Happy Earth Day from RENEWPR!
With a name like RENEWPR, you'd think that it was Earth Day every day for us. And it pretty much is. But we're always happy to see worldwide attention focused on the important priorities related to protecting the planet we all call home. Today's signing of the Paris Agreement in New York is a terrific way to mark the day and will be a launching pad for new and continuing conversations about the policies required to balance environmental protection with economic and social development.
On a smaller, but still national scale, we're always happy to see organizations across the spectrum focused on observing Earth Day and addressing what it means for us as fellow inhabitants of planet Earth. So we were thrilled when the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) invited us to talk about what Earth Day might mean to LGBT businesses and why the day is important to LGBT people.
RENEWPR is a proud member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and our local chapter (the Capital Area Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce) and a certified LGBT Business Enterprise.
Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think about the themes of respect and community that we think resonate for both Earth Day and the LGBT community. And Happy Earth Day!
