Happy Birthday Greenpeace!

seattle Today marks the 40th year that Greenpeace came together to help change the world, by putting environmental issues in front of the people with  a non violent approach to end nuclear testing. 

 

Let's celebrate the fact that there is effort being made every day to eradicate the self destructive path we were on with our planet. No longer considered tree huggers, those of us who truly care about the conditions of our planet and future of our environment can now consider ourselves the norm, an accomplishment to be proud of, to be sure.

Although we have more knowledge at our fingertips on how to help with environmental issues than ever before,  taking steps toward that goal actually need to be put in place by each of us to see the changes in our global community.

 

Why not make today the day you take a step towards a brighter future for our descendants by making a commitment to help each day, in some way...

 

GREENPEACE

I went to my first Greenpeace meeting in the early 1970s where a film of the Canadian baby seal killing was shown.  It was hard but it made me realize how hard these people worked to make things right in the world.

Hi Margaret~ I know it can be hard to view what really happens in the world! I keep it soft so folks don't turn away...

Even committing to separating trash, not wasting water, buying earth friendly products, and making a few other educated choices, can lead to a substantial gain for a cleaner planet!

Thanks for stopping by.

Best regards from Seattle,

Judi,

So much has been accomplished since Greenpeace began.  We all seem to be separating trash as a normal function of living as well as living green as much as possible.  I know that some of us are impatient to see more done, and we just have to keep the progress well marketed and in front of many more individuals.  Thanks for this thoughtful reminder.

Hi Alexandra~ I am of the opinion that we have made great strides as well. Chemicals aren't blatantly dumped into our watersheds, recycling has become of our everyday lives, as you said, we are making smarter choices and being rewarded for it by utility companies, and appliance manufacturers.... All positive steps in the right direction!

Hi Michael~ Some mandatory guidelines implemented through vote, concerning new building construction, waste, the use of renewable energy and backing off of fossil fuel consumption will help keep things looking up!

Congratulations Green Peace.  I remember as a kid seeing them on the news in dinghys keeping the trawlers away from fish... They started the wave...
