POET Gives Back: Earth Day 2021

Team members across POET’s footprint were encouraged to celebrate Earth Day through community cleanups, recycling drives or other acts of environmental stewardship. Team members participated in litter clean ups in Sioux Falls, Ashton, Corning, Hanlontown, Mitchell, Leipsic, Lake Crystal, Emmetsburg, Hudson, Groton and North Manchester. POET Biorefining – Caro planted one tree for every team member, team members in Hanlontown started an on-site community garden and POET Biorefining – Hudson visited Alcester-Hudson Elementary to speak with students about Earth Day and biofuels and to color Earth Day pictures.

“At POET, we strive to live every day like it’s Earth Day. We live out our mission to be good stewards of the Earth in everything we do, whether it’s providing plant-based biofuel that cleans the air in our nation’s cities or growing our suite of green consumer products.”
