Pinterest for the Environment

A friend says his colleagues are beginning to "succumb to Pinterest". In my new position for the nonprofit EarthShare, I get to manage our online presence and after hearing about the explosive growth of the social networking site, I quickly set up an account for them.

In my last post, I mentioned how environmental challenges like climate change benefit from creative forms of storytelling. Though the popularity of "cute animal" pins make me a little cynical, I have found ways to engage others through images. Images of both the things we want to move away from and the things that capture the world we want to live in. You can follow my pins here, or check out the pinners I'm following (most of whom are related to the environment).
