Earth Conscious Organization

Recently, Alex the founder of ECO contacted me about their new site: www.earthconsciousorganization.org.  It’s just taking off, and I want to raise awareness about the website as well because it’s informative and important. I love nature, people, and animals. “Be the change you want to see in the world”, that’s my favorite Gandhi quote and I try my very best to live by it.

“We are a non-profit organization - our main goals are to raise both funding and awareness for animal-rights, environmental and civil rights organizations. With the help of our supporters we are able to keep this site running and continue funding various charities. We are strong believers in the welfare of animals, the importance of environmental awareness and care, fair trade, and the equal rights of individuals regardless of religion, sex or race.” - Alex Townsend ECO Founder

For instance, I never knew that live animals were being sold in key chains. That's so sad, it breaks my heart. Read more here:

Who would do such a terrible thing for money, and who in their right mind would buy it! So that means that someone out there is supporting this buy purchasing the animals. It’s no different than puppy mills/pet stores.

Also, the article about breaking elephant’s spirits is heart wrenching as well. Elephants are such social creatures and I have learned that they have excellent memories. I’m reminded of other sad stories where elephants would lose a family member because they were killed by people. So the traumatized animal would wreak havoc on the villagers that killed their beloved relative until they had their revenge. Of course it was like a suicide mission for the poor thing, because it probably would end up dead as well. Animals aren’t stupid and there is cause and effect to everything.

On a more uplifting note, I can't wait for them to update their Beauty, Fashion, and Travel sections of the site. I would love to hear more tips and tricks, because I can always learn to improve my eco habits in some way. Also, the recipes look yummy! I'll have to check in when they have more up.

So head on over to the site, it's very education. I spent a lot of time there learning myself. 
Be kind to one another and the planet. 
Something as simple as that can make the world we live in a better place.
