									40 TH ANNIVERSARY   1
                              Dear Friends,
                             Thank you for coming to Earth Day
                             Marin. It’s been 40 years since Earth
                             Day was founded by Wisconsin Senator
                             Gaylord Nelson, and though we have
                             achieved a great deal, we still have
                             great challenges to overcome. At this
                             pivotal time in history, when we have
exceeded the carbon levels in the atmosphere thought to be safe (see, it is time for all
of us to reach and stretch for that next level of green.

We are fortunate to live in a County full of green innovators in the fields of nonprofit/advocacy,
business, education, arts, government, and more. Earth Day Marin is about connecting you to these
resources and making it easier and more fun to get greener. We all feel overwhelmed sometimes,
unsure of where to start or what to do next, and this guide is here to help. Take it home and keep
it by the phone – so that at any time of year, you can access the information, products, volunteer
opportunities, education and career development, and other resources you need to easily go green
and make a pivotal difference for the planet.

Considering the challenges before us, it’s easy to get discouraged and imagine that what we do is a
pitiful drop in the bucket. But in the end it will be you, personally, that makes the difference.

Thank you for finding new ways to reduce your impact on the climate. Thank you for saving and
reusing resources, and buying the safest, most non-toxic products for your family. Thank you for
biking, walking, carpooling, and using public transit more. Thank you for eating local, organic food
and advocating for food safety, for preserving land and family farms, for protecting oceans and
rivers, and for respecting the irreplaceable necessity of water. Thank you for sharing the world with
animals. Thank you for supporting green building and the greening of all our practices. Thank you for
choosing the greenest power sources we have. Thank you for making and supporting art that inspires
us to action. Thank you for advocating for the future our youth deserve and for supporting youth
leadership. Thank you for writing letters to the editor, calling and faxing your representatives, and
working on political campaigns. Thank you for advocating for affordable organics and green jobs so
living green can become a way of life for everyone. Thank you for going against the grain when you
have to, and for standing up for what’s right whether it’s popular or not.

Humanity will rise to this challenge. Our world will survive and thrive again. There will be a bright and
sustainable future of green innovations and traditions, a strong and vibrant democracy, and respect
for diversity. And all of these things will happen because of you. Because of what you commit to do
today, this year, and in the future. Because of the people you influence. Because of the changes you
assure happen in our schools, religious communities, neighborhoods, Towns, Cities, Counties, Nation
and World.

You did it—you saved the world! Thank you. You’re my hero.

             The 10/ 10
             Climate Challenge
Global climate change is melting the planet’s ice caps and glaciers far faster than previ-
ously predicted, and many scientists now say that thresholds triggering irreversible climate
change will be reached this decade unless carbon pollution can be dramatically reduced
(by at least 80%) during the next ten years . . . .

Take the Pledge
Do your part now by pledging to reduce your own contribution to Marin’s carbon footprint
(and urging others to do likewise) by 10% in 2010, and then by 10% each year (from current
levels) through 2020 . . . .
Here’s How                                                   Carbon Reduction
        Reduce driving by 15%                                          10%
        Reduce home energy & water use by 20%                           5%
        Reduce/reuse/recycle to achieve zero waste                      5%

       to your representatives is to write and tell them

70% of all lawmakers said they pay great attention to
personally written letters, while only 19% give the same
to form letters. Be brief and to the point in the letter;
attach any supporting information rather than overload
