princealbert.jpgWe all know the Prince Charles is called ‘the green prince’, but who knew that another royal is a contender for the title? Prince Albert II of Monaco is well-known for supporting plenty of environmental causes, including the United Nations’ new campaign called Plant For The Planet, which aims to plant one billion trees this year to help combat climate change.

He also promptly signed the Kyoto Protocol when he succeeded to the throne nearly two years ago, and has also gone on Arctic expeditions to find out how global warming has been affecting the glaciers. Since then, he has launched a foundation for environmental research, focusing on the rising sea levels. Prince Albert is also involved in socially responsible investing and has launched a fund called the Monaco Environment Development Durable. And last year, the Monaco Yacht Show went carbon neutral.

Monaco may be a small country, but it’s great to see their leader actually taking big steps towards helping the environment. We’d definitely love to see more news and updates about his green projects.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
