As one of the leading environmental advocacy nonprofits, the Environmental Defense Fund has offices all around the country. Did you know one of them is right here in Northwest Arkansas? EDF in Bentonville, Arkansas is located near the Walmart national headquarters and works to influence America’s retailers and consumer goods companies to implement sustainable business practices. If you would like to know more about EDF’s mission, consider joining them for a Community Happy Hour at Black Apple Crossing on Thursday, August 13th from 6-8 PM. Members of the EDF team will gather to introduce the Bentonville office, share their expert work, and connect with the community. From reducing food and plastic waste, to making household products free of toxic chemicals, Arkansans like you can play a critical role in challenging industry standards to create a safer, healthier world for all. We want to hear your thoughts on the environmental issues you care about the most. Join us as we discuss the exciting future of sustainability! EDF will be providing free drinks on a limited basis.
