Here's something we love to see - a movement that makes a difference, a real difference to our planet. Last week, The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos launched One Million Acts of Green. Did you receive one of these 100% post-consumer waste/seed-embedded plantable business cards? Botanical PaperWorks produced them for The Hour.
What is One Million Acts of Green? The CBC website describes it best:
It’s not about overhauling your life; it’s about one act from each individual amassing to a million. It can be as simple as switching to compact fluorescent lightbulbs, starting a recycling program, or walking to work. You can do one act – or you can do all one million! It’s up to you.
Young and old, parents and kids, small towns and big cities, we want to create an exciting grassroots initiative. All you have to do is go to this website and register one act – or more. Our green calculator, designed by GreenNexxus, will determine the impact of those acts on the environment.
We're asking everyone to get involved: schools and universities, cities and communities, business, politicians, and even celebrities. George and The Hour are challenging other CBC programs to go green, including CBC News, Kids’ CBC, Steven & Chris, Living, and CBC Sports. But most of all, YOU.Together we can make an impact. Together we can make our lives, our communities, and our environment greener.
One million acts of green, one act a time.
