November eNews from EarthShare Oregon

Did you know you're an ecohero, EarthShare Supporter?

We've been reflecting on all that has happened this month, and what it means for everyone and everything we care about. What it means for us. What it means for you. What it means for the planet.

There's much to consider, much to talk about, and much to do.

But today, more than anything, we want to let you know that we think you're an ecohero...


...and we simply want to say, "Thank you."
