"Unless you ride a burro to the local restaurant or grocery store, you're using fossil-fuel energy to get there." A lot of us might laugh away the statement. But some might take notice. That's what www.grinningplanet.com aims for.
Environmental degradation makes for some seriously depressing news. So, how about cartoons that can help you understand the issues better and some jokes to help you spread the information?
The website has a list of bad restaurant jokes, gags on eco-friendly dolls and killer asteroids, and animations on fair-trade. But there is serious stuff as well. The cartoons lead you to articles on energy, food security, recycling and the oil crisis.There is also a list of books and documentaries. As those who run it say "Enjoy the funny clean cartoons and/or the eco articles--your choice!"
