Happy Earth Day everyone!
I have been trying to figure out how to write an Earth Day blog that doesn’t sound like everyone else’s and doesn’t have more clichés than you could shake a stick at, like “you should make Earth Day Everyday” (which is absolutely true!) but alas, you can’t win them all!
So I will add yet another cliché, a picture is worth a thousand words. That being said, SVTC has launched our first ever video contest to start today, Earth Day, to draw attention to the devastating impacts that e-waste has on the environment and communities. We are eager to have creative individuals who care about this issue help create awareness.
Go to: http://svtc.org/videocontest2009 to find out more.
Almost everyone in the U.S. has a computer or television, but at the end of the day, many have no idea what goes into these products or what happens to them when they are no longer useful. That’s why we need some creative minds out there to help us spread the word.
Not sure you can create a video? Well, we also hope that people will not let yet another golden opportunity slip away and will make a few clicks to help pass federal legislation that seeks to take the issue of e-waste seriously -because no man is an island.
