Don't miss Green Energy Consumers staff have been posting videos all week leading up to Giving Tuesday (November 30th)! Videos on important climate news and solutions will be posted on this blog, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and on greenenergyconsumers.org/donate all week.
Giving Tuesday (November 30th 2021) is "the antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday," when people give to their favorite causes instead of buying. As we prepare to enter our 40th year, we would be grateful for your donations, since we're faced with new challenges:
- a shorter timeline to act on climate according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change;
- an unprecedented transportation emissions plan put on hold here in New England;
- two new policies (Act on Climate in Rhode Island and the Climate Roadmap and CECP in Massachusetts) demanding significant emissions reductions by 2030.
Watch our videos and find out why your donations are needed this #GivingTuesday. Stay tuned to this blog, where we'll post the videos after broadcast, and follow us on Facebook to watch most videos live!
