This month's Green Moms Carnival topic is "I believe…"
It is because I believe…
* the fastest, most effective way to stop polluters is by pressuring them in the marketplace
* women can be the world’s most powerful economic and environmental force if we intentionally shift our spending to the best green products and services
* women have the power right now to solve many of our most serious environmental problems by using our green purses to make a difference
* women must act – intentionally, collectively, and with the full force of our purse power behind us – if we hope to leave our children and grandchildren a better world.
Women spend $.85 of every dollar in the marketplace. I believe we should tell manufacturers what to make; they should not be telling us what to buy.
I believe we only have as much power as we exercise. I also believe exercising our power gives us more.
I believe it is not too late … but it will be soon.
As the saying goes, if not us, who? If not now, when?
I believe it is up to us, and we must act now.
