We were so excited to have Jack Johnson sponsor C3 at his event. He is an environmental activist just like C3. Our volunteers manned both our tent and the concert water bottle refilling stations. Jack Johnson does not allow paper or plastic cups at his concerts.  To see more photos of C3 at the concert see our facebook page

Help us raise funds! Jack Johnson’s charity is matching donations directly to our organization through September 1st, up to a total of $2500. Make a contribution right now to his fund and your money will be doubled by the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation! Go to C3 Raise the Roof Campaign Page to make a donation

Congratulations to us…

Did you see us on USA TODAY on-line we did a video for Martin Luther King Day. Videos were to tell about what you think King would be telling people today. Ours was about the need for reduce, reuse, recycle for our generation.

Did you see us on ABC 11? People creating birdhouses were filmed  making them for the birdhouse competition at the NC State Arboretum.

 

We have been given two awards in the retail sector category of the Triangle Green Business Challenge. We are in the company of major corporations like IBM, so we not only talk the talk, but walk the walk!
