Going Green: Green For All

In 2006, renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies generated 8.5 million new jobs and more than $100 billion in profits. So where do these new green economy jobs come from? One group has an answer.

Green For All is helping to build a green economy through job creation, training, and entrepreneurial opportunities, especially for people from disadvantaged communities. That means they're fighting poverty and pollution at the same time.

Many companies are already weatherizing buildings, installing solar panels and putting up wind turbines.

You can get involved on September 27. Green Jobs Now in partnership with Green For All, 1Sky and the We Campaign is hosting a National Day of Action, which will empower everyday people to hold hundreds of grass roots events to support green jobs.

So check out greenforall.org and greenjobsnow.com for more information about the National Day of Action on September 27. It's a great way to for all of us to get involved to help build a cleaner, more sustainable economy.
