Recap: Zappos 3rd Annual Earth Day Party

On April 24th, Zappos hosted its 3rd Annual Earth Day Party at our new LEED-Gold* downtown Las Vegas campus! The plaza courtyard was packed with employees, vendors, and friends – this year’s event was leaps and bounds larger than the two previous year’s events.

Zappos LEAF teamed up with Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day this year to bring our kids to our Earth Day Party. The LEAF team gave a presentation about recycling, solar energy and water conservation to more than 100 kids! The kids already know so much about the importance of protecting our earth’s resources – it’s inspiring!

The LEAF team raffled two awesome beach cruisers for Zappos employees who participated in the event. Employees could earn extra raffle tickets for bringing used cell phones and batteries for proper recycling.  Needless to say, we collected a whole bunch of cell phones and batteries!

It is evident by the excitement around this event that Zappos employees really care about the environment and actively seek out ways to reduce their impacts. Though we celebrate Earth Day just one day a year, we really try to remind our employees and friends that it is important to celebrate every day with daily acts of “greenness”. The Zappos LEAF team is thankful to have such great support from the company and employees. You guys rock!

The Zappos 2nd Annual Earth Day Party

On April 24th, Zappos hosted its second annual Earth Day Event in our Henderson HQ! We had 17 new and returning vendors join the Zappos LEAF Team in creating an awesome event to highlight how easy it is to go green.

Over 450 Zapponians hung out with us, enjoyed the sunshine, and learned about sustainable initiatives. Similar to last year, our metric for success is to teach each Zapponian at least one new eco-habit that makes a difference. Whether it is to use a reusable shopping bag or to buy brands that utilize recycled materials, every little habit or lifestyle change helps keep our planet a wonderful place to live.

We had all sorts of educational activities and giveaways for our employees. Our favorite: Repurpose America brought a giant earth mural painted by a local artist and hundreds of Zapponians used paint pens to leave messages of support for the planet by signing the canvas. The mural will be hung up inside the new downtown Zappos campus for all to see.

Special thanks to all of our friends who participated this year. Giant high fives to Zappos’ own DJ Ultra for bringing the beats and to our awesome Bistro team for grilling corn on the cob. We’ll see you next year at our 3rd Earth Day party in downtown Vegas!

As Las Vegas residents, a lot of us Zapponians are huge fans of The Cosmoplitan because of its cool vibe and luxe gathering spaces like the Chandelier Bar and the Boulevard Pool. So it’s really exciting for us to partner with The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas to experiment with a pop-up store/art installation concept inside its P3 Studio—a space normally reserved for funky art and performance artists.

From now until October 31st, Zappos is taking over the P3 Studio space with a gallery-like exhibit showcasing some of our categories in clothing, shoes and accessories. From fashion to running to outdoor, our talented and creative designers worked very hard to tell an artistic story through the many products Zappos.com offers.

If you’re in Vegas, make sure to stop by and check out our space, redeem your Zappos Gift Card or simply shop the iPad® kiosk located inside the studio!

P.S. While you’re at it, there are tons of awesome restaurants located on the same floor as the studio including a certain “secret” pizza joint. If you don’t know what/where that is…just ask!
