Mountain Rose Herbs is proud to be an EarthShare Oregon Business Member. EarthShare is a national network that connects environmental organizations across the United States using businesses as fundraising platforms. In 2011, we launched our very first EarthShare Oregon campaign by organizing an employee giving program that connects our staff with like-minded environmental organizations working to protect and defend the places we hold dear. Through this program, we have successfully connected our employees with over 100 environmental organizations that they are passionate about supporting. That is nearly $100,000 given the past 8 years!

Giving in 2020
Traditionally, we hold an in-person EarthShare kick-off event in our staff break room where we invite local nonprofit groups to present, answer questions, and connect with the staff. This year, due to Covid restrictions and necessary safety protocols we are thinking outside the box.
For the entire month of December, we will be using the following avenues to ensure every staff member has the opportunity to give:
• Virtual information sharing and updates on our internal communications platform
• EarthShare Oregon information kiosk in the main break room
• Pledge forms distributed with pay checks
• Informational posters and flyers posted throughout our campus
For our 2020 campaign we are show-casing three essential Oregon nonprofits: Oregon Wild, Beyond Toxics, and Cascades Raptor Center. Further, we will be matching dollar-for-dollar, whatever amount our employees raise by the end of this year, to double their impact and further support our planet.
Although here in Oregon, we focus on our local and state nonprofits, the fact that EarthShare is a national network means it is available to businesses across the country.
