Earth Day Special - WYCD #13 - Join Team Earth
WhatYou Can Do #13 - Join Team Earth
Happy Earth Day! I can't think of a better day to introduce to you #13 in the "What You Can Do" series to help the world's habitats. Join Team Earth.
Conservation International has launched a groundbreaking opportunity, a tool designed to catalyze personal and collective action via the connective power of the web. It's called Team Earth.
Team Earth is about doing more and doing less.
Doing more is about all of us doing more of a few simple things. Things like planting more trees, using more energy-effecient light bulbs, and protecting more acres of forests, which help fight climate change.
Doing less together can help the planet too. Doing less is about using less paper, driving less, and using less energy by doing simple things like turning down your thermostat.
Team Earth is everyone, and everyone is made up of all of us. Together, we can do enough small things to help make our shared planet a better place. Check it out, and join today. Happy Earth Day.
I'm a Master Naturalist and an outdoor enthusiast -- mostly kayaking, and I live on a Peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay. I'm the author of The Nature Fan, Nature Fan Activists, Green Earth Almanac, and Amanda's Geographic.
