Green Hearts at Bloomfield College go all out for 350 Day of Action

As the 350 Day of Action quickly approaches, several organizations are preparing for their events to show their support for the 350 movement. The Green Hearts Environmental Movement will be hosting an event for the Global Day of Climate Action on October 24th, on the Bloomfield College Quad. Students, faculty, friends and family will gather to express the importance of making a change when it comes to global warming and being eco-friendly.

The day will consist of many events starting with a march to the college's Foley Field to form a 350. A picture of this will then be uploaded to, and with other pictures from similar gatherings on that day, it will be turned into a virtual petition given to world leaders in December at the climate conference in Copenhagen. Other events that day will include relay races for green prizes and a carbon footprint workshop held by Green Hearts. Other local environmental groups will also be present, including the Sierra Club. Environmental activist, Gray Russell from the Montclair Environmental Commission will also be present, who has worked with Al Gore, the Essex County Greens, and Barbara Conover of the Sierra Club. To find out more about this event go to their twitter or blog page.

Good luck to all those who are planning or participating in an event on October 24th. To find out more about Day of Action, or to locate an event near you, check out their website.
