Impact: Environmental Protection

Many of our campaigns involve protecting the environment, from clean energy to recycling to preserving the rainforests and coral reefs. International Rivers hired Ripple to amplify their campaign against Home Depot at their annual shareholder meeting in Atlanta, for example. We generated a front page story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution about the company’s role in saving Southern Chile’s pristine Patagonia Rivers. Due to our strategic media campaign, Home Depot responded immediately and publicly agreed to move forward on this issue. Read more examples below.
