Separately, on November 17, Greenhome.com again sponsored the Pachamama Alliance’s Annual Fundraising Luncheon. Nearly 1,500 people gathered at Fort Mason in San Francisco for annual event, fundraising for the Pachamama Alliance’s twin missions: To preserve the Earth’s tropical rainforests by empowering the indigenous people who are its natural custodians; and To contribute to the creation of a new global vision of equity and sustainability for all. As in past years, Greenhome.com contributed ecofriendly paper goods and cleaning supplies for the event.
Greenhome.com Director of Operations Kari Dorth said, “We were excited to participate in both the leading business plan competition for clean technologies, as well as a leading sustainable rainforest action event, on the same day. We felt it illustrates how broad and inclusive the greening movement has become, and highlights Greenhome.com’s role as the trusted supplier bringing to market the products and technologies that make a positive impact on our environment and world.”
