#NoFoodWasted: This Earth Week, Help Reduce Food Waste!

Forty percent of food in the United States ends up in landfills. And a family of four spends more than $2,000 a year on food they never eat.

This Earth Week, Green is Universal is raising awareness about food waste, and we’d love your help! Here’s how you can get involved:

Watch and share our #NoFoodWasted video…

…and infographic.

Thanks for Helping Us #ShareATree!

Since 2009, Green is Universal and the Arbor Day Foundation have partnered to give a gift to the environment—with your help. When you #ShareATree, you share a tree planted by the Arbor Day Foundation.

For 2014, we asked talent from our brands to draw trees. Then, we showcased them in a virtual forest, and asked you to share their trees or decorate your own.

Thanks to all of your shares, Green is Universal has donated $25,000 to the Arbor Day Foundation.

The campaign is now over, but check out the trees from our talent:

Comcast Cares Day 2014: East River Park Cleanup

On April 25, we continued celebrating Earth Week by participating in Comcast Cares Day, one of the country’s largest corporate volunteer events. More than 80,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees, friends, and family volunteered at events across the world. Here in New York, we helped revitalize East River Park, with New York Cares, by planting flowers, mulching, weeding, and painting.

George Oliphant, host of NBC’s George to the Rescue, led the event, and Michael Jack, president and general manager of NBC 4 New York, and Telemundo 47’s president and general manager Cristina Schwarz kicked it off.

By the end of the morning, we’d applied 10 cubic yards of mulch and compost, restored one lawn, revitalized five planting beds by removing invasive species and replacing them with native plants, and painted over 1,000 feet of fencing along the FDR highway. Check out some photos from the day:
