As a member of Surfrider, World Wildlife Fund and Oceana, I am very concerned and in touch with everything going on with our environment, or at least I try to be!
One website that is a great source of information is the Natural Resources Defense Council’s website. The NRDC is one of the most effective environmental action organizations. It gives valuable and accurate information about policies in place, how to make your business more environmentally friendly, ways you can get involved and just facts about the oceans you swim in and the air you breathe.
I was particularly interested in the “Testing the Waters” report, listing local beaches and how they fared against NRDC’s star-criteria, which rewards beaches based on how often they meet/don’t meet health standards. How did YOUR beach rank?
NRDC also has a separate website called It’s Your Nature geared towards younger people looking to get involved and learn more about our environment and the natural resources we rely on every day. Pairing art, music and celebrities, this “hipper” NRDC website will hopefully continue educating the next generations to come!
Happy Hump Day!
