A_Billion_Acts_of_Green

The Earth Day Network hopes to present A Billion Acts of Green® before the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012. The concept is simple -- Get individuals and organisations to pledge acts that help reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability. An act can be a simple gesture, such as washing laundry in cold water, or immense, like picking up a million pounds of trash. Individuals and organisations can pledge 'acts of green' at any time, and as often as they want.

Earth Day is a great time to crowd-source acts of green within our community. Collectively, these acts will not only have an impact on global carbon emissions, but will also demonstrate the power of small every-day individual acts of green.
