Environmental Sustainability: Changing the World in my Pajamas

Honestly I used to be better at changing the world in my p.j.s - spending great amounts of time writing to congressmen and signing petitions online... and I need to start doing that again, but this is what I am doing now...

I click here ... every day to help save the rain forests. But I could do more.

We need to support organizations that are working to restore the earth through protecting forests, conserving and rebuilding soils, regenerating fisheries, and protecting plant and animal diversity.

The following organizations could use our help in creating a sustainable world...

(Pick your favorites!)

Audubon

Works to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats; aka The National Audubon Society

Activists, organizers, and lawyers working on human rights, environment, and corporate/government accountability

I am also partial to giving to adoption programs because we adopted an orphan from Russia in 2007. If everyone adopted one child in place of having one biological child we would no longer have an orphan problem in the world.

Reece's Rainbow: Help's down syndrome kids get adopted

Sweet Hope The proceeds from the sale of all of the candy (super yummy!) goes directly to Baby House (orphanage) #2 in Khabarovsk, Russia.


Spreading the word is another way to change the world in my pajamas: Writing this blog is a way to get the message to readers around the world about the importance of sustainability. Sustainability is IMPORTANT. It's vital for our future survival.
