Every April 22, students, politicians, community and business leaders, and environmentalists around the globe celebrate Earth Day as a time to diversify the environmental movement, educate communities and promote environmental action worldwide.
This year marks Earth Day’s 50th anniversary and, at a time when countries around the world face another common challenge, the importance of working together is more pressing than ever.
That’s why NetSuite is happy to help and celebrate so many of its environmentally-conscious customers as they continue their work supporting the cause. Here are some of the customers doing their part, not only this month with special Earth Day promotions, but every day with ongoing initiatives:

Toad&Co., an environmentally and socially conscious clothing retailer, is teaming up with The Conservation Alliance and donating 10% of all purchases on Earth Day to the organization when customers use the code ALLIANCE. This is just one part of the company’s commitment. It is part of 1% for The Planet and donates 1% of dress sales to 1% FTP-approved nonprofits annually, it uses sustainable and recycled materials, partners with The Renewal Workshop to renew damaged, excess or returned Toad&Co clothing to minimize clothing in landfills and offers the option for reusable shipping packaging.
