Kick 2017 out with donation to fight for climate


Will you remember 2017 for the devastating floods? Monster hurricanes that ravaged Houston, Texas, South Florida and completely destroyed Puerto Rico?  Uncontrollable fires?  Blue algae poisoning fresh water sources in CNY and all over the USA?  One of the largest oil spills in North America, more than 200,000 gallons of crude oil spilled from Keystone pipeline?  One thing you won’t want to remember is that  2017 was “the” year you didn’t do ALL you could to fight climate change.
Climate change is the most dangerous social justice and geopolitical issue EVER in human history.
When food and water are most scarce, who will have it and who will not?
When severe weather destroys more communities, which ones will see the most suffering but least resilience or reinvestment?
Will Puerto Rico be the example of what will happen in poor communities all over the United States?
Please join the fight today, with a donation to Mainstream Green, because climate change is here, it is growing, and humans can no longer afford to ignore it.
Mainstream Green has posted a year end fundraiser on Facebook: Dana’s Not Another Hotter Year fundraiser for Mainstream Green, Inc.
Please donate there (or use the link or mailing address on this page) and then share it on your timeline, and ask other people to donate, also. Any amount will help. Facebook accepts donations and passes them along to us for free. Your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE (for the last time this year!) because Mainstream Green, Inc. is a 501C3 nonprofit corporation.

Really Bad Elf Perpetuates Plastic Pollution

This naughty elf is Unsustainable Scott!, and he perpetuates plastic pollution profusion!

What a gift it would be if this little elf would use a reusable coffee filter with loose ground coffee in his Keurig! Not only could he add the used coffee grounds to his compost pile, or mix it into soil around his evergreens or roses, but he could also save himself money by buying ground coffee or beans in bulk, AND prevent more plastic waste at the same time! (Especially if he used a PAPER or stainless steel straw, instead of a plastic one.)

Keurigs, which are basically little on-demand water heaters, are a very energy efficient way to heat water for single serving hot drinks, more efficient than teapots or saucepans.

It is super convenient and fast to put a tea bag or a powdered hot chocolate mix right in your mug, and then, using the empty holder that would hold one of the single serving cups,  tap the the “brew” button to get just the right amount of hot water you need to to fit the capacity of your mug.

A coffee filter like this one may be filled with loose ground coffee to make the perfect single serving size cuppa joe.

A Keurig type machine is the most energy efficient way to heat water for hot beverages including tea and hot chocolate.
