The Fur Council of Canada Wants You to Consider a New Vision of Fur

On Thursday afternoon, my TV class screened the features that we had all been working on during the past week.

My group (#3) focused on the Downtown Ottawa Transit Tunnel. It went really well, except for that one hiccough during filming when we were ordered off the property at Blair station. It was alright though, we didn’t cause a scene.

One of the most interesting features covered the Fur Council of Canada’s new Fur is Green campaign.

They offer an interesting take on why wearing fur is actually ecofriendly:

Green Fur? To each his own I guess. I wonder if PETA has caught on to this.


A Guide to Living with Greenpeace

I Get a Hemp T-Shirt

On Sunday I was stopped outside of the Rideau Centre by a man working for Greenpeace. Normally I don’t stop for people who are handing out flyers, or strangers who are beaming at you, clipboard in hand. But, I was in such a great mood, my friend and I stopped to see what he was all about.

He was trying to recruit more members. Alright, that sounds ok. We get a newsletter, and The Greenpeace Living Guide which is printed on recycled paper with vegetable ink.

To be legitimate members, I guess we have to contribute some money. The sun was shining for the first time in Ottawa for a while. It was a beautiful day. So I signed up, and agreed to contribute $12 monthly. It won’t break the bank, and I get a Hemp shirt!

Oh Greenpeace, you had me at vegetable ink.
