My experience with INFORM has been incredible. The people are absolutely amazing and their goals and general mission really set them apart from other environmental groups/non-profits.

Encourage the general public to be more aware of how little steps can really make a large impact especially when it comes to the environment.

I assisted at the Generation Informed Event and it was absolutely amazing. The turnout was phenomenal and the event was so fun, as well as informative. Their mission is unique and their videos are a must-see. I'd be happy to do more work with Inform.

I was invited by a friend who was volunteering at the time for Inform to attend a fundraiser. It not only was a total blast, but I learned a lot about environmental issues and what we can do in our everyday actions to help. I really believe Inform is a valuable organization that is committed to getting the word out about important environmental issues.

I heard about Inform through some friends so when I heard about this film I went into it with an open mind. I was impressed with the quality of the piece, and it really got me thinking about my footprint on the world, in terms of resources I use. Thanks so much for putting together an interesting, useful, and dare i say it, INFORMative documentary. Cheers!

Although I have just started working with INFORM, it has been a very rewarding experience so far. I work full-time in the non-profit field and I have been seeking a volunteer opportunity that will allow me to put my professional skills into action with a cause that I truly care about. The team at INFORM is very welcoming and eager to work with me so I can help them furhter their mission, and it is very refreshing to find a volunteer job that encourages me to put my creative talents to good use in my free time. I am very excited to continue my work with INFORM and I plan to stay involved and contribute however I can.

My experience working at INFORM was very constructive and eye-opening - by being exposed to the work that INFORM does, a whole new world was opened to me,raising my awareness about the environment, and many other connected issues, including life-cycle analysis, and other fascinating concepts and ideas including environmentally preferable purchasing and producer responsibility.

Inform, Inc make short, high quality, educational videos on the adverse effects that our consumer driven lifestyle can have on the environment. The utility of these videos is that they can be used in a wide range of settings, from film festivals to classrooms.

The Secret Life series is a great idea, as is the idea that INFORM position itself as a mouthpiece for environmental issues. Of course there are many orgs working on environmental issues. It makes sense to me to have one focus on communications in particular as this is an area where non-profits frequently have trouble. In pursuing this goal, INFORM has done a good job of working with other orgs in the realm, another good thing. INFORM shows steady progress with its messaging.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the videos I worked on. These did well on the fest circuit so it's clear to me that INFORM is not content, as many orgs are, to simply finish a video and do little to get it out there. INFORM is working to live up to its name.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire someone full time with solid contacts in television and experience with web promotion. Have one person only to oversee the actual production and to maintain this part of the vision.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The basic ideas and research that went into the videos were solid. The videos themselves are simple and list concrete actions consumers can take to be more environmentally responsible.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

was energetic and enthused about the project at hand. Volunteers did a lot of the research and it was well done.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create a tv series that would also be available on the web. The Secret Life series would be invaluable to consumers looking to understand the environmental impact of their purchases on a product by product basis. Simple and clear.

Ways to make it better...

The creative process were streamlined, with fewer cooks in the mix. The integration of messaging across different media has to be better coordinated. A higher concept less documentary approach would improve the videos, conveying more info via the web.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They have to make work that goes on television, goes viral on the web, or both. For this, they will have to raise money for production, hire a solid production team, and create work that is solid and consistent.

One thing I'd also say is that...

INFORM is on the right track. The econ crunch has hurt. I'd hope other environmental orgs would see fit to partner with them to create communications that will reach a wide audience and convey these essential messages.

I am very impressed by the work of INFORM,inc. They have provided consumers with the backstory of products in a way that is engaging and fascinating yet non-partisan. You make up your own mind after viewing their objective, well-investigated stories about everyday products. The website is compelling...it gives everyone an entry point to take action for the environment and to become literate about environmental issues. The staff is young, earnest and involved...full of energy and enthusiasm for their work and their team. The director is dedicated and energetic...completely committed to the work of telling the truth about the hidden lives of products and to raising awareness. It is a great organization!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

school settings and with teachers during professional development. The wonderful films about the 'secret life' of products gives teachers easy entry into environmental issues with accessible curriculum on the website.
