Our Youth Speak Up

About This Website

Let's hear from our children, and their advocates, on the social, environmental, cultural, and economic concerns around sustainability and the call to always act responsibly and with the next seven generations in mind. This poster from the Earth & Spirit Council's Earth Day 2012 Ceremony in Portland, Oregon is a collaborative effort of students and friends. It conveys hope, love, and concern as we know we will find in the children's voices of sustainability. The collection will also feature, from time to time, adults who are speaking on behalf of children. 

To add to this collection email children@earthsayers.com.  Thank you.

ORANG, Girl Scout Cookies, and Palm Oil by Tomtishen & Madison

Rhiannon Tomtishen & Madison Vorva created Project ORANG (Orangutans Really Appreciate and Need Girls Scouts) in 2007. They discovered that the Girl Scouts' iconic cookies contain palm oil, and that palm oil plantations are one of the leading causes of orangutan habitat destruction. They started a campaign to get the Girl Scouts to replace palm oil with a more eco-friendly oil instead. They have since partnered with Rainforest Action Network, co-authoring a petition that has generated more than 70,000 emails to the Girl Scouts headquarters.  Both a great admirers of Jane Goodall.
