STO & EcoRise: 1 Year of Teamwork and Sustainability

A sustainable future is a bright future—and EcoRise is on a mission to bring that message to students everywhere.

EcoRise is a Texas-based nonprofit which empowers teachers across the country to improve environmental literacy among students of all ages. Through their one-of-a-kind curriculum that focuses on sustainable design and social entrepreneurship, the organization aims to inspire the next generation of green leaders.

Last summer, STO’s group of EcoLeaders partnered with EcoRise, hoping to impact a little over a thousand students during the school year. One year since joining forces, STO has achieved almost triple that original goal by helping EcoRise bring their message to 11 schools, facilitating the training of 32 teachers and reaching nearly 3,000 students across Texas, Boston, and NYC!

In addition to participating in plenty of volunteer days, planning advisory council events, and hosting a few teacher training workshops, STO has sponsored several student projects through EcoRise’s Student Innovation Fund. The hands-on program challenges students to notice their surroundings and identify what can be improved within their space. Then, they’re encouraged to think outside of the box and come up with their own sustainable solutions.

From greenhouse renovations and harvestable gardens to efficient LED light tubes and outdoor classrooms, STO has helped fund and implement some extremely creative student projects that make a real impact. The outdoor classroom, for instance, eliminates the use of projectors, lights, computers, and phones, significantly reducing the amount of energy consumed per day. The students researched other green schools and recognized this as an opportunity to improve the school’s overall culture and increase learning productivity. Not to mention, spending time outdoors has such a positive effect on mental and emotional wellbeing.

Thanks to this partnership with EcoRise, STO has been able to truly make an impact in the communities where we live and work. The EcoLeaders are excited to build on these relationships and keep the momentum going next year!

“The NYC Department of Education is thrilled at the opportunity that EcoRise and Structure Tone have created for NYC educators and students to increase their knowledge, skills, and leadership in sustainability. Through this invaluable partnership with EcoRise, we are able to make meaningful strides towards our goal of providing schools with resources that truly bring sustainability to life for students.” – Meredith McDermott, Director of Sustainability, NYC Department of Education

Structure Tone’s annual golf classic to support kids with cerebral palsy brings together Dublin’s construction community to play golf and raise money annually for a selected child. The money raised goes towards treating their condition and making it possible to travel to the Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri for a life-changing surgery called “selective dorsal rhizotomy,” or SDR. Each year 32 teams compete, with more clients, consultants and employees supporting the post-golf evening event, including a live auction hosted by Structure Tone’s Richard Hemming. To date, the golf classic has raised over €200,000, all of which has gone directly to each child’s family to help fund their SDR quest.
