It also comes with the privilege of joining a larger network of businesses committed to ensuring that profit is not made at the... Continue Reading →

Peas Be With You

You may not think of books and compost as the most obvious friends, but when it comes to Lulu and CompostNow, we have a lot more in common than you’d first guess. Our organizations are passionate about sustainability, building community, and always looking for reasons to play in the dirt!

Lulu has a Can-Do Attitude

Join Team Lulu on a tour of the Sonoco Reclamation Center to celebrate Earth Month and expand our knowledge of the waste stream! The Sonoco Reclamation Center in Raleigh, NC processes around 350 tons per day in two 10-hour shifts, with 4 hours for cleaning.

Habitat for Humanity

On a very windy, slightly rainy, but mostly sunny Friday in March, I joined a baker's dozen-strong group of adventurous Lulus who took advantage of their company volunteer hours to work on a Habitat for Humanity job site in Raleigh, NC. We painted walls, planted shrubs and trees, shingled a roof, put up wood framing, [I] accidentally ripped our [my] jeans, sowed grass seed, caulked bathrooms, and moved a whole... Continue Reading →

Lulu Leads Teen Writing Workshop

At Lulu, we believe everyone has a story to share. In the words of the great Backstreet Boys, it doesn't matter who you are, where you're from, what you did, as long as you Lulu. Or, something like that. Fellow Lulu employee, Carra, and I took this mantra to the LGBT Center of Raleigh for... Continue Reading →

Lulu at the Garden

It was a bright and cloudless, summer day the morning of July 12th. Some would describe it as "roasty toasty" or "too hot too move." Nevertheless, a few Lulu team members and myself made our way to the Alliance Medical Ministry garden. We had our hats, gloves, water bottles, and plenty of sunscreen prepared for...

Lulu Builds Homes and Hope

Habitat is truly a great organization. They don’t just provide affordable housing to first-time homebuyers; they also prepare these homebuyers to be successful in their new homes and in life.
