I can remember as a child learning about the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling. All the environmental problems seemed so out of my reach, never realizing how my small efforts could help on a whole. Today, people are completely reliant on fossil fuels for their energy needs and are finally feeling the repercussions of our actions. Due to our mass usage of coal, oil and gas we have punctured a hole in the ozone layer and have propelled global warming up the hierarchy of environmental concern. Global warming, or the increase in temperature and change in climate, can cause dramatic weather events such as droughts, floods, melting polar areas, rising sea levels and loss of coral reefs (Greenpeace.org).

This campaign supports the use of renewable and clean energy and is dedicated to bringing all the information to the
