State Farm is looking for people to join its Cause An Effect campaign, a program that brings $25,000 to communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Through March 20th, consumers can visit State Farm’s Facebook page to submit a cause to be considered for one of 40 grants. State Farm’s Youth Advisory Board of 30 high school and university students will review the Cause submissions and help State Farm select the finalists. Cause An Effect is a new, youth-led crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that relies on local, non-profit organizations to create solutions to community issues identified by consumers.

EarthColor has partnered with Two Sides, a nonprofit, to promote the responsible production, use, and sustainability of print and paper. EarthColor, a provider of print and digital communications, made the move to underline the company’s commitment to green manufacturing and product standards. EarthColor will be a sitting member on the Two Sides Sustainability committee. Two Sides has more than 1,000 members in 12 countries that span the entire print and paper supply chain.
