At Nitro,we are committed to supporting our local and global communities. There are a few different ways wehave incorporated this giving thread into our company: by allowing our employees time off to volunteer at placesnear and dear to them and matching donations.Each month we highlight a cause that Nitronauts are passionate about, and this month we’re excited to celebrate Earth Month.
In celebration of Earth Month, Nitro is supporting and donating toOceanicGlobal, a key environmental organization that encouragesus to care deeply for the ocean and provides solutions to protect it. Their manifesto states: “Oceanic Global honors humanity’s essential relationship to our ocean. We empower behavior that protects our ocean’s health and, in turn, our own. We raise awareness for the devasting effects of human consumption on our aquatic ecosystems, and work with leading scientists, conservationists, artists, and industry experts to drive positive change.”
OceanicGlobal partners with both ambassadors and other non-profits to educate and provide positive changes to the state of the world’s oceans.We have also engagedwith Peptalk on our journey.Peptalkis a partner platform that provides diverse ways to support Earth Month including stories, live events, and academy sessionsfor Nitronauts to participate in.
Sustainability is at Nitro’s core. Ourplatform reduces the use and waste of paper by allowing customers to edit, collaborate, and sign documents without printing. We are a paperless company, and it is part of our mission to enable allbusinesses to also become paperless.
“Over the last year alone, we have witnessed climate change across the globe, from the devastation of the Australian & California wildfires to destructive storms across the Americas and Europe. Businesses have a key role to play in protecting the Earth, not only by accounting for climate impacts in key decisions but by understanding their impact on the environment and setting goals to counter this. At Nitro, sustainability is a key part of both our products and strategy. As a Nitronaut and lover of the outdoors, I’m proud of Nitro’s dedication to promoting environmental responsibility, and the fact that the Nitro platform is making a positive impact on the world.” – Hannah Keen, Global Director of Business Operations & Strategy
This month,we’re encouraging Nitronauts(and you!) to be aware of how to take care of the planet. Even if you do not have the means to make a financial donation,there are still many ways to make an impact.
Here are fivefree and simple environmentally friendly things you can do for the rest of the month:
1. Pick up trash on the street, at your favorite park, hiking trail, or beach.
2. Make sure you, your friends & family are R-E-C-Y-C-L-E, recycling.
3. If you can walk instead of drive to a destination – go for it.
4. Use a reusable water bottle and/or coffee cup if you have them.
