- Facebook Tree Planting Campaign - When The Eco Mum started out on this journey, we had just advertised on Facebook that throughout June 2011 we will purchase a tree via CarbonNeutral to sequest emmissons for the next 100 years for every new fan that joined us on the journey. 112 new Eco Mummas joined us and so we purchased 120 trees to sequest emissions for the next 100 years. Receipts and details of the purchase of the trees can be viewed here.
- Eco Mum Boycotts
As an active activist (say THAT 10 times fast!) I pledge not to support companies that aren't doing the right thing by Australians and by our beautiful country. See who I have pledged to BOYCOTT here
