On April 22, 2022, the world and Lloyd EcoDistrict will celebrate Earth Day – and so can you!

Lloyd EcoDistrict is grateful to have a strong community that includes our generous local business partners! Three local partners have stepped up this year to help us champion Earth Day and the importance of Lloyd EcoDistrict’s work by becoming one of our Earth Day Oregon Business Partners: Beneficial State Bank, Café Yumm!, Genentech, and Pacific Power

Genentech and Pacific Power both have large workforces in Lloyd and have been longtime supporters of our work. In addition to helping to sponsor elements of our work this spring, they will both be activating teams of employees during Earth Week to clean and maintain Peace Memorial Park, Holladay Park, and the Lloyd neighborhood. We’re exciting the Beneficial State Bank, a B-Corp bank that we have had a long relationship with is also sponsoring this year’s Earth Day Oregon campaign!

The Café Yumm in Lloyd, a new partner for us, will be donating a portion of sales on Earth Day from 10 am to 2 pm on Earth Day to Lloyd EcoDistrict – so save the date and make plans to order lunch from Café Yumm that day for yourself, family, or team. 

You can also consider making a direct donation to our organization so we can continue to be a living laboratory for sustainability, pioneering collaborative community-scale solutions for social and environmental health.
