Being environmentally friendly has become a way of life for many people over the last decade or so. More and more people are looking for ways to be environmentally responsible, from recycling to buying hybrid cars. It stands to reason that environmental awareness should extend to fundraising. Go green to raise green!
The hardest part about planning a green fundraiser is choosing what to do. There are so many easy and fun ways to help the environment while helping your cause, it's hard to know where to begin. One way to address this is by looking around your community to see what it needs. Is there a recycling program in place? If so, for which materials? Are environmentally friendly products readily available? Do the local vendors offer ways to contribute? Does your community seem open to environmental efforts?
The answers to these questions will help you start planning and decide on the best type of green fundraiser to host.
