but after listing Earthy Beginnings in their online directory of environmental products & services I noticed a company EcoAction a couple of listings below mine. EcoAction is an organization with a mission to make schools across America more environmentally friendly by implementing recycling and conservation in the educational environment. Their story and mission:

EcoAction was started at Clinton High School in November, 2007, as a student organization by John Gray. Less than one week after starting EcoAction, John and the new organization were selected as recipients of a Do Something - GameStop Youth Grant of $500. This money was used to purchase recycling bins, supplies, and fundraisers for the organization. Shortly after, John realized that EcoAction had a place in every school, every home, and every business. And now, we arrive to today. EcoAction maintains a great online portal full of information and resources, and is currently awaiting the approval of 501c3 nonprofit status from the IRS.

Our Mission

EcoAction is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to educate and inspire our society to become more sustainably minded through outreach, activism, and entertainment.
