On being a Green and searching for a new job

I have begun my search for a job, which will have some meaning for me and will hopefully be personally rewarding. A good part of this afternoon, I will spend working on my resume and checking out a bunch of different progressive non-profit organizations on the Web.

Here are a few I am very interested in:
Peace Action
U.S. Public Interest Research Group
Friends Committee on National Legislation
Public Citizen

Regarding USPIRG, I noticed one of their canvasers today outside of my work. If you see these young guys and gals around town, talk to them. Sign their petition, offer to buy them lunch. They are doing some great work, and the work is very demanding! Here are some of the important environmental campaigns they have taken on right now:

I guess the environment is something I have not yet taken on in my blog. Of course the earth is our home, and there's more all of us could do. I do make my best attempts to buy only recycled paper products. I am the only one in my house who tries to recycle as much as we possibly can. It is a little disheartening to see so many people in the area who don't recycle at all! This care for the environment and concern for the earth's future are central to being a Green in my opinion.
