Zappos Continues Support of Adopt a Highway

Zappos is excited to continue its commitment to cleaner highways by renewing its partnership with Adopt A Highway for the ninth year.  When Zappos moved to Las Vegas in 2005, we were only able to sponsor three miles of highway. But every year since then, we’ve been able to adopt more miles with Adopt a Highway. Now in 2013, Zappos sponsors 158 miles of highway in the Las Vegas valley and we’re on the waiting list for 20 more miles! We are excited to say we’re the second largest sponsor of highway cleanup in the nation!

Adopt a Highway crews clean the right shoulders of these sponsored highways up to two times a month. In 2012, 9,300 bags of garbage were collected along the roadsides, equaling roughly 40 tons of waste. We don’t even want to imagine how things would be without this amazing program! Needless to say, we’re proud to continue our support of keeping Nevada’s highways clean.

I just drove to and from Las Vegas today and I was blown away by the huge area that the Zappos team sponsors on the freeway! I couldn't believe how many miles that your company maintains. Thank you! What a wonderful entrance to the city, along with the gorgeous rock gardens and amazing statuary. You do Las Vegas proud. The roadsides are pristine and the art work enhances the squeeky clean roads.

I loved the signs I saw all around Las Vegas when I visited the corporate headquarters. Reading Tony Hsieh's book has changed my life in so many ways.
