The Just One Thing (JOT) campaign shares simple stories of sustainability impact on the environment, our communities, or our workplaces to inspire more businesses and organizations to act. JOT Finalists, selected by a panel of independent judges, are featured at our Just One Thing Sustainability Slam, where they take to the stage to bring their stories to life in creative, high-energy, 90-second presentations.
