Olivia and Carter were invited to speak at Shandon UMC in Columbia SC over the weekend and we had an amazing group of almost 200 church members join our presentation. The kids delivered a message to the congregation about the need for everyone to get involved with caring for ALL of God’s creations.
Carter and Olivia were recently invited to present their Plastic Awareness Week curriculum program at 2012 Environmental Education Alliance (EEA) of Georgia Annual Conference. The EEA of Georgia has been serving environmental educators throughout Georgia since 1992.
The event offered over 20 workshops on topics such as “A Biblical Theological Foundation for Creation Care” to “Faith Principles of Creation Care” and, of course, our specialty “Environmental Stewardship”.
OMG’s message to the congregation is one of hope. We outline why each church community should reevaluate their current program offerings to ensure we are all focusing on the fact that as stewards of God’s creations it is up to use to protect the earth and all He has given to us.
Let’s talk about Global Climate Change; did you know that “it is estimated that more than 1/3rd of the Earth’s animal species and almost 20% of the plant species face extinction by 2050 if we maintain our current greenhouse gas trajectory.”
Olivia and Carter hosted an Endangered Species educational program for the Fayette Public Library After School Program
In an effort to raise awareness about the serious issue of Plastic Pollution (and in particular Single-Use Plastic Bags), we have partnered with GA Tech’s Think Green Team and the folks from the GA Tech Surf Club to bring you this award winning documentary which explores how much each of us currently depend on plastic.
THE NIGHTMARE of human pollution was exposed for all to see today when Phuket veterinarians cut open a giant leatherback turtle in a post mortem.
Inside the stomach, the cause of the wonderful creature’s death became apparent. Six plastic bags obstructed the 15-year-old turtle’s digestive system, preventing food from being absorbed.
