Cascade Falls Clean-Up

Cascade Falls Clean-Up

We believe great companies do good together. So on Wednesday the 26th, we all left the Flowfold workshop at lunchtime and hopped over to Cascade Falls (a park right down the street from us) to clean up. The park has a small loop with a decent sized waterfall where Cascade Brook empties. We commonly visit to test out new prototypes and shoot product photos. Ultimate goal: Think global, act local. We want to build a company culture that includes community service as a pre-requisite for success. And to us, there is no better place to start than in our own backyard. Although Cascade Falls is a small park, we noticed a significant amount of garbage had built up throughout the trails. Discarded styrofoam cups, beer cans, and even bigger items like tires littered the ground. Since it is entirely maintained by volunteers, the park was overdue for some love. We arrived at the park around 2 or 3 PM, put on some gloves, and got to work! Some of us took to the higher ground near the crest of the falls, while others explored the lower levels of the park looking for things that had floated downstream.

Six bags of garbage and one monstrous tire later, we emerged dirty and happy with our tiny deed. The takeaway: Cleaning a park right down the street from us is just the start. We set out with a small objective and completed it, which only stoked the flame to do more. Moving forward, we are committed to building service into our main purpose as a business. We'll keep you posted on our next clean up!
