Campaigning for our future

Well I've managed to get through the day so far without anything disasterous happening to me so I think I should survive :)

I got an email through from WWF this morning about a campaign to get a greener future into the forefront of the governments 'things to do' list. They are asking everyone to contact their local MP and remind them of the following issues that need to be addressed...

1. Setting an ambitious carbon reduction target of 42% by 2020

2. Helping UK stores to avoid illegally logged timber products - too many animals are losing their habitatsbecause of illegal logging.

3. Clamping down on illegal trade of endangered species

4. Arranging financial support to make our homes more energy efficient - which benefits everyone in the long run.

So if you want to get involved, just follow the link and they find your local MP and have a draft email ready to send which you can change to add your personal opinions etc. Even if you don't change their draft email, just clicking send will help towards action being taken.

If everyone sends just one email, maybe we can go some way to preventing deforestation....

And avoid more animals losing their homes...
