Then why not apply to One Green Planet’s Internship Program? We are a fast-growing media start-up focused on conscious living with a passionate and engaged audience and are looking for talented interns to join our team!
As the largest (and fastest growing) conscious lifestyle platform on the Internet, One Green Planet proudly creates viral and thought-provoking content designed to inspire millions of monthly visitors to take action for the environment, animals, and people alike. We’re all about throwing out preconceived notions and labels that define what it means to be “green” and showing people how they can change the world by taking small actions (like eating vegan donuts).
