environmental education made easy

Kermit sang, "It's not easy being green." Do you agree? Or i s it possible to be kind to our planet without feeling constantly overwhelmed? 

We think it is and so does the University of California. The University partnered with Vox Media to create a series of short videos describing basic sustainability problems. The videos offer simple, guilt-free ways that we can make small changes to help. 

One video in the series is titled "Food waste is the world's dumbest problem." Check out the link for it below, along with one for Copia, an innovative food app that allow caterers and restaurants with excess food to get it to shelters and the people who need it.

Small changes can make it easy to be green. C ommunication and education play major roles in sharing ways to do so in your community. We want to help  you deliver your messages about local reuse, recycling, and reduction programs. Please give me a call or  email me !
Keep on reducing, reusing, and recycling!

An Easy Way to Be Green

In the U.S., roughly 40% of the food we produce never gets eaten. That adds up to about 365 million pounds per day. And with one in eight Americans lacking reliable access to enough affordable, nutritious food, this is a big deal. 

Dana Gunders, senior scientist at the National Resources Defense Council notes, "Of all of the challenging problems out there, reducing the amount of food we are wasting is one of the easiest."

We agree! Reducing wasted food is one of the easiest ways to go green. It takes a lot of resources (water, labor, oil, and land) to grow food, package it, keep it cold, and transport it. When you reduce wasted food, you save money, too. Plus, no one likes wasting food.

So Kermit, we disagree. In this case, it is easy to be green!
