Our friends at the Canary Project have recently launched a new initiative, called Green Patriot Posters. Taking inspiration from posters during WWII promoting conservation of materials for use in the war effort, they're asking Americans both famous (Michael Beirut, DJ Spooky) and regular (you and me) to submit posters encouraging conservation and environmentalism now.You can submit your own on the site (see some below) and other users can vote on their favorites. Big vote-getters and other favorites will be distributed through a variety of channels. Michael Beirut's first entries-calling for more posters and for the creation of green-collar jobs-were plastered all over buses in Cleveland.


Check it out. Perhaps you have a cool poster idea that will end up being seen by millions.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
