Happy Groundhog Day!

Since this day is one of the few days dedicated to an aspect of nature, it's a good reminder to get outside and remember that you are a part of nature. Hopefully you'll see your shadow too!

Here's the news from our pad:

1. For all of you who drive vehicles or work in the automotive industry, our annual Eco-Auto Campaign will get hopping again in March. Together, we can help end the “big oil game” with a combination of conservation practices and new automotive technologies that are already here! According to a comprehensive study published by the Rocky Mountain Institute, we can give our economy a huge boost in the process. When you begin practicing Eco-Auto tips, you are part of the solution. When you sponsor Eco-Auto Tips on radio, you help reach people behind the wheel with these solutions. A combination of nationally syndicated radio programs and numerous websites from educators and sponsors will be published carrying Eco-Auto Tips, beginning in March. For starters, check out this resource: www.oilendgame.org .

2. Recently, our President, David Winkelman met Robert Redford through the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy. “Bob” encouraged us to hurry up and start our Frog Friendly television tips, because in his words, “We need to tell more stories about conservation in fun and compelling manners.” Well, I couldn't agree more, and all my tadpoles are excited about me being on television. Hopefully, he will join our team of television advisors. So, starting in 2005, The WATER Foundation will be looking for sponsors for Bog Frog Tips on television. The initial Charter Sponsors will be getting some sweetheart deals! Get a jump on your competitors and contact us if you are interested.

3. Are you recycling your spent batteries? Rechargeable Batteries are now being recycled near you: Check out www.hopshop.net for more information and find a place near you. There are now over 30,000 retail and community collection locations that participate in rechargeable battery recycling (and cell phone recycling) program, thanks to the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC). They deserve a tremendous round of applause from everyone concerned with conservation. They now have more than 300 manufacturers and marketers of portable rechargeable batteries and products committed to recycling. The rechargeable power industry's commitment to reduce pollution, conserve natural resources and prevent rechargeable batteries from entering the solid waste stream has grown significantly because of RBRC. For more information, call 1-877-2-RECYCLE or visit www.call2recycle.org Frog Friendly kudos to RBRC!
