Like-Minded Organizations: The Media’s Influence on Social Issues

The EPIC Awards, presented by the Whitehouse Project,  honors outstanding efforts to promote images of powerful women leaders in popular culture. The event recognizes culture changers who have used film, television, theater, sports, and advertising, to create dynamic images of women leaders in American public life. 

The Genesis Awards honors outstanding individuals in the major media for raising awareness of animal issues to the mainstream consciousness. The Genesis Awards is presented by The Humane Society of the United States/Hollywood Office. WOMEN SOLIDARITY USA got its inspiration from the Genesis Awards. 

The EMA Awards, presented by the Environmental Media Association, honors film and television productions and individuals that increase public awareness of environmental issues and inspires personal action on these issues. The awards recognize writers, producers, directors, actors, and others in the entertainment industry actively expressing their concern for the environment through their work.

Founded by actress Geena Davis in 2004, “The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media focuses first on getting more females and more varied portrayals of both female and male characters into movies, TV, and other media aimed at kids 11 and under. The Institute is a resource for the entertainment industry (media companies, animators, writers, producers, and others), the next generation of content-creators, and the public. We outreach to these individuals and companies towards supporting positive change in media, so young girls and young boys can grow up treating each other as equals. Our approach is collaborative, friendly, and cooperative.”

Green Cleaning Products: Conventional Brands Becoming Eco-Friendlier

 Many people want to use earth friendly cleaning products to avoid  products that are harmful to themselves, animals, and the earth. Some people make their own, or buy them at a store like Whole Foods. Some people just want the convenience of going to their local grocery or discount store to purchase their cleaning products. There are now products on the market that I assume from what I read on the packages, that are ecologically friendly and can be bought more commonly at conventional local stores.  Check out your local grocery, drug, and discount stores for these common brand names like Burt’s Bees, Tom’s of Maine, and Seventh Generation. Arm & Hammer manufactures Arm & Hammer Essentials laundry soap, fabric softener sheets, and cleaners, and Purex has their Natural Elements laundry detergent. Palmolive manufactures eco+ dishwasher detergent, and Clorox has their Green Works line. Please be aware that Arm & Hammer and the manufacturer of Purex tests on animals. I don’t know if Clorox and the manufacturer of Palmolive does, so there are alternatives out there. Environmentalists caution you to read the labels on the green products you see, and be aware of possible greenwashing.
