SeaRAG - 1 Disposable Bags - 0

RAN activists in Seattle have been tirelessly organizing for the past year on a "BYOB" or Bring Your Own Bag project that would reduce waste and encourage recycling within the city of Seattle. Yesterday, SeaRAG got news that their efforts paid off, Mayor Greg Nickels has proposed a disposable bag "green fee" which would apply to disposable shopping bags - both paper and plastic. SeaRAG's announcement is below, and includes a way for people to support the disposable bag fee by writing a letter to the editor encouraging the Seattle City Council to adopt the mayor's proposal. Congratulations SeaRAG!...

There Goes the Neighborhood: BoA Adopts Carbon Principles

See below for Bank of America’s most recent attempt at greenwashing --- many of you probably know that yesterday, on the very day that RAN, Energy Action and Co-op America were honoring the CEO of Bank of America, Ken Lewis as ‘Fossil Fool of the Year’, NRDC was giving him an award for his big green skyscraper in New York City. The comms team did a fantastic job of getting the Fossil Fools story in the news and our own Robin Beck scoured the streets of New York searching for Ken yesterday (award in hand).

Dynegy gets surprise gift for Fossil Fool’s Day

From RAN Houston. A little gift for Bruce Williamson and Dynegy. Happy Fossil Fool’s Day “Ten activists with Rainforest Action Network Houston showed up to take action on Dynegy’s headquarters. While two activists delivered our Fossil Fool of the Year award to CEO of Dynegy, Bruce Williamson, eight others released a balloon banner in the Wells Fargo Plaza’s main lobby. Everyone then proceeded to pass out literature about Dynegy, coal, and wind power in Texas to passers-by and people entering/exiting the building. The security though unaware reacted quickly however not timely enough to stop the two activists from delivering the award to Dynegy’s secretary or stop the balloon banner from making it to the lobby’s ceiling. No arrests were made.”
