thegreenrock.ca Green Tips #2 – green at home

Video

as it happens here in St. John’s, warm weather is not a distant memory this November 2.  lovely as the sunny skies and warm winds are, it’s a call to ramp up the green living at home.  perfect for thegreenrock.ca’s CCNL Green Team’s second Green Tips vid.  Join David as he talks about compost, saving energy, and what to do with hazardous waste.

As well as hosting, David Maher did the editng and music, with Tamara Segura and Chris Ball co-directing and doing videography.

in July and August 2014 thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon.  Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.

Weather & Climate Change in black and white

Video

weather / climate change

when people grumble about the weather here in Newfoundland and Labrador, as they sometimes do, the standard conclusion (redemption?) is ‘we don’t live here for the weather’.

talk of global warming and climate change can seem like a problem far far away.  climate change is normal, right?  hot days in Newfoundland and Labrador are good, right?  icebergs are fabulous for tourism, right?   yes yes yes, but there is the biggest kind of a butt to it:  the hottting up too fast is not going to go well for us in the big picture.  not well at all.

This vid isn’t about doom, it’s about understanding what is happening all around us. music and animation by Jeff Smyth, produced by David Maher, voice of Megan Stuckless (Senior Public Education and Outreach Officer of Conservation Corps NL).  Neat, sweet in black and white.  (first of a series – keep an eye out for the next vid!).

today is fall, and time for the work done in summer 2014 by the Conservation Corps NL thegreenrock.ca Green Team to roll out!

in July and August the gang of four – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon.  Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.

in this vid join David as he talks the talk and walks the walk in the old east end of St. John’s.  he’s live about Green Tips – simple to make green easy.  watch as he whips out the water bottle, and where does that Metrobus pass come from?  also notice the beaming sun of St. John’s in July.  original guitar music by Chris, Tamara is filming, and Jeff directed and produced.

Watch. Like. Share.  Sustain.
