• Non Profit Organization: Take a Look!



    For my senior thesis, I forces on Environmental Issue. As more I understand about how serious our environment has been damaging, I feel deeply bad about what have we done. The impact of the global environment will bounce back sooner or later in an overwhelming issue; therefore, we better take our step earlier and sooner to face the unpredictable volcano.

    1-Grassroots-Environmental Education Grassroots is a non-profit organization founded in 2002 by Patti and Doug Wood. This non Profit organization shows people how serious steps we are moving towards. People are not just hurting the global environment but human being as well. The mission of Grassroots is to educate the public about the links between common environmental exposures and human health problems.They believe the cultivation of broad-based support through education is the key to positive and lasting change. They seek to empower individuals to act as catalysts for change within their own communities

    2-Npta- The Association for the paper, packaging and supplies distribution channel. The NPTA Alliance (formerly the National Paper Trade Association, Inc.), founded in 1903, is the association for the $60+ billion paper, packaging, and supplies distribution industry. NPTA's mission is to actively support the success of our members through the delivery of networking, advocacy, education, and research that focuses on the health of the distribution channel.

    3-Rainforest Relief Rainforest Relief is a mostly volunteer-based environmental organization that has become a nationally recognized leader in rainforest wood research and campaigning. Our main office is in New York City and we have a chapter in Portland, Oregon as well as part-time staff and volunteers working in New York, Los Angeles, New Jersey and Costa Rica. **Tim Keating, a co-founder of the organization in 1989, is currently the Executive Director. Our Mission**

    Rainforest Relief works to end the loss of the world’s tropical and temperate rainforests and protect their human and non-human inhabitants by reducing demand for the products of rainforest logging, mining and agricultural conversion, through education, advocacy, research and action. Rainforest Relief is focused on the demand side of the rainforest-destruction equation. We’ve always said, “There are two front lines in the battle to spare the rainforests: one is between the farmer or logger and the trees, the other is between the consumer and the store shelf.”

  • I am not sure if it is the final direction you are going in but you mentioned your interest in environmental impact and how to address the problem. Aside from the current skyrocketing gas prices, I think the most effective "product" to address climate change was a power point presentation. Now Al Gore's movie/presentation was not without its flaws but its approachability and high media profile probably motivated more people than 20 years of hippies banging on drums stoned out of their tie-died heads. The reason I bring this up is not because I think you should run for vice president, (apparently anyone can..cough cough) but because when approaching the issue of environmentalism there are non traditional methods of remedying the issue.

    I think once you choose a specific area more of these nontraditional approaches to environmentalism will become apparent.
