ePals, Inc., joins national consumer brands Dell, Harrah's, SC Johnson, Starbucks, and Wrigley, and three non-profit organizations, Conservation International, Rocky Mountain Institute and Prince's Rainforest Project, to announce the launch of "Team Earth." The global sustainability movement kicked off today in New York with an elaborate event featuring Harrison Ford, a life-size origami forest, and the launch of www.epals.com/teamearth featuring student voices and community-based action. The inaugural campaign's focus is forest protection and the Copenhagen Climate Negotiations.
"Team Earth" unites businesses, non-profit organizations, scientists, educators, parents, and students in an international collective action campaign to address the most pressing environmental issues facing the world. ePals offers an interactive, safe focus area for students worldwide to engage in competitions, voice their opinions and take action.
In the focus area students can take action by joining "Team Earth," getting their classrooms on the map, reviewing resources about important environmental issues, and uploading user-generated content to highlight ideas about how they will help save the rainforest. These multimedia presentations will be shared with the world's leaders responsible for the Copenhagen Climate Negotiations, and can be added to any blog or Web page by grabbing the "Students Speak" widget.
