It’s My Environment!

Show your appreciation for your environment by participating in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “It’s My Environment” Video Project. The EPA has created this video project in honor of Earth Day, a day to promote appreciation and awareness of Earth’s environment. Participation is easy. Just create a 10-15 second clip where someone off-screen hands you a sign saying “It’s My Environment” (see first link below for printable sign). Hold up the sign and say “It’s My Environment” while doing a small action to protect the environment. As soon as you’re done, pass on the sign to your left. To submit your video, just post a video response on youtube to the EPA’s promotional video (see links below). Check out the promotional video for some samples. The EPA will release a compilation of the clips on April 22nd, 2010 (Earth Day) where it’ll look like the sign is travelling from clip to clip, forming a human chain. Do your part to show how important the environment is to you!
