GO GREEN ONE MONTH AT A TIME…

This great infographic from Green Will explains how to go green one month at a time.

GREENWILL is the global nonprofit initiative which created the Green Policy, the world standard environmental policy.

The Green Policy is available for free in over 40 languages, and it is used in over 120 countries.

By adopting a Green Policy, any business, organization (formal or informal) or individual is provided with a clear, simple and completely voluntary path to becoming more environmentally friendly.

GREENWILL joined Al Gore and The Climate Reality Projectin a mission to help spread the word and make sure countries would achieve a strong emission reduction agreement in Paris at the UN Climate Summit (COP21) in December 2015.

The Summit for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, agreed to achieve a legal binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.
