About Lynn

LH2013img2997As a mom and advocate of environmental awareness and education, I’d like to help you stay current on environmental issues—and solutions.

Specifically, environmental issues that may impact our health and, more importantly, the long-term health of our children.

I also want to help you realize that you can make a difference.

Being a mom, seeing the film Inconvenient Truth and the ridiculous amount of bottled water consumption I witnessed in my neighborhood all came together in a perfect storm that was the catalyst for the I Count for myEARTH blog and all that I do.

I’m currently working with Macroscopic Media to help spread the word about an important documentary film, Unacceptable Levels. Read more about it here.

When I can, I write. But it’s never enough. Which brings me to one of my favorite quotes:

Do what  you can, with what you’ve got, where you are.

~ Teddy Roosevelt

That’s something we can all do. And together—if we persevere—it will be enough.

And that’s kinda what’s behind the name I Count for myEARTH…

Taking ownership of the earth.

My earth, your earth…

Collectively, we can make a difference.

Each and every one of us counts.

  6. Nice and useful Blog.
    There is lot much to practice in the field of Environmental conservation and protection related issues. Let more and more people from developed countries become actors in this direction.The state of affairs in the developing countries is not that conducive as they have added problems of livelihood and survival apart from these bigger environmental issues nevertheless they too have some role to play.

  9. And did you know there’s actually an area of floating debris–including plastic–twice the size of Texas floating around in the Pacific ocean? It’s killing marine wildlife and has made its way into the food chain. We actually have traces of plastic in our bodies right now.

    There’s not just one: there are two of these disgusting man-made things in the Pacific; one in the North, another in the south. And two in the Atlantic. And another in the Indian Ocean. For a total of five, worldwide. They have a name: they’re called ‘gyres’.

    Five. Gyres.

    Find out more at (surprise!) 5gyres.org (please consider signing up to the plastic promise!).

    And: keep up the good work! :)
