Company Summary

Project Dirt is currently a social network connecting environmental projects. The projects can connect, collaborate, share good practice and promote themselves. Companies/organisations support the projects (through offering volunteering, grant funding, equipment etc) and for a fee, can set up their own networks. Due to client demand, in 2014 we will expand the Project Dirt focus from just "green" projects to also include "social" projects too.
