Stop Coal Exports

Greenpeace has put out this great video to encourage people to stop coal exports. This is American campaign but could easily be directed towards Canadians as well.  Coal is Bad for Americans,and bad for Canadians, therefore it is bad for everyone, no matter what shore they live on! Learn about this “Coal Conspiracy” who will benefit, and who takes the risks.

Sweater Day 2014 -for the environment!

This year February 6th  will be  “National Sweater Day”  supported by the World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF)

In an effort to demonstrate the power of  individual actions equalling one big statement, dozens of retailers including grocery giant Loblaw have agreed to participate by lowering their stores temperatures by 3 degrees and wearing a sweater instead.

Wearing a sweater is a symbolic way people can participate in the ongoing dialogue about energy conservation and personal consumption.

Office workers, businesses and schools alike are encouraged to  book a call from granny to be reminded about the big event.

By wearing the ugly sweater from the back of your closet you can help too.  There are prizes to be won, so spread the word and  sign up!

Take action, its easy and fun,  and you really can make a difference!
