Brenthaven recently volunteered with EarthCorps as part of the Brenthaven Triple Impact Program. The Triple Impact Program allows Brenthaven employees to feel connected to their community by giving time and resources to causes they are passionate about. This is done by donating 1% of time, 1% of product and 1% of profits throughout the year to different organizations.
Seattle-based EarthCorp trains emerging environmental leaders from across the United States and engages more than 10,000 volunteers each year to restore natural areas around the Puget Sound region. The Brenthaven team put on their work gloves and completed over 13,000 square feet of new invasive plant removal in Discovery Park. In order to help create healthy forests, the Brenthaven team focused on removing aggressive weeds such as English Ivy and Himalayan Blackberry and maintained areas where these weeds have been removed. The end goal of this project was to improve Discovery Park in Seattle, providing a healthy and thriving forest and a place for people to connect with the outdoors. With the help of EarthCorps and Brenthaven volunteers, Discovery Park will continue to offer a biologically rich and diverse natural area for urban dwellers and an unmatched opportunity for environmental education.
