With 16 different sustainability-focused events to choose from nationwide, our people got in touch with their green side as they beautified bike trails, cleaned up local creeks and more. And in New Jersey, employees at City Green were joined by previous Solve for Tomorrow National Winners from Princeton High School to bring their winning STEM solution to life.
