Music Trio ‘The Gondoliers’ Donate Funds to Venice in Peril
0 Comments

  by Sarah Howell The gorgeous city of Venice, Italy has faced many threats over the years. These threats have been a consistent companion to the inhabitants of the city for generations – overabundant tourism, pollution, flooding, finance, and unemployment, just to name a few. Fortunately there exists a campaign to help ensure that Venice stays preserved for the generations to come. Venice in Peril was founded after the great floods of Venice and Florence in 1966 and helps raise funds to restore and conserve works of art and architecture. Not only that, but proceeds also go toward ensuring the sustainability of Venice and helping to alleviate ecological, demographic, and socio-economic issues. The Fund is supported by many benefactors, both private and corporate, but one such benefactor has a very special tie to the city. Musical trio, “The Gondoliers” consists of Luca, Michael, Claudio, and together these gentlemen capture the sounds and senses of Venice through their smooth, rich, romantic sound. It’s not difficult to see why this group would […]

An Elephant Never Forgets

  An elephant never forgets, and here’s something we should remember about elephants:   They are 76 times more valuable when they’re alive.   Yet many elephants face an unbelievably grim fate: slaughtered for their tusks to be sold on the black market. The killing of African elephants for ivory has been linked to organized crime and even terrorist networks. And here’s the most frightening fact of all: If these animals continue to be hunted at current rates, then in the near future, we will live in a world without elephants. In honor of World Elephant Day (Aug. 12, 2017,) please take the pledge and never forget the true value of an elephant.    TAKE ACTION FOR ELEPHANTS        Did you know that on average, an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory? But it’s not too late to turn things around. Just look at some of the recent news:   •A coalition of 14 African nations united against the ivory trade recently in a vote to close […]

Five Reusable Products to Reduce Waste
0 Comments

by Bianca Cimini When it comes to saving the environment, every little bit counts. While it may be easy to think that whatever you are doing in your life will not affect the greater good of the whole, that couldn’t be any further from the truth. What you do to reduce waste and your carbon footprint does matter, and it can be as simple as a few changes at home. Take a look at these five small changes you can make that will have a positive impact on the environment.  #1: Invest in a reusable water bottle. Instead of buying bottled, fill your own. There are a ton of great options online. Many people opt for the stainless steel reusable bottles.  #2: Bring your own bags shopping. Invest in 3-5 large canvas bags to bring to the grocery store and/or farmer’s market. You’ll eliminate the need for plastic bags.  #3: Stock up on mason jars. If you buy food in bulk (think: beans, rice, lentils, etc.) bring mason jars with […]
