Groupon has partnered with Edward Norton’s Crowd Rise to launch the Groupon Challenge. The campaign that raises the most money in donations through Crowd Rise and until May 15 will receive $25,000 from Groupon. The company has also launched Groupon Grassroots which is kicking off 50 environmental campaigns with a $1,000 dollar grant for each effort.

Comcast held its 11th annual Comcast Cares Day last Saturday. 70,000 Comcast employees, families, and friends volunteered at hundreds of project sites across the country. Since the first Comcast Cares Day, 360,000 volunteers have worked two million hours at 3,500 project sites in local communities.

Climate Counts and E. Plus Green have teamed up on Earth Day to promote consumer empowerment. The new initiative will educate consumers on what corporations are doing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and how consumers can make decisions that reduce costs and environmental impact.
