We’re turning Earth Day 2021 into a whole week of events at Indiegogo! That’s because Earth Day is kind of a big deal around here. Know why? Because Indiegogo is your go-to hub for green innovation and technology. Since our inception, Indiegogo has been home to hundreds of campaigns that aim at saving the planet, whether they be for solar panels, plastic-free products, or alternative transport.
But recently, green campaigns have become a cornerstone of crowdfunding. In 2020, support for green campaigns grew nearly 900% as compared to the previous year. That’s incredible! Thanks to backers like you, earth-friendly tech is helping to make the world a better place.
That’s why we’re excited to bring back our popular Virtual Hangouts for a very special series taking place the entire week of Earth Day. You’ll hear from changemakers, entrepreneurs, and creators on the future of green tech, sustainable fashion, and more via live Zoom roundtables and fireside chats. Catch the details on all the sessions below!
