Zazzle + CMBC = Earth Day Good Times

by

CMBC PostcardGotta love when a plan comes together…Recently members of the Center for Marine Biodiversity & Conservation (wow try saying that ten times fast) worked with Zazzle to create an awareness postcard to communicate the warning messages of the Global Climate change. One of the organizers, Ben, took a little time out of his busy day to tell me about why they chose to do a postcard handout with Zazzle…

“We decided that a postcard would be a good way to communicate this [global warming] message in a broad way. While fliers reach a similar range and number of people, we wanted to distinguish ourselves from all the other groups on and off campus that hand out fliers. A postcard differs because not only can they communicate a message, but people like to collect them or send them to family and friends. And with a fun image, clear text, and CMBC students out in the community actively handing them out and educating the public on Earth Day, we thought there would be extra incentive for our audience to hang onto them and to have the opportunity to expose them in a very unimposing way to another very serious issue related to the ocean…”

Here’s the link to their beautiful postcard. Got a cool story like that? Well you should tell it to me, I love story time…

    The oceans are suffering from second hand smoke, aka carbon dioxide (CO2).

    The oceans are warming and sea level is rising because of our addiction to fossil fuels, but did you know this dirty habit is also causing the oceans to become more acidic?

    A more acidic ocean will dissolve coral reefs and the shells that marine snails and clams need to survive. This loss of coral reefs and shellfish will severely impact important fisheries and human recreation; livelihoods worth as much as $100 billion per year for millions of people worldwide.

    CO2, Break the Habit.
