This year for Earth Day, FastSpring’s Employee Ambassador Team sponsored local cleanups all over the world!
Meals and supplies were provided to local office teams who met up to clean up together, and remote team members cleaning up in their own areas were able to expense a meal, too.
We got to “see” a great turnout, thanks to a competition for employees to win cash for submitting photos of their cleanup efforts to our internal Slack “water cooler” channel.
The following employees (and some of their family members!) also consented to having their photos shared here, and we’d like to brag about them and their hard work on April 21, 2023. Check out their awesome photos below!
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Here are Aziz and Erol cleaning up Amsterdam, representing our local sales team in the Netherlands:
Austin, Texas, US
We love cross-team collaboration! Thanks to Holly from our investment partner, Mohan from Product, and David from Marketing for meeting up to help beautify Austin:
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Not to be outdone by our Austin team, the Halifax office got together to clean up Salt Marsh Trail, a former railway turned into a walking trail that comprises a 9km section of Canada’s Great Trail.
Thanks to Nataliia from Product, Igor and Viktor from Payment Operations, and Adam from Product for submitting some great photos of their cleanup trip, where they covered both sides of a long causeway and picked up glass, styrofoam, wrappers, and even a pair of shoes!
Los Angeles, California, US
Working remotely didn’t stop Ben from People & Culture from getting out to help clean up LA — looks like he accomplished a lot even on his own!
Atlanta, Georgia, US
Big thanks to Beth from the FastSpring Employee Ambassador Team for helping coordinate this year’s contest — and even bigger thanks to her grandson for helping her clean up a local sports complex near their home outside Atlanta. She said they’re never too young to learn about preserving our natural resources.
Santa Barbara, California, US
Vijayan cleaned up his neighborhood in nearby Goleta outside Santa Barbara, too:
Near our headquarters in Santa Barbara, Keslie from Sales, John from Engineering, and Sudipto and Lisi from Product met up on Leadbetter Beach to collect trash, followed up by beachfront tacos.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Earth Day 2023 cleanup projects, and please continue to help us keep our communities clean year round! 🌍
