The Giant Steps Foundation works with those it supports to help minimize their impact on our fragile earth.
By offering greening grants for special events, the foundation helps organizations offer their members and constituents organic menus, including organic meat, poultry, and dairy products that are not only healthier but more humane.
Additionally, greening grants enable the use of recycled paper and plant-based inks as well as the purchase of carbon-offsets to help achieve a climate-neutral event.
