There are many, many ways an environmental volunteer can impact the issues they care about. One of the volunteers I met while writing my book volunteered for political campaigns, working for candidates who supported the environmental policies that she also supported. She made sure that the person elected was someone who had similar values and would protect and preserve her kinds of environmental interests. Leading up to the midterm elections next month, the League of Conservation Voters is mobilizing its members to do the same thing. The operation is called GreenRoots and it’s aimed at making sure candidates who will work for the environment are elected in a number of key Senate races. It is another way that people passionate about the environment can work, as a volunteer, to protect it.
