GreenPeace’s newest feature, reminding us with bloody humor that we are paying the corporations to do what they do… which in this case is rainforest destruction.

Resourcefulness is certainly a virtue. Buying stuff you don’t need is not. Put the two together and what do you get? A camera made of beer cans!

Ridiculous bicycle video of the week. This one is a compilation of photos, many of which I had never seen before, and a few of which made me laugh out loud here in the Mexican internet cafe.

One Lucky Cyclist!

Happy WORLD WATER DAY everybody! Today is a good excuse to take five minutes and educate yourself on the bottled water hoopla.

If not on World Water Day, then when? Thanks to Rainforest Action Network for posting this and Annie Leonard for making it.

Congratulations to Ride for the Trees Beneficiary for Earning Charity Navigator’s Highest 4-star Ranking!!

22 02 2010

I am pleased to quote the email I recently received from World Land Trust-US, the official Ride for the Trees beneficiary:

“We have earned Charity Navigator‘s coveted 4 STAR RATING for being one of the most efficient conservation nonprofits in the US. World Land Trust-US is proud to be recognized for our effectiveness in directing your support to real and lasting conservation actions.”

We’re owning this. As you probably know we have collectively pledged and raised about $23,000 to support forest conservation in Paraguay! The fundraising goal is $100,000.  With your help awareness is still spreading, and friends of friends of friends have donated. As deforestation continues (not just the 2,000 trees per minute you hear about in the Amazon, but also on scattered plots, little-by-little, like in the photo above) supporters continue to donate, little-by-little. We are counteracting the loss as much as possible, helping to protect indigenous communties’ habitats against illegal destruction. I am incredibly thankful to each and every one of you for your support.

I know donating is not a possibility for everybody right now and if you cannot donate I completely understand. For those wish to contribute here is the link:

Why can’t I stop laughing at this?
