  • Tell the EPA about your NGV for Earth Day

    April brings us Earth Day and the EPA wants to know what you are doing to protect the environment. What a great way to spread the word about NGV's! They want pictures, photo's and video's that show what you're doing to protect the air, water and reduce your carbon footprint. I know that many of you have solar, wind and other epquipment that makes you more Earth friendly. Share them and include a picture of you with your NGV/s.

    EPA Launches Video/Photo Project in Celebration of Earth Month

    (Washington, D.C. – March 23, 2009) In anticipation of Earth Day, the Environmental Protection Agency today launched an interactive video and photo project asking the public to share the ways they enjoy and protect their environment.

    These projects are part of EPA’s multi-event celebration of Earth Month and of EPA’s 39 year history – which will highlight the agency’s renewed commitment to protecting human health and the environment.

    The EPA is asking filmmakers and photographers around the world to submit their own videos and photos documenting what steps they take to protect the water they drink, the air they breathe and the overall environmental health of their communities.

    Participants can submit their video entries to the EPA’s Earth Day Video Project group on YouTube. Photo entries should be submitted via Flickr.

    Categories in the video project are:
    · Reducing your carbon footprint
    · Conserving and protecting water
    · Protecting the environment
    · Reduce, reuse, recycle

    Categories in the photo project are:
    · People and the environment
    · The beauty of nature
    · Wildlife

    EPA officials will select videos and photos to feature on the website throughout April. The agency will accept videos and photos from today through the end of April.

    This release is the first of several to announce EPA’s planned Earth Month activities.
