In New York there are Six Nations Against Fracking – Documentary

Please click-through and watch the video on Vimeo!

Be mindful of the actions you partake in and if those actions help to continue life, or destroy it.

2 years after this film was made, fracking is still an issue. Do you think we will ever open our eyes and begin to make vital changes? Or is the future too far away to plan for…

Wildlife Entanglement

Marine wildlife death by entanglement is something we should all be aware of. Thousands of miles and literally tons of derelict rope and fishing nets are littered into our water.

I found out that there are 682 beaches out there. We must keep them clean and safe in order to sustain life on this planet. So let’s support a good cause and help clean up fishing nets!

Check out the link below to learn about what is done to prevent marine wildlife entanglement.

Educational Graffiti – COOL Things to Do in the Classroom –

Yellow Fish Road™ Program is a Toronto and Region Conservation initiative that offers students a FREE half-day of curriculum-linked learning.

This hands-on program allows students and participants to get involved in community outreach action by getting out there and DOING something! Yellow Fish Road™ uses a PowerPoint presentation, an in-class demonstration and an interactive aspect to help students understand how our storm drains are directly linked to local water bodies without any purification/treatment.

i.e. everything we dump in storm drains goes directly into our water systems!

After students are educated, they can mark local storm drains with yellow fish and share educational pamphlets to homes in the area, helping educate others about storm water pollution.

* – The program runs from April-October and can be used in schools (grades 2-12), corporate and special interest groups or guides/scouts.

If you want to know how you can get your classroom involved, check out the Yellow Fish Road Website or the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority Website

Have a Leaky Faucet? – Save $$$

What MommaTrash does:

– Stick a bucket under the faucet to catch the drips –

∝ Use the water you collected for pets/houseplants
∝ If you collect enough water you can use it to mop, clean or flush the toilet

.

NOTE: Since she hasn’t had time to fix it, Mom’s been conserving water and saving herself some CA$H. As a long-term solution, fixing the leak would be most economical/environmentally friendly. A leaky faucet is a HUGE money waster for home owners.

This Agenda’s new life – 13

GO GREEN #13

Use a bucket of soapy water to wash your car — only use the hose for rinsing!

Only 1% of our planet’s water is fresh, liquid, and usable; 97% is saltwater; 2% is frozen in glaciers and polar icecaps (as of 2012)
