Today’s tip is all about giving you some great ways to get involved in protecting our planet. We hope that you’ve been enjoying and trying out a few of our #30days2green tips! Today’s tip is one of the biggest!
Sowing seeds of love for the earth require your voice and your action. We need to stand up for the earth and her creatures before it’s too late!
Incorporating the previous #30days2green tips will make a difference in your world, but Green Tip #30 can create a positive ripple effect for the whole world!
Here are 5 ways to get involved in protecting the planet:
1. Contact Your Representatives
Contact your local officials to see what your city, county and state are doing to protect the environment and what needs to be addressed.
Get involved by attending meetings, writing letters and making your vote count.
2. Sign a Petition
One of the most effective ways to use your voice for positive change is to sign petitions on behalf of environmental issues that matter most to you. Perhaps you are passionate about the forests, or the oceans, or clean air, or animal extinction, or GMO-free food, or ALL of the above.
The more voices that stand together, the more powerful they can be!
3. Join Earth-Friendly Online Communities
There are several earth-friendly online communities that provide great information and tips on sustainability and living green along with current environmental news.
4. Support Earth-Friendly Organizations
There are so many nonprofits out there that are passionate about protecting the planet (too many to mention). Some are good at what they do and others are not. Decide on the cause you want to support and go to CharityNavigator.org or CharityWatch.org to see which organizations are the best.
Here are some of my favorites:
• My tree planting partners, of course! Earth Day Network, Project GreenHands and Trees for the Future
• Conservation International
• World Wildlife Fund
• Friends of the Earth
• Pachamama Alliance
5. Plant a Tree Pose
Get involved with protecting the planet by helping to rebuild the forests–the lungs of our earth. There are just a few weeks left to join the Plant a Tree Pose Movement!
Here’s all you need to do…
Imagine millions of more trees in the world. Now, picture you being part of an Earth Day Movement to make this happen.
It’s as easy as one-two-tree! All you have to do is register for the movement, donate $1, and upload a photo of yourself doing the Tree Pose. You plant a Tree Pose and we’ll plant a tree!
Your $1 will go to one of three internationally respected tree-planting nonprofits of your choice and your photo will be used to create a Towering Tree Photomosaic® by world-renowned artist, Robert Silvers. This giant Photomosaic® will be revealed as a special art exhibit in New York City on Earth Day 2016.
1 Tree Pose + 1 dollar = 1 tree planted. JOIN NOW!
