Earth: She’s Alive, Beautiful, Finite, Hurting…

January 26th, 2013

Comments Off on Earth: She’s Alive, Beautiful, Finite, Hurting…

{Warning: Graphic Scenes} When we received this beautiful and evocative video again we had to post it. Feel free to share the beauty and pain of Earth with your friends and family.

This is a non-commercial attempt from Sanctuary Asia to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporations and consumers are combining to destroy life on Earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network. The principal source for the footage was Yann Arthus-Bertrand‘s incredible film HOME homethemovie.org. The music is by Armand Amar. Thank you too, Greenpeace and TimeScapes.

Dalai Lama Center: Educate The Heart

December 24th, 2012

Compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline through engagement with the community. These are the values that contribute to peace and harmony locally, nationally and globally. We believe that most people embrace and recognize the importance of these values, but often don’t know how to access the information and guidance they seek to bring them into their lives. We will help them do that.

Birth 2012: A Change Of Consciousness

December 20th, 2012

Comments Off on Birth 2012: A Change Of Consciousness

The end of the long-count Mayan calendar on December 21st has provoked apocalyptic fears, doomsday books and films, parodies, and is even triggering outbreaks of panic, as recently reported in a December 1st New York Times article on Russia’s end-of-the-world anxiety. By contrast, the far more positive and forward-looking Birth 2012 movement organized by The Shift Network offers a creative and hopeful alternative. Rather than feed fears, the movement aims to turn this marker point into a “birth day” for a new era that is healthy, sustainable, and peaceful. The conveners recognize the power of this once-in-five-thousand-years turning point to unify people globally around a commitment to create a world that works for all.

One Day On Earth: Your Stories Matter

December 11th, 2012

Comments Off on One Day On Earth: Your Stories Matter

One Day on Earth: Participate in this Historic, Global Film Trilogy


If you one had one day to document any thing on Earth for future generations to learn from, what would it be? If you knew people in every country in the world were answering that question on the same day, how would it effect your choice? Join One Day on Earth on Wednesday 12/12/12, for an amazing media event occurring in every country in the world to create a geo-tagged archive and feature film. On this day, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voices. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.



This is our third year producing such an event. Starting on 10/10/10 we made history by being the first film created in every country in the world. The resulting 3,000 hours of footage in 95 languages was cut into a 104 minute movie available for streaming on iTunes starting on 12/12/12. But rather than watch a film, we really hope to engage people to participate in creating one.


Do this: Be a part of a global, participatory film project The project is open to any topic, but we have decided to add a suggested theme this year, asking participants to film their answers to the questions, “What do they have?” and “What do they need?” We hope the resulting answers to these questions will inform both where we are now, and a sustainable path to the future. When you think about it, nearly anything one might choose to film could be related to a have or need. We each have so much that others need—and often need what others have. But we might just find that collectively we have everything we need, if we just found a better way to connect the world.


To participate just go to www.onedayonearth.org and sign up. Go out and film your submission on 12/12/12 and and upload the clip to our archive, which we think of as a video time capsule on a map. On our site, there are regional and topical groups for people collaborating on different ideas in different locales. Topics include everything from music, weddings, environmental causes and childbirth. There’s a quite a lively community preparing to document 12/12/12 and we’d love you to be a part of it. If you yourself cannot film, we are looking for greater participation in the developing world. Spreading the word to your overseas contacts is something we always appreciate. The One Day on Earth Foundation’s mission is to connect media creators with causes globally. With over 30,000 community members worldwide, the Foundation is partnered with 60 nonprofit organizations including the United Nations, IOM, 350.org and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

10 Surprising Fair Trade Certified Products

October 1st, 2012

Comments Off on 10 Surprising Fair Trade Certified Products

October is Fair Trade Month!

It’s a time to celebrate all of the good that we have done for farmers and workers through Fair Trade so far and unite to build awareness of the cause so that it will continue to thrive. Maybe someday it will become as common as organics, or even the new norm?!

If you’re not quite sure how Fair Trade works, take a detour and head over to Fair Trade USA’s website for a quick overview.

Fair Trade Month is also a great time to highlight the diverse range of Fair Trade Certified products that are available in more than 100,000 retail locations in North America. That’s right, Fair Trade is so much more than just coffee, cocoa and tea!

Here are some awesome Fair Trade Certified products that might surprise you:

1. prAna’s Fair Trade Certified clothing line

prAna was one of the first brands to partner with Fair Trade USA to bring Fair Trade to the apparel industry. Not only does the program support cotton farmers, it also brings safer working conditions, community development funds and freedom of association to factory workers.

2. Popcorn, Indiana Drizzled Cinnamon Sugar Kettlecorn

This beyond-delicious popcorn is sweetened with Fair Trade Certified cinnamon and sugar. My mouth is watering just writing about it.

3. Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Ok, I had to mention one coffee, but only because it’s a limited edition that makes a special appearance every Fair Trade Month. You can order it in bagged or K-Cup form from Green Mountain Coffee.

4. Guayusa

Have you heard about the new tea in town? It has almost as much caffeine as coffee, but it gives you “focused energy” that is perfect for studying, writing and checking items off you to-do list. It comes from an indigenous tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon with an incredible story.

5. Agave

Seems like agave is the hottest sweetener among the health conscious. It’s 1.4 times sweeter than sugar so you can use less and save calories (and support farming communities). Look for Fair Trade Certified Agave syrup from Madhava. Perhaps Fair Trade Certified tequila is on the horizon?

6. Wine and Spirits

That brings me to Fair Trade Certified wine and spirits. Look for Wandering Grape Malbec Merlot (available at Target) or try FAIR. Quinoa – the first vodka made from Fair Trade Certified quinoa from Bolivia.

7. Roses

Did you know that almost all of the roses sold in the United States come from Colombia and Ecuador? The flower industry is largely supported by women who are working in tough conditions with lots of pesticides. Fair Trade ensures safe working conditions, reduced chemical usage and better wages. You can find Fair Trade Certified roses at Whole Foods Market or online at One World Flowers.

8. Soccer Balls

Make your game a little fairer with a Fair Trade Certified soccer ball. Fair Trade ensures that all workers in the supply chain – factory workers and stitchers – receive at least the national minimum wage and work in safe conditions.

9. Soap

Clean up your act with a bar of Fair Trade Certified soap, like this one from Hand-in-Hand. It’s made with Fair Trade cocoa butter, smells amazing and for every bar you buy, another bar is donated to kids and families who need it (like orphanages in Haiti – how cool is that?).

10. Lip Balm

Put your money where your mouth is. These amazing lip balms from Badger Balm are made with Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter and are packed with antioxidants for a beautiful smile.
