Source Reduction Campaign
Aum Amriteswaryai Namah,
Dear Amma's Children,
Earth Day this year focused on the End to Plastic Pollution. Join GreenFriends North America in continuing the celebrations by spending at least 15 minutes this week learning about plastic alternatives!
A wonderful and easy-to-use resource to do this is, a devotee's website, launched in response to the GreenFriends Source Reduction Campaign.
Those of you who calculated and entered a BEFORE footprint will have received reminder emails to enter the AFTER footprint THE DEADLINE IS THIS FRIDAY MAY 4TH. The link to do this is here.
If this is the first time you have heard about this project the link to it is here. It is still possible to participate by calculating your footprint and taking this pledge.

Tour Promotion - Farmers Market
Thinking of heading to a Farmers Market in the next month? Read on!
We need smiley sevites to hand out event postcards to people attending farmers markets in the Seattle area, starting now until Sunday, June 3. This is a great opportunity to soak up the spring sunshine and connect with our community!
Volunteer groups of 1-4 will wander around the farmers market and simply hand out the event postcards. No explanation necessary – just a smile, and “we hope you can come to this event in Bellevue on June 2nd or 3rd” and hand over a card.
Please review the dates and times and locations below, and email if you plan on attending one or more markets. We can start showing up at the Ballard, Capitol Hill and West Seattle markets as soon as this weekend – just pick up your postcards at satsang on Saturday (or we can mail some to you).
