It’s Polar Bear Week! ʕ ´ᴥ`ʔ
Today is the start of Polar Bear Week, a yearly event that takes place during the polar bear migration in Churchill, Canada. Polar Bear Week focuses on how increased ice-free seasons are forcing polar bears to fast for longer, straining the limits of their fat reserves.
Polar Bears International has these great ideas below on how you can get involved with Polar Bear Week:
Monday, November 4 – Start your week with some inspiration by watching the Polar Bear Cam on our My Planet, My Part page. Or tune into one of our live or archived Tundra Connections webcasts.
Tuesday, November 5 – Commit to buying local, sustainable products whenever you can. Support small stores, co-ops, thrift shops, and farmer’s markets.
Wednesday, November 6 – Reduce your consumption by buying less. When shopping, ask yourself, Do I need this?
Thursday, November 7 – Support companies that operate sustainably. Visit the Climate Counts website for ratings in fields from computers to airlines to clothing.
Friday, November 8 – Contact your elected officials. Let them know you support action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Saturday, November 9 – Celebrate Polar Bear Week with a Polar Party. Talk about the actions you’re taking to reduce your carbon footprint—and encourage your guests to do the same.
Sunday, November 10 – Commit to becoming involved in making your school, business, or community more sustainable. If you don’t have recycling at work, start a program. If your city doesn’t have a farmer’s market, start one.
