Since Uplight’s mission is to create a more sustainable future, Earth Day is near and dear to our hearts. Each day is an Earth Day of sorts as we work toward our goals of abating 100M Tons of CO2 and saving customers $10B on their energy bills–all while thriving as a fast-growing, profitable business.
Normally on April 22, Uplighters would be out in the community volunteering or attending an Earth Day celebration. But this was no normal Earth Day. Not only was it the 50th anniversary of the holiday, but it occurred right in the middle of a global pandemic. This year Uplight employees powered down and went offline for one hour to celebrate Earth Day.
Here’s what some Uplighters got up to during their hour:
Rode bikes and painted Earth pictures with kids
Planted Colorado’s state flower, the Rocky Mountain Columbine
Picked up trash along roads and trails
Enjoyed a picnic outside with family
Climbed a tree (look at that view!)
Made a list of things to do to live more sustainably
One Uplighter even water plants, increased a table’s height, and started to build a truck with his son!
We hope this inspires you to take some time to unplug and celebrate our planet in some way, no matter how big or small!
