DeRidder, La., May 7, 2021 – Ingevity (NYSE: NGVT) employees in DeRidder, Louisiana, recently volunteered to help protect the planet by leading litter sweeps on Earth Day.
On April 22, fifteen Ingevity employees collected 50 bags of trash along with some larger debris along Crosby Road. The team looks forward to continuing these efforts in the future.
“With a great turn out and beautiful weather, the team had a successful day cleaning our community,” said DeAnna Binning, Payroll Coordinator, Ingevity.
