Startup Stories: Eco Falls

Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
Eco Falls started a movement with the goal of reducing waste in our local schools and educating students on how to effect positive change. Four years later, we have launched eco-friendly fundraisers nationwide and helped reduce waste by an estimated 1,000,000 plastic bottles. Moms shop on our site to purchase reusable bottles for their kids, and schools launch fundraisers using the same online platform. Everyone can benefit from Eco Falls while we sustain our planet one reusable bottle at a time!

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I was reading an article about single-use-container pollution and thought, there has to be a better way. So, I started offering schools free educational assemblies. The assemblies would take place in the school cafeteria and educate the students on how to live sustainably. The kids responded well; the rest is history!

One should look for the company’s documentation for own PC to be certain what type of storage is needed.

  20. Thanks for your article.

Though Associate Certification are a great way to get started, completing your own Bachelors starts up many doors to various occupations, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online variations of their college diplomas but normally for a greatly higher payment than the corporations that specialize in online degree programs.
