ECOIST – Woody Harrelson and Voice Yourself

This week on THE GREEN, Woody Harrelson is the ECOIST and he has an ample supply of optimism when it comes to the unity of the green movement. Harrelson believes that enough people sharing their convictions can result in positive changes to the health and sustainability of modern society.

Rather than recreating the wheel, here is some information about Harrelson’s web site VoiceYourself as expressed in its “Mission” section:

Mission

“We believe all life on earth is sacred. VoiceYourself promotes and inspires individual action to create global momentum towards simple organic living and to restore balance and harmony to our planet.”

Vision

“Most of us are aware that the balance of nature is in peril. 1/5 of all mammals and 1/3 of all bird and fish species face extinction. Our water, air and food are being poisoned and everywhere from the Himalayas to the Antarctic temperatures are rising and ice is melting. Many genuinely care about the planet and each other but feel powerless to make change. There’s a design flaw in the system that keeps us fighting against each other. At VoiceYourself we start from a place of shared interest. VoiceYourself is a communication hub that promotes simple organic living through conscious consumerism, the sharing of ideas and information, as well as encouraging peaceful civil disobedience.

What we buy, eat and use to fuel our homes and cars have a giant impact, not just a personal one. We can’t keep feeding the beast, the heavily subsidized industries destructive to the well being of Mother Earth. VoiceYourself promotes and supports eco-friendly companies that help us get off the grid and leave a lighter footprint. The beast also controls politicians and mainstream media. VoiceYourself shares the news they don’t see fit to print. Our bulletin boards are the core of the VoiceYourself community where we can hang out, talk and share ideas. When we come together and join our voices in a chorus, we can create real change.

Dedicated people are out there fighting the good fight. VoiceYourself honors these heroes, highlights their actions and invites others to participate in their efforts. Come join us at VoiceYourself where we believe that through our collective support of green companies, mutual education and community activism we can in Gandhi’s words, ‘be the change you wish to see in the world.’”

The VoiceYourself.com website contains a variety of information that can help you be green. Whether you are interested in Harrelson’s favorite kitchen recipes or you just want to sign a good environmental petition, you can find these positive options on the site.
