Tips for Getting Involved
Here are some of the many ways to get involved in solving environmental problems.
Speak Out: Whether you sending a letter to your Senator, gently reminding your friends to vote, or testifying in a county commission meeting, your voice really counts. Your involvement in environmental issues makes our democracy work. Without it, the only voices that are heard are those with a vested interest. Please see Action Alerts for issues that need immediate attention today.
Vote: Voting is the easiest, most important thing you can do to ensure that current environmental laws are protected and implemented, and new laws are written. If you want to preserve the environment and protect public health, make sure to VOTE!
Reduce, ReUse, Recycle: It's easy to recycle. It's just as easy
to reduce your consumption of energy and material goods once you get in
the habit. There are a lot of resources on how to make your personal contribution
to a healthier planet. Try contacting METRO Recycling Hotline and the
Northwest Earth Institute.
