Day 139 of our Green Year: Joining Greenpeace

One proud fact of being Canadian is that it was Canadians who created Greenpeace. Greenpeace is a very important organization that has done a lot of good work throughout the past 30 years or so, including fighting against the seal hunt, whaling, toxic waste dumping and more.

As a result, We have decided that we will be joining Greenpeace, by getting their newsletter and joining their mailing list. By doing this, we will take part in sending letters to politicians to help get environmental measures implemented, as well helping out in our community for Greenpeace events and fundraisers.

We are proud to be part of Greenpeace and are looking forward to helping them in the future through Our Green Year.

UPDATE: So far, We have scheduled to get rid of much of our clothing and most of our books to an organization in our town called People Loving People. On top of that, we have had someone take our vacuum, radio, book case, and someone has taken a look at our patio furniture. The quest for 100 possessions goes strong.
