You are most cordially invited to join Whale Coast Conservation for green tea, green cake and talking ‘green’ at the Green House on Earth Day.
Earth Hour has barely passed and now there is Earth Day. Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. People plant trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected officials, and more—all on behalf of the environment.
Like Earth Days of the past, Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our time. As the world’s population migrates to cities, and as the bleak reality of climate change becomes increasingly clear, the need to create sustainable communities is more important than ever. Earth Day 2014 will seek to do just that through its global theme: Green Cities. With smart investments in sustainable technology, forward-thinking public policy, and an educated and active public, we can transform our cities and forge a sustainable future.
Whale Coast Conservation’s home base, the Green House on the R43 in Vermont, is a shining example of green technology – generating our own power, collecting rain water, and using waterless toilets. We also run ‘greening’ projects in communities, assist schools to embrace ‘green’ through our Eco-Schools programme, promote ‘sustainable communities’ and run environmental awareness campaigns.
So, please join us at the Green House at 16h00 on Tuesday 22 April for green tea and talking green. The WCC ‘green’ team will be on hand to tell you (over tea) how we are helping the Cape Whale Coast communities to become more sustainable, and what each of us could do at home, work or school to decrease our impact on the environment.
