sweetriot is honored to affiliate with green organizations -- we were especially psyched when Vanity Fair cited our reusable packaging by placing us in their first ever Green Issue, which used recyled paper.
The Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC) had an event last night, which featured sweetriot and other eco-friendly companies in its gift bags. This is a compelling organization, which does endless meaningful work to support natural resources. Bobby Kennedy, Jr, spoke at the event and is a fierce advocate for the environment.
Today I also received this note from a friend:
"Last night we saw An Inconvenient Truth and I cannot recommend enough that you see it. For those of you who don't know, it's about global warming and quite honestly it's terrifying. It also will enlighten you and frustrate you and make you do something which is why you're all receiving this. ;)
For anyone who thinks global warming is a hoax, you especially should see the film. The only people that deny its happening are politicians in the U.S., so you should consider who you want to trust: Scientists or George Bush types? Hmmm... You will also find information such as how the U.S. and Australia are the ONLY two countries who have not ratified Kyoto.
You'll see what will happen to all of us and all life on earth if we don't stop global warming by reducing CO2 admissions. And you'll hear sad stories about how polar bears are drowning since they have to swing so far from piece of ice to another, something they've never had to do before.
The consequences of this are not far off: Scientists reckon that devastating affects will happen in the next 10 years. It's not longer something that we can afford to ignore."
Green is clearly a topic of our generation. It is our responsibility to take care of the earth. It will affect our generation and the ones after us. How do you feel about NRDC, the Environment, Global Warming, etc? A diversity of opinions are always welcome at sweetriot.
