Do the 10-10-10!
Mother Earth needs us now more than ever.
The Gulf of Mexico was nearly destroyed by gushing oil in April. Pakistan recorded record-setting temperatures of 128.3°F in May. And now researchers are saying that Arctic ice is younger, thinner and disappearing more than ever.
Global warming is REAL and we must do something to stop it.
It’s not too late for your company or organization to start saving the planet with a 10-10-10 Global Work Party event!
What is 10-10-10?
The idea behind the 10-10-10 Global Work Party is simple: On Oct. 10, 2010, people from all over the globe will join forces to work on a project that helps reduce carbon emissions to fight global warming.
You can get involved by doing something as simple as replacing old bulbs with new energy efficient ones at your company or organization. Or, you could ride your bike to work with a co-worker or two instead of driving there.

Why Should You Care?
Global warming is a harsh reality that we all must face. By convincing ourselves that global warming doesn’t exist, we are only hurting ourselves and our planet in the end.

What is 350?
The sponsor of the Global Work Party, 350.org, claims that 350 is “the most important number in the world.”
What makes 350 so important? Well, scientists say that 350 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humans. The planet is currently at 390 ppm of CO2. It is important for humans to lower their carbon emissions or else the planet will be at constant risk for human and natural disasters.
