Earth Day is just around the corner, and to celebrate, ModCloth wants to help make our world a little greener! Not only will we be donating a percentage of sales on April 22nd to a green charity, but we also want to volunteer for an eco-friendly activity that makes our community a healthier, happier place to live and work. From cleaning up the water table, to planting flowers at the Frick museum, to scrubbing public pools, we were overwhelmed with the amount of green volunteer opportunities. We narrowed the list to three choices, but we need your help picking the final winner!
Be a part of our volunteer day by voting below for the green activity you’d like to see us support. Just leave your choice as a comment to this post, and the project with the most votes will become our ModCloth Earth Day Employee Volunteer Project. We can’t wait to see what you pick. Here are your options:
1. Farming a Community Garden -Garfield Community Farm, just up the street from the ModCloth office, is in need of some TLC for the planting season. ModCloth employees would be urban farmers – digging, planting, weeding and getting dirty helping organic veggies grow! Yum.
2. Planting Trees in Pittsburgh - A classic Earth Day activity, TreeVitalize and Friends of the Urban Forest would have ModCloth planting trees and pruning bushes in our neighborhood and all over Pittsburgh!
3. Making Our Neighborhood Beautiful - We love being so close to all the coolest bars, cafes, and shops in Pittsburgh, and this is our opportunity to help keep it looking great! The Lawrenceville Community Clean-Up would have us picking up litter and scrubbing the streets of our very own stomping grounds!
Happy voting. We will announce the winner Monday, April 6th.
