Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 01, 2012
Today marks the one year anniversary of EcoCleans community giving program, PROPS. Over the last year they have raised $ 4700 for the following organizations: Hill Country Conservancy, SafePlace, Austin Lyric Opera, Austin Pets Alive, SOS, Project Transitions, Keep Austin Beautiful, Theater Action Project, Sustainable Food Center, Colorado River foundation, KOOP Radio, and Austin Film Society. Its our way of saying thank you, of showing proper respect we like to say, to the organizations fighting the good fight here in Austin. This town is just full of unsung heroes busy creating positive change. From water quality to fair access to the arts, the work our partners do is a critical in making Austin the great city it is, says Kerstin Shoberg, EcoClean Manager.
Through the PROPS program, EcoClean donates 5% of their sales every Wednesday to their partner of the month. Our customers make progressive choices for their health and the environment. The PROPS program is an extension of that pro-active spirit. We commit to giving the 5%, but its up to the broader community to come in with their cleaning and increase the donation, says Shoberg.
Starting this Wednesday, the September 5% will be donated to The HealthStart Foundation, a local organization dedicated to a healthier future through early childhood health and wellness curriculum. “HealthStart is working to create healthy communities through early health education by teaching pre-K kids the ABC’s of nutrition, exercise, wellness and body awareness. What children learn at an early age can positively influence choices they will make for the rest of their lives, which we hope will lead to healthier children, families and communities, says HealthStart executive director Robin Herskowitz. Individuals can contribute to the HealthStart vision by patronizing EcoClean any Wednesday this month.
“I’ve been going to EcoClean for years now, and just joined up with HealthStart a few months ago. It’s great to see my interests and values coming together in the community like this.”
