Thank You for Another Successful Bay Day!

Thank You for Another Successful Bay Day!

Now that our 6th annual Bay Day is officially over, we want to thank you all for making it such a success! From walking the trail, sharing the challenge with your friends and families, tagging us in your posts on Instagram, and logging your miles, you all found unique and inspiring ways to celebrate San Francisco Bay.

This year we had 1,077 people who walked, biked, hiked, kayaked, and explored San Francisco Bay as part of the Bay Day Trail Challenge. We had participants from every county of the Bay join us, covering 19,774 miles of trail in total and completing 428 activities. We hope that in participating in this year’s Bay Day, you were able to connect with the Bay around you.

While Bay Day is over, Save The Bay’s important work continues. To keep up with us and continue to support our mission, visit our website, make a donation, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Thank you again for joining us for Bay Day 2021 – we can’t wait to see you next year!

Bank of America: A Future of Sustainability

Save the Bay is once again proud to partner with our valued supporter Bank of America as a top-tier Bay Day sponsor for the second year in a row. Visit our 2020 blog post to check out Bank of America’s work with us in past years.

Bank of America has long been committed to environmental improvement and sustainability, having raised over $200 billion for sustainable causes by implementing green business initiatives, individual employee programs, and close collaboration with organizations like Save the Bay.

Now, they’re building on this work into the future: Bank of America recently pledged $1 trillion for sustainable development by 2030 as part of their Environmental Business Initiative. This pledge will help accelerate the global transition towards a low-carbon, sustainable economy. They have also made a company commitment of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions before 2050. Greenhouse gas emissions and the particulate matter that accompany them directly harms the Bay by polluting its air and water, and minimizing these emissions are key to the Bay’s health. To that, Bank of America’s new environmental initiatives will not only create a global sustainable shift but also directly protect the Bay and its communities for years to come.

Bank of America is not just focused on change at a corporate level, but at an employee level as well. Over the last 10 years, their My Environment Employee Program has encouraged over 24,000 employees in 32 countries to commit to sustainability. The program seeks to connect employees across the globe who share a passion for environmentalism, and empowers them by providing opportunities such as organizing beach clean ups, recycling campaigns, and sustainability webinars.

Finally, Bank of America has also gone above and beyond to support Save the Bay specifically through grants that contribute to community greening efforts and environmental education. They have also closely supported our Habitat Restoration Team, with employees making special trips to our restoration sites such as the Palo Alto Baylands, touring our native plant nursery, and restoring our site at the MLK shoreline through planting native plants and collecting invasive weeds and trash.

On both a corporate and employee level, Bank of America is dedicated to a future of sustainability, ensuring that places like San Francisco Bay can thrive and grow. To learn more about Bank of America’s environmental initiatives, visit
