Three weeks ago, we joined forces with WeWork to launch our first-ever #WorkGreen Challenge in honor of Earth Day. That challenge was all about people showcasing their sustainable workplace practices, from reusable coffee cups to air-purifying desktop plants. On behalf of everyone at Green Matters and our friends at WeWork, we'd like to thank you for your participation and dedication to taking action!
We hope everyone's ideas (aggregated with the #WorkGreen hashtag) continue to inspire you to make your workspace more sustainable and eco-friendly. And now, on to our winners!
The following three participants have won one-year We Memberships:
To get in the Earth Day spirit, I'm participating in the #workgreen challenge hosted by @greenmatters and @wework! I keep my workspace eco friendly by consuming only plant-based foods, using reusable cups for my decaf almond lattes as much as possible and by always using eco-friendly, green products in our home! How do you keep your workspace eco-friendly? 🌿🍃
The following five participants have won three-month WeWork Memberships:
#BillionOysterParty is a zero-waste event. We're recycling everything - and after a one-year curing process that makes sure shells are nice and clean, baby oysters (larvae) will attach to these shells and join millions of other oysters in NY Harbor #reefs #water #environment #recycle #nyc #newyorknature #newyorkcity #newyork #workgreen @earthmatterny @greenmatters @wework
Press pause on the workday and stop by #AncolieNYC this week for a delicious lunch that’s eco-friendly.

A post in honor of #EarthDay. Pictured here is one of our Houston office trashcans. It was 3D printed on Gigabot X, the pellet printer which we just closed out a successful Kickstarter campaign on yesterday. This machine prints using pelletized plastic rather than filament spools, and it's capable of using pellets made from recycled plastic. The ultimate goal is to engineer a system which can grind up and print directly from plastic trash like plastic water bottles. Or, save your failed/old 3D prints and turn them into new ones! We're planning ahead and saving ours for the day we make this possible. @greenmatters @wework #workgreen #3Dprinting #GigabotX #Kickstarter #plastic #recycling #environment Honeycomb Vase by radus on #Thingiverse thing:891147
