HAPPY EARTH DAY ON APRIL 22!
Keep doing every little thing you can to protect and heal Gaia the Living Planet!
DAVID SUZUKI POSTED AN EARTH DAY SPECIAL WITH SOME GREAT IDEAS FOR THINGS WE CAN DO FOR THE EARTH
"Ever wonder how your tiny carbon footprint really impacts the big picture of climate change? Though you might feel like your lifestyle is insignificant compared to things like oil extraction or vehicle emissions, the choices we make in our day-to-day life — how we get around, what we eat, how we live — play a major role in slowing climate change."
DAVID SUZUKI asks that if you love the environment, vote on May 2!
"On May 2, your vote will shape how Canada addresses its growing environmental challenges. Vote for a candidate who is committed to protecting the environment because a healthy environment is the basis of a strong economy. Your ballot will encourage our leaders to act in the short term, and develop a vision for the long term, to protect the air we breathe, water we drink, and all of nature.
Voter turnout in the last federal election was the lowest in history – let’s turn those lows into historic highs.
If you love the environment, pledge today to vote on May 2 and bring three other people to the polls with you."
Playlist for the Planet
30 itunes that support environmental stewardship.
Green your workplace
"Save cash, time, and the planet when you go green at work. We offer all the tips and tools you need. Remember, people love companies with an eco-conscience, and so does Mother Earth."
Reduce your carbon footprint
"Simple changes in our everyday lives can help slow climate change — including reducing our energy consumption, choosing to travel sustainably, and being conscious of what we purchase."
Eat for a healthy planet
"There are many food choices you can make to help the planet. Here are a few actions you can take."
Call for leadership
"Political leaders earn their positions from votes. They care about public opinion and keep close tabs on issues constituents raise in letters, meetings, phone calls and the editorial pages of local papers. Your voice matters."
Join the Book Club
"Enjoy a good read? Want to join a thought-provoking discussion about a great book? How about an opportunity to share ideas with like-minded people who want to create a more sustainable future?
The David Suzuki Foundation Book Club is a virtual meeting place for people who love books that inspire action. "
Be a community leader
"We're looking for citizen leaders across our country to help David Suzuki protect nature right where they live — in their homes, workplaces and communities. Because we're all in this together, and planet Earth is the only home we've got. "
Here's to a cleaner, healthier Canada and world, our home and the future for our children.
