It Adds Up

It Adds Up

I’ve always believed that as individuals we make ripples and together we make waves. Maybe it seems like a small thing to recycle a tin can but if everyone recycled their tin cans, that would really add up. In a big world it is easy to feel tiny or that our acts of kindness or greenness don’t seem to add up or matter.  I often hear comments like:

“Why does it matter if I ride my bike or bring my own bag?”

“Who really cares if I turn off my lights, I’m just one person.”

I have a million responses to these comments and questions but what I hear resonating through all comments like these are a need for an incentive, the need to see a bigger picture and sometimes even some examples. Sometimes it’s hard to see how your impact makes a difference; it’s easy to feel unsure of what you are doing and to feel a lack of motivation.

Let me help you.

Let me introduce you to One Million Acts of Green.

One Million Acts of Green Incentive and Education

Not a new website but a new website design and re-launch!  A chance for you to see the BIGGER picture and how all of our acts of green add up to making a very BIG difference! A chance to track your eco-friendly actions, tell others and encourage others and learn new ways to go green that you might not have thought about.

And yes, an incentive. An incentive to win $5,000 shopping spree to Buy Green just by completing three green acts and you’re entered into the sweepstakes (extra entries when you complete 3 additional green acts of greenness) It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s fun and green!  If you’re stumped on what three acts of green you could accomplish to enter, just check out the “Green U” for advice, tips and ideas for a jump start!

So what are you waiting for, register now? Help me make some ripples that will lead to something bigger like One Million Acts of Green!
