Have you given up flying for the planet?
If so, please join us in the TURTLES DON'T FLY
Air travel has a heavy impact on climate change. It is so carbon-intensive that each commercial flight undoes nearly 20 years of recycling. For folks who have given up flying for the planet, you can join us in the Turtles Don't Fly Cooperative. You'll join with others who share your commitment and your willingness to sacrifice convenience for our children's home planet. You'll also become a decision-maker and help us determine where to spend our Earth Tax - 1% For The Planet - each year.

Build your local food network.
