Have you checked out the Do The Green Thing website? I was tipped off the other day through WordPress’s Tagsurfer and decide to check it out for myself. What a great idea, encourage a community of people to make small changes to help out the environment. In their own words:
Green Thing is a community that’s here to help as many people as possible in as many countries as possible to do the Green Thing. A community of Green Things across the world will not only make a sizeable CO2 saving, it will encourage governments and businesses to do the Green Thing too.
To help achieve all of that, Green Thing is a number of things.
Green Thing is an easy thing. Because lots of small things can add up to more than a few big things, Green Thing suggests one easy thing a month to tempt as many people as possible to do it. Green Thing is also free which makes it easier to be part of.
Green Thing is a creative thing. Because entertainment is very inspiring and lectures a bit less so, the monthly Green Things are suggested with brilliant content from brilliant writers, musicians, designers, directors and artists – pro and am, young and old.
Green Thing is a not-for-profit thing. Because people are cynical about commercial or political agendas, Green Thing is an independent, not-for-profit thing powered by grants from foundations and individual contributions.
And so on, go here www.dothegreenthing.com to check out the rest… I love the message; it’s reasonable, not too preachy, and finally an easy approach to making a difference in the world. Check it out and see if you care to Do The Green Thing too.
