Day 2: #AskEPA - Earth Month Twitter Chats

During Earth Month, April 2013, you can join EPA for environmental Twitter chats. We'll have a different environmental topic each time, with EPA experts to discuss the topic and respond to questions. You can learn more about the issues, participate in the discussion, and find out what you can do.

Schedule and topics
  • Monday, April 22nd at 2:00pm EDT: Climate Change: What You Can Do
    Every day our actions affect the planet. Experts from our Office of Air and Radiation will be joining us on
    Earth Day to talk about what we can all do at home, in the office, and on the road to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help protect the planet. Let’s work together to protect our communities from the effects of climate change now and in the future.
To participate, at the starting time, sign into your Twitter account and submit a question on the topic using hashtag #AskEPA. We'll respond to as many Tweets and questions on the topic as possible. You can also submit a question in advance - read the blog post about the Twitter chats and leave a comment with your question.
If you aren't a Twitter user, you can still follow the chat online by going to twitter.com/epalive when the chat begins.

=====================

THIS WEEKEND:  Join us in New York City for our Green Festival on April 20 and 21.  Can't make it?  Follow the festivities via social media this time around. Online editor Andrew Korfhage will be live-blogging the event all weekend long, and sharing news from the Green Festival via Facebook and Twitter.

NEXT WEEK: Our Climate Action director Todd Larsen points out that the 45-day State Department comment period on their endorsement of the Keystone XL Pipeline ends next Tuesday, April 22.  If you haven't sent your comments yet, please do so!

MAY 4 - 19:  Our Fair Trade director Elizabeth O'Connell encourages all Green Americans to get involved in World Fair Trade Day events, coming up in early May.  World Fair Trade Day itself is May 11, with events around the country over a two-week period. And speaking of May, if following the Green Festival online this weekend inspires you to attend one in person, we'll be taking Green Festival to Chicago the weekend of May 18 and 19.  We hope you can join us, and can spread the word to all of your friends in the Midwest too.

Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
