The Millionaires club where green is glam

This is a millionaires club with a big difference. Its not about how many millions you have but how many millions we don't need.....that is the 1 Million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming.

Sure we've heard about the effects of climate change but how do we, each and every one of us make a change so that WE are part of the solution and not part of the problem. Surely we are astounded by the statistics and the imagery, the tsunami's and the weather in our own cities but are we taking responsibility and doing our bit. Do we even know what our bit really is?

If one woman has the power to transform the world then collectively we can create great change in our own lives and on the planet. I am once again reminded that life does not change if I am observing from the sidelines and wondering why no one is doing anything about it.

The question is am I, and are you?

Climate change is real and it is transforming the way we live and the way society operates. Science is telling us that we are on course for a climate disaster and there is a great urgency to take action now. There are no excuses to not act and there is extraordinary power in women joining forces and working together.

Many months ago I "accidently" came across 1 Million Women a campaign of daughters, mothers, sisters and grandmothers - Committed to protecting our climate, our communities and our future and leading change for the better.

Their goal is to inspire 1 million Australian women to take practical action on climate change by cutting 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming. Every woman who joins has a personal goal to cut 1 tonne of CO2 from their daily lives within a year of joining the campaign. 1 Million Women - a million tonnes of CO2. It's a huge challenge.

Through such unity of purpose, women here in Australia can influence women around the world. I'm in!! So join me and the other incredible women who are leading the way.....www.1millionwomen.com.au
