The econscious headquarters are powered by 100% local renewable EverGreen electricity .
What makes EverGreen so special?

By tapping solar by day and geothermal by night, this 100% renewable option doesn’t need to be backed up by dirty power such as natural gas.
By helping build new local sources, EverGreen customers are supporting the local economy, creating jobs, and promoting efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
