Ecuador’s president Rafael Corea calls Chevron a “multinational monster.”  Many celebrities have also taken to bashing Chevron, not wanting to miss the next hip environmental bandwagon.  On February 14th an Ecuadorian court lowered the boom on the American oil giant; a fine of $9.47 billion.  Perhaps the best part, if Chevron doesn’t apologize within 15 days then the fine jumps to 17.2 billion, o snap!  If the original fine were to be assessed it would go down as the greatest amount of damages ever awarded in an environmental case.

Are you against whaling?  If so, then you will be happy to hear that anti-whaling activists are putting up a real fight over in Japan.  Recently, the Japanese ended its whaling season early, bringing all of the ships back to port due to “harassment” from environmental activists, such as Sea Shepherd.  Since Japan fisheries could no longer ensure the safety of the whalers, they were forced to end the season early.  Although the whaling has only ended for the season, this is a huge step in whale protection because it shows that activists are making whaling very difficult for places like Japan.

Getting outside can mean everything. From childhood development to fighting depression and loneliness, nature is just as important to us as it is to our children.

It has been awhile since I’ve been to the mall, but it’s got me thinking about how sustainable shopping is.  Is it worth it to go to the store and look for the perfect pair of shiny, new pleather boots?  Or is it better to opt for an alternative? Read more…

Recently, a friend of mine and his new bride traveled to Africa for their dream honeymoon.  In their preparation for their amazing trip, my friend looked into all kinds of adventure tours and activities that most people typically think of when they go to the African continent.  One question I asked him, which he admitted he had not considered, was if any of these adventures were sustainable?

Coupled with skyrocketing fuel charges, the levies on carbon-spouting planes to be imposed under the European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) have airlines worrying about the cost of not going green. All airlines operating in the EU will be expected to cut emissions to three percent below the average annual figure for the period between 2004 and 2006 from 2012, and by an additional two percentage points in 2013.
