Help the Greenest Zoo in America raise money by recording YOUR green actions! Cincinnati’s regional sustainability alliance, Green Umbrella, is in the middle of their Spring Challenge in collaboration with MyActions.org, the social network for the planet. MyActions is a tool to share any green action you have taken throughout the day, and to encourage others to do the same. Tips, videos, and photographs can be shared to even further motivation and knowledge about green actions.
The Cincinnati Zoo has joined the challenge and we need YOUR help. Sign up to join our team, record your actions, and raise money for the Zoo. The Cincinnati Zoo has a team set up – all we need are members to join and start logging their actions! Go to http://www.myactions.org/greenumbrella, click on Cincinnati Zoo. You will then be taken to a sign up page – fill in your information and start logging your actions! You can even download the free app for your iPhone, iPod, and iPad which makes it even more convenient to share your actions.
Money is earned based on the number of actions and points you earn. Each time you log an action, you can include photos and comments – which gives you more points and more money! You can even share on Facebook.
The Zoo is currently #2 in the challenge behind Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. They have 35 members with 791 actions recorded and $230.25 raised for them. We have 34 members with 559 actions recorded and $131.25 raised for the Zoo.
Please sign up and start sharing your actions! Anything from recycling, adjusting the thermostat, carpooling, composting, turning lights off, unplugging electronics, taking short showers, sharing conservation information (so all keeper talks, shows, summer camps, etc. would be an action each day!), buying local, and biking are just a few of the actions that you can record. Each action you take can have a BIG impact on conservation. Saving water and energy, reducing waste and pollution, and raising awareness can all impact the habitats where these plants and animals live.
Share with your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers, and ask them to join the Cincinnati Zoo’s team as a part of the Green Umbrella challenge, which ends June 22nd. Help us become #1 in the challenge, while raising money and doing good for wildlife.
