Volunteer


Teachers, here’s an opportunity to get yourself and your students engaged and involved in Earthx2020 and earn volunteer and community service hours while learning about the latest eco-­‐friendly initiatives, discoveries, research, innovations, policies, and practices reshaping our world.

This year EarthX expects to break all previous attendance records and we need volunteers to work with programs and activities appealing to a wide range of knowledge levels and interests – from providing logistics support at events to enlightening children on how best to make a positive difference in the world.

Go “No Containers” Loco.

Pledge to Give Up Styrofoam & Plastic Containers.

The world is using a crazy amount of plastic to-go containers that end up in our oceans and landfills - millions every day! Let’s say NO to styrofoam and plastic COntainers and redirect all that effort and energy towards finding better solutions that use biodegradable and low-impact re-usable materials.

 
Take the pledge to GO NOCO LOCO!

 

Go NoCo Loco

Take the EarthX pledge to Strike Out Straws


Over 500 million plastic straws are used every day in the U.S. Once they are discarded, single-use plastic straws, which are made from petroleum, require over 200 years to break down, which effectively adds to plastic debris in our landfills and the plastic already covering one third of the world’s oceans.

Add your name to our list of environmentally conscious businesses and Earthlings who are determined to remove single-use plastics from the environment.
