RUSTLE THE LEAF is an online outreach that uses syndication-quality, weekly comic strips and other creative tools to communicate essential environmental themes and truths. Our goals are to encourage environmentalists, to facilitate the sharing of environmental views in an engaging, nonconfrontational manner, and to introduce and reinforce environmental education with people ages 6 to 106.
We 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.
Less 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.
If 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 our future.
All 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.
Thanks for your interest in Rustle and in the Earth...
