Environmental Stewards

Environmental stewardship is at the heart of Ecovative’s work and culture. As we work to reduce industry’s impact on the planet, we mark each Earth Day by picking up litter around our home of Green Island, New York. Sustainability clubs, engagement with local conservation groups, paid volunteer days, and more are examples of our commitment to protecting Spaceship Earth.
