Hi Everyone,

We're new to Care2 and really think it's a wonderful place for peole to learn about the climate actions (or inactions) of the world's largest companies.

We're not sure what the best way to grow our group is and would love to hear what you have to say!

In the meantime, if you can suggest our group to your friends that'd be great. We also have an active Facebook fan page which you can find here: http://bit.ly/9M0W7B

Thanks for all of your support! Let's change business as usual!

Most of us start our days the same way. We smack our alarm clock, wish it were Saturday, and get dressed. The scary thing is, the clothes we wear today reflect the votes we make for or against our climate’s future. Every purchasing decision we make is a vote. Think about the number of socks, underwear, [...]

Which ones are actually working to bring our planet Back-2-Cool? In 2008, the top 100 brands spent over $100 billion dollars on US advertising alone, [...]

Are CEOs greener than we think? And if it’s true, what’s holding them back from moving the market towards a sustainable future?

The devastating and escalating events in the Gulf of Mexico underscore an amazing collection of problems: reliance on polluting energy, absence of a coherent national energy plan, the problems with lax government oversight, and dozens of others. Perhaps most clearly, it shows the gulf we should have seen years ago between the image of BP [...]

Earth Day is coming, and with it, hours and hours of “green” television programming and print media coverage. People who hardly give the environment a thought all year will be “Green Watching” programs – and advertisements – about how to be more environmentally responsible.

It is often said that the college years are the best years of one’s life. In the ideal setting, the freedom to learn, grow friendships, explore one’s passions and embrace youth all collide in a four-year span to create a sort of responsibility-free utopia. Amidst this collision, a college student may feel detached [...]

With last month’s Supreme Court ruling that corporations (with much deeper pockets than yours and mine) are now able to directly support specific political candidates and issues without spending limits or disclosure, we’ve seen the upending of decades of bipartisan support for the regulation of corporate and [...]
