“Earth Day Network today announced a collaboration with Facebook to engage people worldwide in environmental action through the Billion Acts of Green®campaign. The two organizations worked together to create a new application or “app” that is inspiring people around the world to take actions to reduce their impact on the environment.
A Billion Acts of Green®is a global campaign that drives voluntary efforts to improve our environment. It encourages individuals and organizations to undertake acts of environmental service and advocacy, and to share them with the world. These actions can be immediate changes like switching to energy efficient light bulbs, or large-scale projects that achieve lasting change, such as efforts to green our cities and our schools.”

Austin Kleon finds poetry in newspapers.
“Instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs the New York Times and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need.”— NPR’s Morning Edition
“…a kind of Rorschach approach to reading newspapers…” —The Wall Street Journal
“The poems] resurrect the newspaper when everyone else is declaring it dead…like a cross between magnetic refrigerator poetry and enigmatic ransom notes, funny and zen-like, collages of found art…” —The New Yorker
This is a great creative exercise. Try it!
