green fundraising opportunities allow groups to make money with a minimal environmental impact, or while doing something helpful for the environment. Green fundraising comes in many forms. One of the most popular and beneficial is a recycling program. Your organization can collect used printer ink cartridges, recyclable bottles and cans, obsolete electronics equipment and yogurt containers, all of which have cash value at a recycling center or through a merchant that participates in a recycling fundraising program. Activity-based green fundraising, such as walk-a-thons and bowl-a-thons, get your organization's members involved and don't contribute to consumption while instead encouraging exercise. Another nature fundraiser option is the sale of environmentally sustainable products, such as crafts made from recycled materials or reusable water bottles and grocery bags. The benefits of a green fundraising program extend beyond the money your group earns. You'll also be helping the environment and making your organization known as one that advocates responsibility and environmental stewardship.
