Friends of Hugh Manatee

Fifty-one years ago, April 22nd was the first Earth Day in 1970. Things are worse than ever with cracks in the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, coral bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef off Australia, wildfires in the Northwest and in California USA, drought some places and downpours of unrelenting rain in other places. Scientists know the planet is heating up due to the burning of fossil fuels and rising CO2 in the atmosphere. That is why it is time to display this mascot which shows people are doing good things for the planet.

If you want to share your enthusiastic support for earth-friendly practices, tell your friends about Hugh Manatee and proudly display this mascot. Have them visit the gift shop when it opens. We're just getting started.

We will work hard to spread the acceptance of the icon as the standard-bearer of green initiatives and, as more and more people have it appear on items they purchase, the Hugh Manatee icon will inspire people to take steps to do more for the planet in their own lives...first by buying earth-friendly products or joining the ranks of activism. By taking more green initiatives every day, teaching kids and influencing their neighbors to do more good things, Hugh Manatee will catch on. The more we see the icon to remind us that we all need to be more environmentally responsible, the more we can track how these efforts helps the ability of the earth to sustain humanity. 

The planet is fragile and if we all embrace Hugh Manatee, our world will be a better place to live for all of us and for generations to come.

Just something to think about 
It would be great if Hugh Manatee became so popular that there would be a HUGH MANATEE" helium balloon for a future New York Thanksgiving Day or a float in the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena (there is a 3-year waiting list and it must be an established icon). I can't wait for this to really take off.
