Happy Earth Day Oysters! Today is Earth Day’s 40th anniversary and green is so hot right now. Have you seen our logo? We’re always trying to be a little greener around here at Oy!Chicago, so allow me to share some of the fun things we’ve been up to through the years to help sustain our lovely planet.
Managing Blogger, Cheryl Jacobs:
Not only is Cheryl the Marketing and Communications Manager at JUF, but she is also the 45th Vice President of the United States and an award winning documentarian. Cheryl has been involved with the environment since before her birth when she joined the United States House of Representatives in 1976 and held the first congressional hearings on the climate change. Her film, An Inconvenient Truth, is the fifth-highest-grossing documentary film to date in the United States. As you can see, Cheryl is green from an environmental standpoint as well as a dolla-dolla bills standpoint. Cheryl is currently the founder and chair of Alliance for Climate Protection.
Blogger, Jane Charney:
Jane is a primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, UN Messenger of Peace, and staff writer for JUF News. She is rather well-known for her 45-year study of chimpanzee social interactions in Tanzania. Among her many accomplishments, she remains the only human ever accepted into chimpanzee society. Jane mastered the art of the written word in 1978, which was, unfortunately, one year after establishing the Jane Goodall Institute. The requested spelling correction to the ‘Jane Charney Institute’ has yet to be put in place. Jane devotes practically all of her time to advocacy on behalf of chimpanzees and the environment.
Blogger, Ron Krit:
Ron is a superstar both in the gym as a personal trainer and on the big screen as a successful actor. While he rakes in millions of dollars, he also dishes out thousands of dollars for environmental causes. Ron is praised by environmental groups for choosing to fly on commercial flights instead of hiring private jets. He advocates that global warming is "the number one environmental challenge" and that blue cheese will kill your waist line.
Blog Administrator and Photo Editor, Lindsey Bissett:
Lindsey, popularly known as “Lindsey the Science Gal” (rhyming has never been her strong suit), is a photographer, comedian, television host, science educator and mechanical engineer. She’s best known for her Disney children’s science show from the 90’s. When in character as "the Science Gal", Lindsey wears a light blue lab coat and a bow tie and takes on the personality of an excited science educator. She has made numerous guest appearances on TV shows, including Larry King Live to discuss global warming, America’s Most Smartest Model and The Climate Code and is currently the host of Stuff Happens on the Green Network.
If you can guess who we really are, you get a big green thumbs up! Happy Earth Day!
