The e Pack spotlights organizations & initiatives making a difference
Alot of us have a hard time keeping up with organizations and initiatives that are advancing the social good. The e Pack makes it easier.
I met the impressive founder and director of The e Pack (the “e” stands for enlightenment and Earth), Alejandra Torres of Venezuela, two weeks ago at Sustainatopia in Miami.
The e Pack is a Web portal that promotes organizations and individuals who are helping to improve our world from the inside out. It offers information and resources that “help people engage take action for a more sustainable, peaceful world,” she says.
Importantly, the site lets you create a list of My Contributions outlining the actions that you’ve taken, such as attending an event, volunteering or signing a petition.

Some of the spotlighted organizations on the site include Ashoka, The Story of Stuff, Carrotmob, the Global Oneness Project, Repower America, Cooler Planet, Green Energy, Suzlon, Green Exchange and Green Jobs — some of which I’ll bet you’re not familiar with. There’s a lot here beneath the surface.
Alejandra says she’s looking for other organizations in the areas of sustainability and corporate social responsibililty to get involved.

The work being done here is very important. We support sustainability with proper eWaste disposal by Upcycling (donating) used electronics. We also transform eWaste into funding for charities. You can see how it works at http://www.causesinternational.com.
