The Center for a New American Dream is a very cool group helping people to live consciously, buy wisely, and make a difference.
Living consciously means getting more of what really matters in life, being aware of what’s going on around you, finding balance, and having a little fun while you’re at it.
Buying wisely means becoming a positive force in the marketplace, using your purchasing power to support business practices that are safer for the environment and better for people.
Making a difference is all about making sure your citizen voices are heard, being active in your community and letting policymakers know where you stand.
So it’s all the stuff you want to do anyways, they just sort of facilitate.
I’m a member, in case you didn’t already guess. Anyways, right now, if you join up (it’s free, you don’t get spammed, and no commitments) you automatically get entered to win a ten-day, nine-night trip for two to Costa Rica, complete with airfare, carbon offsets, domestic transportation, activities, and lodging at swanky eco-resorts.
I could use a ten-day vacation at a swanky eco-resort. I know you could too, so why not give it a go?
