AMHERST - Twelve sustainability stories by businesses from across the state will come to life at New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility’s (NHBSR) Just One Thing Sustainability Slam at the LaBelle Winery on Thursday, October 15 in Amherst, New Hampshire. The evening will feature the top Just One Thing Stories, and guests will vote for the most impactful story.

NHBSR, a nonprofit membership-based organization of socially and environmentally friendly businesses, launched the Just One Thing campaign to bring together businesses from across New Hampshire to share ideas regarding sustainability and recognize businesses for their environmental, community, and workplace initiatives.

At the Sustainability Slam, guests will hear twelve winning stories, determined by a panel of sustainability experts, each in 90 seconds or less, and select the overall best stories using a polling app on their phones. Finalists were selected by a panel of experts consisting of Lisa Drake, Director of Sustainability Innovation at Stonyfield Farm, Matt Gardner, Principal of Sustainserv and Fiona Wilson, Co-Director for the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise at the UNH Paul College of Business and Economics. Four finalists were chosen from each category, with two large companies, and two small companies or organizations in each category.
