Northeast Wisconsin Makes Cool Choices


Northeast Wisconsin Businesses & Residents: Increase Your Sustainability Efforts

In fall 2018, Cool Choices will launch a FREE regional employee engagement program in Northeast Wisconsin. Area businesses can participate for FREE, thanks to a grant from the McKnight Foundation. By participating, businesses can facilitate teamwork while getting employees excited about reducing waste – which means more engaged employees, increased productivity and lower operating costs!


What is Cool Choices?

Cool Choices is a non-profit organization that provides customizable corporate sustainability programs that engage employees and accelerate corporate efforts to cut energy costs, reduce waste, and save money. This community-scale program is an opportunity to celebrate the advantages of sustainable practices across the region.

Cool Choices has worked with businesses and communities in NE Wisconsin since 2011. We are thrilled to continue to help businesses and individuals make sustainable choices in this region through the Cool Choices NE Wisconsin program this fall.


The Cool Choices Employee Engagement Platform

We offer a fun, easy, and social employee engagement program that inspires employees to adopt sustainable practices at home and at work. Participation takes just a few minutes a day, and it builds a buzz about sustainability at your organization. That buzz will increase employee pride and lead to innovation that reduces operating costs.
