Thank you Volunteers for joining The Great Global Cleanup!
To celebrate Earth Day this year, WX Brands and Our Daily Wines are proudly supporting EARTHDAY.ORG in their mission to better the environment. EARTHDAY.ORG is the original and foremost Earth Day organization, founded in 1970 and working internationally since 1995. Today, EARTHDAY.ORG works in 140 countries through a network of 36 million cleanup volunteers.
WX can do even more to support their cause by participating in The Great Global Cleanup, where we can make a difference by picking up litter on Earth Day, throughout the month of April, and beyond. Clean up waste on your own or through a locally organized event and register the volume collected to increase WX’s impact (and for a chance to win prizes!)
- Use VTO hours on Earth Day (Thurs, 4/22) to clean up in your area. You can do this by yourself or though a locally organized clean up initiative.
- Follow the Great Global Cleanup Safety Checklist before you begin.
- Throughout April, try to increase your impact by picking up litter on your daily walks or nature outings.
- Log collection volumes through this portal as you go or e-mail info to Sam or Megan.
- Wear your ODW T-shirt and pick up trash in style, take selfies and send them our way!
- Join us for a special recognition meeting on April 28th to see our overall impact, share stories, and win prizes for most trash collected throughout the month.

A message from Peter Byck, President & CEO:
I encourage WX employees to safely participate in our cleanup initiative to help beautify the places where we live and work. This Earth Day (April 22nd, 2021), please join me in dedicating time to improve our environment and appreciate our planet. Whether it’s a park, trail, or neighborhood, please help support The Great Global Cleanup by picking up litter in a place that is meaningful to you.
I know we can make a significant impact as an organization and I can’t wait to see the end result from our team across the country and globe!
-Peter Byck, President & CEO
On Earth Day in 2019, WX employees spent the afternoon giving back by helping plant new greenery at McInnis Park with Marin County Parks.
So, roll up your sleeves, grab your family and friends and sign up for the Great Global Cleanup this Earth Day. Your participation will make all the difference!
