350.0rg is an international campaign that's building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that science and justice demand.

350's mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet. Our focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million CO2. If we can't get below that, scientists say, the damage we're already seeing from global warming will continue and accelerate. But 350 is more than a number--it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.

The 10/10/10 is a day of work parties and awareness for climate change across the globe.....we are busy planning a day of action in Richards Bay, interested in getting involved, have some good ideas on how we can get people to take action to slow climate change? Then contact us, we are keen to hear from you and get you involved ! Click here to contact us

Reducing global warming with white roofs

Innovations to reduce global warming are wonderful to see. Last week I was inspired by a parking lot that made all its covers from solar panels, this week I noticed an article in the September Edition of Popular Mechanics that outlines the impact of painting roofs in cities white ....quite impressive impact and so simple!
