Earth Day 2019
We Care About Our Community
Earth Day is a big event at SERVPRO of Danvers/Ipswich. Last year, we canvased the local area helping out wherever we could – working with towns to clean parks, supplying water to thirsty volunteers cleaning Crane Beach and working with organizations like Rebuilding Together to help out specific individuals.
On a larger scale, we wanted to make a positive impact on the wide-spread loss of trees after a very rough winter so we partnered with the Earth Day Network and committed to 300 Acts of Green. We handed out 300 evergreen saplings to our customers in Danvers, Ipswich, Boxford, Topsfield, Georgetown, Rowley, and Newbury.
This year, to support the Earth Day Network 2019 campaign “Protect Our Species” which calls attention to endangered and threatened species, including the bumble bee, we’ve partnered with the Sustainable Horticulture department at Essex North Shore School in Danvers, MA to grow 300 flowering plants that we can deliver to our customers. These amazing students have selected 4 varieties of flowers that attract bees and promote pollination. In the long term, increasing our bee population affects us all so we hope you will join us in being a part of the solution.
We will be posting progress reports on the plants, leading up to the delivery so check our Facebook page often to see the latest updates and to enter giveaways that we’ll be announcing throughout the month of April.
Check in with your local town to find out how you can be a part of Earth Day in your community.
