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.
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.
It was startling to realize how much waste we all produce!!! Cool video and glad I caught it. I'm going to share this with my friends!
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.
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!
INFORM is a great organization that makes short films that are viewed thousands of times on the internet. These films are also used to teach school children. We all know how important it is to educate school children because they bring the newly acquired knowledge home to their parents.
Assisted INFORM with planning and executing their Generation INformed cocktail benefit which was a tremendous sucesss due to all the effort by staff and volunteers.
