Give Em to Your Eco Peeps : Sierra Club Commemorative Awards


In recognition of the Sierra Club’s crucial work in the protection of our biosphere, we are honored to unveil the Sierra Club commemorative XOEarth Awards – with John Muir and a Buffalo on them.

We invite all lovers of our Earth’s biosphere to copy and share, or print and give, these Sierra Club commemorative XOEarth Awards to your government officials, friends, businesses, customers, volunteers and employees to thank them for their environmental actions – either past or pledged.

The Sierra Club was founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892. Since then the Sierra Club has become the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization — with more than two million members and supporters.

As stated by the Sierra Club, “Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we’ve made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.”

As our XOEarth fans know, we have numerous songs calling for the end of fossil fuel use. We are indebted to the Sierra Club’s major legal and activist work that has slowed down oil and gas extraction across the country.

That’s why we also love that the Sierra Club calls out, “Imagine a world with clean, abundant, affordable energy. One where climate disruption is a fading threat and American soldiers are never again deployed to defend oil fields. One where innovative green industries provide good jobs and supply 100 percent of our energy needs. Imagine a healthier America, with clean air and water, with pristine coasts and protected natural areas. A wealthier, more productive nation, whose leaders answer only to the citizens who elect them. This is America beyond oil.”

Our XOEarth songwriters have written two songs against coal mining. So we also applaud Sierra Club in their legal and grassroots work to stop coal mining. They say, “Coal is our country’s dirtiest energy source, from mining to burning to disposing of coal waste. Our campaign is uniting grassroots activists across the country to move America Beyond Coal.”

We did a Buffalo version as well to honor the Sierra Club for their work in protection of habitat of our nation’s wildlife and their ecosystems.

We at XOEarth could go on and on about how much we appreciate the Sierra Club. But for now, check out Sierra Club to find out for yourself, take action with them and donate to them.

For all the life, Stele Ely
