How It Works
Go Green Cards has 52 cards, each with an action step related to living more sustainable. Every week, participants randomly draw one card and refer to the accompanying guidebook for explanations, suggestions, and insight into accomplishing the chosen action step during that week. By focusing on an individual action step, participants are able to practice and integrate new behaviors at a deeper level. Our main goal with Go Green Cards is to simplify the transition to living more sustainable by breaking it down into manageable weekly action steps. By providing guidance and resources, we believe that participants will have an easier time incorporating sustainable living practices into their lives.
Why It Matters
Earth is a magical place. From the immense beauty of the rain forests to the mysterious ecosystems inhabiting our oceans, we live on a planet that is bountiful beyond our wildest imaginations. For hundreds of thousands of years, people have lived in harmony and balance with the earth, until recently. Overconsumption, blatant disregard for the environment’s health, and soaring populations have combined to create an unprecedented level of environmental destruction. Fortunately, there is a growing response to create a world in which the human race can sustain itself, not just for a little while longer, but into the years 2300, 2400, and well beyond. We are indeed at a critical point in the history of humanity. One in which we all have a responsibility to future generations to do our part in creating a world where not just our children can survive and prosper, but also our grandchildren and great, great, great grandchildren.
