Greenpeace ask you to show the forests some love

Greenpeace has an important mission for you: to show the European Commission how much you love forests!

Why? they explain it on their website:

The European Commission has delayed a vital vote on protecting forests from illegal logging till September. We want to make sure the commissioners don't forget about it during their summer holiday. We need you to help us make an extra impression before the September vote.

We all love the forests, and we would like to showcase all that love to the EU (and we know for a fact that the
EU doesn’t have anything against some loving). The forests already have made an effort themselves!

And this is the mission they have for you:

Take pictures and/or videos of yourself and your friends spreading the love in a forest.
Submit your pictures in the
flickr group or post your video as an answer to ours. They will use these photos to make a collaborative video that they’ll show the European Commission in September.

And there's also a great example to what exactly Greenpeace mean by spreading the love in a forest (btw - if you want to see more of their excellent videos, check out eco-tube):

You're also invited to send a petition to the President of the European Commission from Greenpeace website.

So let's show the forests some love and hopefully it will pay off in Septemeber!
