A green ribbon for climate

All the versions of this article: [English] [Castellano]

Next April 22, the Earth Day will be celebrated. For this reason, the environmental organizations suggest to wear a green ribbon to attract the attention, of citizens, medias and those who decide, to the waste of energy and the urgency to take actions. Climate change is something that must carry weight in the political debate.

Why a green ribbon?
Green is the colour of life and hope. It has been used since long time ago to define the conscious vitalism of those who feel responsible for the problems that affect us.

How to make a ribbon?
It is enough to use a green ribbon by folding it at the top into an inverted "V" shape and inserting a safety pin through the centre. It can be accompanied by the symbol “Save our climate”.

The international symbol Save our climate reflects the impulse and the willingness to solve the problem of climate change. It is promoted by Ecologistas en Acción, SEO/BirdLife, WWF/Adena, Greenpeace, Amigos de la Tierra and other entities with the purpose of trying to attract the attention with regard to all the initiatives against greenhouse effect.
