Groupon is the company that takes environmental issues seriously. It partners with Environmental Volunteers, a nonprofit organization which objective is to promote the understanding of the threats faced by the environment. Environmental Volunteers organize and conduct hands-on activities in nine natural-science subjects including Baylands ecology, energy and natural resources, and Nature in your Neighborhood. The goal of this hands-on science education is to build responsibility for the environment. Participating in annual 90-minute classroom programs organized by Environmental Volunteers kids learn how Native Americans treated the environment, simulate earthquakes with an electric shake table and much more. The education programs are typically followed by two-hour field trips or summer day camps where 12,000 children get hands-on experience in natural science.
