Here's to a Green 2009 for all!
And I have a question for you, too.
Do any of you have any tips re: "Green Activism?"
I want to do more than just recycle, and avoid buying the polluting clothing, products, and etc, and not driving a car...
I was skiing this week, and the resort, Wist, still uses styrofoam products - even though they have recycling bins for glass and aluminum!!!
I was inspired to hear the story of a young man who stuck his neck out for the environment, recently. The Bush administration gave the green flag for a chunk of forest land in Utah to oil tycoons. whilst there were a group of protesters outside, this chap decided to take a chance. being this was a quick and nasty happening, no one checked his credentials. He bid on lots of land - driving the price up, and, winning some!! By the time they realized what was happening (he had no money), and had him arrested, he had sufficiently disrupted the auction - with plots of land assigned to him, for the time being!
Please listen to the blog:
I am so inspired by his activism!
I realize that if I'm going to take such action, however, I'd better get US citizenship first - or they will likely just kick me out of the country.
Anyways, you are all very avid environmentalist, I understand, and i'm looking for some tips here.
