What is it going to take for people to save water?  California and many other parts of the country are in a drought.  In our area, we are only allowed to water outside 2 x per day outside the hours of 9am-6pm. 

We still see people with their sprinklers on during the day.  Why risk having to pay a fine?  Many are installing drought tolerant gardens, and artificial lawns.  Half of the plants in our front yard are victims of the drought.  How are things in your area?

We need the ocean and marine life to survive.  The waters help regulate our climate and give us oxygen to breathe, and is a great food supply.

We all depend on the health of our ocean...

Protect the ocean and you’ll not only protect the wonderful life beneath the waves, but you will also help communities thrive. Visit our marine stories series → http://pand.as/1EdSrLi and spread the word to help us raise awareness.

Did you know?  Lowes home supply stores sell plants that have been sprayed with bee-killing pesticides.  Sign the petition!

FROM CREDO ACTION:
"Global bee populations are declining at an alarming rate and putting our food supply at risk – and a growing body of scientific evidence places the blame squarely on neonicotinoid pesticides."

Insane News  A zoo in Argentina allows (and apparently promotes) visitors to feed and pet large dangerous mammals such as tigers, lions and bears.  What do you think about this? 

#wildcats #zoos  
Experts say that a zoo near Buenos Aires which allows visitors to pet and feed lions, tigers and bears that they claim to have domesticated, is posing a serious risk to both animals and humans.

Success with the Lowe's petition to Protect our Pollinators!

Thanks to thousands of people who told Lowe’s to stop selling plants with pesticides!  According to +Center For Food Safety they are taking action to phase out neonicotinoid pesticides, and this is "the most significant public commitment so far for a retailer of its size."  Yay!  Nice job activists!

Here's to hoping "suitable" alternatives become available (of course they have to be suitable to Lowe's corporate management)!
