Green Tweeters

The environment needs our help.   There is undeniable proof that global warming is real, and negatively impacting our world.   It is our responsibility to live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle.  At SocialEarth we believe social media, specifically Twitter, can be a powerful tool for educating people and cultivating support.  Previously, we’ve highlighted the top social entrepreneurs and microfinance people and organizations on Twitter, and now we want to highlight the top Green tweeters on Twitter.   These tweeters fall in a variety of categories including green news, green fashion, green lifestyle tips, and others.  Follow them.  Retweet them.  Support them.  Their work is more important  now than ever before.  If your tweets support the environment, please add your name in the comments!

    Hello Erik
    WOW I just wanted to say a very big thank you for listing WWF_Climate twitter so high. Am very touched and humbled that we have managed to get such a big shout. This being the year of climate change it is amazing to see how much the medis is now reporting on all things green. Even a few years ago this would not have been the case.
    Again thank you and many of the other twitters listed are fantastic so well done on a great list.
    Cheers Claire

  10. Ceebie October 27, 2009 at 6:20 am ·

    I'd suggest adding @NatureConsCDA to your list of green orgs…But that would make your list 141 long :)

  16. Erikeliason October 27, 2009 at 3:02 pm ·

    Thanks Claire. We love the work (& tweets) you do. I think many of the of the organizations on the list have a similar challenge of educating & engaging people in their cause. We here at SocialEarth are trying to inform citizens of the work they do. Awareness is the first step to change.

    I don’t understand some of the choices on here, GreenInc, for example, has 15 followers and no tweets. Why is that an important account to follow?

  39. The David Brower Ctr April 22, 2011 at 5:51 pm ·

    Follow @BrowerCenter, LEED Platinum building, conference center and eco-art Gallery in downtown Berkeley.

    Have a green week everyone!
