THE LEAF is an online outreach
that uses syndication-quality, weekly comic
strips and other creative tools to communicate

views in an engaging, nonconfrontational
manner, and to introduce and reinforce environmental
education with people ages 6 to 106.
live in challenging times: meaningful discussions
about conservation, pollution and use of
resources have been reduced to oversimplified
sound bites, political positioning, and
pejorative labels like 'tree hugger.' Populations
are getting larger. Consumers the world-over
are craving and demanding a lifestyle similar
to what they see portrayed in the Pop Culture
of North America. Alarmingly, we know --
for a fact -- that the Earth's resources
can't support unbridled growth without serious
changes in how we all live, use fuel, produce
goods and services and grow crops.
fossil fuel being burned. Less exhaust gas
choking our atmosphere. Less wasted irrigation
water. Less persistent poison like petroleum
distillates and chlorine compounds being
used and diffused into our world. More talking
about problems. Less fighting about them.
More conservation. More education. More
valuing this amazing, miraculous Earth and
its ability to support us all. Put simply,
Rustle the Leaf is about all of that.
these issues are important to you, we invite
you to keep reading our comics, to share
them with friends and coworkers, and even
to consider (if appropriate) linking our
content to your site. Rustle and his pals
may seem like simple cartoons, but we know
they are far more...They are engaging, memorable,
straight-talking ambassadors for our cause...and
of us at Rustle the Leaf hope you'll enjoy
visiting our site, and hope that -- because
of Rustle -- you'll become more interested
in helping to preserve, protect and heal
this world that has been placed in our care.
for your interest in Rustle and in the Earth...
