Do you love telling people about that new eco friendly trick you discovered? Are you always trying to conjure up engaging ways to express green ideas?
Then we want you on our team!
What's Your Impact (WYI) is an environmental awareness group whose main goal is to inform people about global warming and what they can do about it as individuals.
Maybe you know the best stores where you can buy local or you're a veteran carpooler with advice to give or even a guru on saving electricity... Whatever your green tips and tricks are, you can help people in your area who are looking to do the same by blogging about your everyday successes! Our blog is a tool to connect people around the world and provide them the information they need to fight climate change.
If you like spreading the news on how people can take small steps that will have a huge impact in the fight against climate change, we want to talk to you!
