It's time for a change

Carbon Conscious Consumer Logo

Ever think saving the environment is just too big for lil ole you? Global warming is way beyond us regular folks, right? Wrong!

Be the change you want to see in the world. (Ghandi)

Lots of little people, making just one change in habit at a time, all adds up. Just think of what we can accomplish, if we work together!

So come, pledge and share. Together we can change the world!

Dear Patti,

I’m with the Center for a New American Dream. We saw that you mentioned us, in checking out our new campaign. Last October, nearly 14,000 New Dreamers took the pledge to break their bottled water habit, reducing more than 46,000 pounds of carbon emissions in one month. That same month, we published our first edition of the Responsible Purchasing Network’s Guide to Bottled Water, our most popular RPN guide to date. We decided to take our work a few steps further and launched a multi-year campaign dedicated to Break the Bottled Water Habit at both the individual and institutional levels. We will have a pledge-based contest on our website starting in August, and the second edition of the RPN bottled water (or, more appropriately, bottle-less water) will also be released next month.

You might also be interested in checking out our two blogs. Our Carbon Conscious Consumer (C3) blog grew out of our C3 campaign. By getting people to change their daily habits in six simple ways we were able to eliminate 3.5 million pounds of carbon emissions. We also relaunched an old popular New Dream column as a blog in Live Green Below Your Means. The purpose of this blog is to prove that one doesn’t have to be rich to live green and provides easy and inexpensive tips to save the environment and some cash at the same time.

This is just a little of what we’re currently up to. Be sure to check out our website as we’re always adding new information and organizing campaigns to reduce our negative impact on the environment.

Thanks for supporting our work!
