Earthkeeping Around the Globe
Next Thursday, Timberland employees around the globe will participate in the company’s 10th annual “Serv-a-palooza” – a company-wide celebration uniting employees, vendors, community partners, and youth in a day of community service. Many of this year’s 140 Serv-a-palooza projects are focused on environmental stewardship – from cleaning up trash near Mount Fuji to removing invasive plant species in England.
The goal of Serv-a-palooza – beyond enjoying a day out of the office and a unique teambuilding opportunity with colleagues – is to create a positive, sustainable impact on the community in which you’re serving. As a visual example of the kind of impact that can be created by a group of energetic volunteers in one day, consider these photos from another recent Timberland service day — Earth Day 2008, when approximately 100 volunteers spent the day planting native vegetation in Taipei’s Peace Park in Taiwan.

The positive impact — still growing three months later:
Next week’s Serv-a-palooza projects promise to yield equally rewarding transformations … some of which we hope to document and share here on Earthkeepers. Stay tuned.
