One Million Women can make a change

I was just reading Kebeni's lovely blog Looking out a broken window, and her most recent post is about a fantastic initiatiative of one million women committing to take action on climate change.

What a great idea! I've joined, and I hope some of you will as well. Here's a brief blurb taken directly from the organisation's website, and thanks again to Kebeni for sharing the concept!

The Campaign

1 Million Women - A campaign of daughters, mothers, sisters and grandmothers - Committed to protecting our climate, our communities and our future, leading change for the better.

Our goal is to inspire 1 million Australian women to take practical action on climate change by cutting 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming.

Every woman who joins has a personal goal to cut 1 tonne of CO2 from their daily lives within a year of joining the campaign.

Here on our 1 Million Women website you'll be guided through ways to cut your 1 tonne, and to track your progress as you go along. You don't have to be an expert on climate change. Just join up and we'll guide you every step of the way.

1 Million Women - a million tonnes of CO2. It's a huge challenge.

With your help we will make it happen.

Thanks Sparkly! I have joined.

I wasn't sure how to pledge regarding some stuff. e.g. I hardly ever drive, maybe once a fortnight, so I can't really pledge to drive less... !
