Volunteering

NBC Universal’s commitment to bettering the environment starts in our own communities. Through active engagements both domestically and internationally, NBC Universal Volunteers make a significant impact in the areas of education, community development and the environment.

Earth Week 2010
For Earth Week 2010, employees in New York and Los Angeles, as well as Toronto, Sweden, and London, volunteered their time beautifying and restoring parks and recycling books and clothing.

On the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, more than 100 NBC Universal New York employees gathered to beautify an area of Central Park in partnership with the Central Park Conservancy. The volunteer project involved scraping and repainting over 300 feet of benches.

Across the country in Los Angeles, more than 60 volunteers helped further NBCU’s commitment to restoring Aberdeen Canyon in Griffith Park. NBC Universal announced a $10,000 grant to Los Angeles Conservation Corps to support year-round maintenance of the area.

In the UK, hundreds of London-based employees got involved in Earth Week by recycling books, CDs, DVDs, and clothes at three Green Drop & Swap events. A smaller group of employees spent Earth Day volunteering at the London Wetlands & Wildfowl Trust where they helped to beautify the bird sanctuary and clean-up the grounds.

The Story of Stuff

By Nicole Walters, GreenisUniversal.com

Have you ever been to your grandmother’s house and seen kitchen appliances that she bought in the 50s that are still kicking?  And what’s more, they don’t seem like they are going anywhere too quickly.  After I bought my own home a few years ago and started buying newer versions of these appliances I couldn’t help but notice the difference between what I was buying and what I had seen growing up with Grandma.  I kind of assumed that since my products had been outsourced to developing countries so that I could buy them cheaper, that was the reason and left it at that.

Well, Annie Leonard couldn’t leave it at that. She has spent the last 10 years researching the materials economy – the life cycle of all of our stuff – and created this short web-based documentary.  If you’ve got the 20 minutes, it’s a fountain of real eye opening information.

What’s the Hex Code for Green?

By Dana J. Robinson, NBC Universal

If you don’t know what a hex code is, don’t sweat it – there are plenty of other ways for you to go green online! There are tons of ways to be proactive about saving the environment conveniently located on the web, which means you don’t have to leave the house to participate. (Added bonus: you’re also reducing your carbon footprint by not driving anywhere…win/win!)

My Baby Treehttp://www.mybabytree.org

The Indonesian rain forests are disappearing at an alarming rate, thanks to factors such as the country’s massive rubber and palm oil industries. According to the site, forest the size of 6 football fields is destroyed illegally. People and animals, both in Borneo and around the world, need these forests in order to thrive. For a small donation, you can pay for a new tree to be planted…but it doesn’t end there! You get to watch your tree grow up right before your eyes (and from the comfort of that sofa you’re probably still on… ahem!)
