My 5: Sophia Douglas, Freelance Writer, Grassroots Activist
At the Natural Living Expo in Des Moines last weekend, Blue Planet Green Living (BPGL) met several interesting people. We asked some of them to respond to two questions. We’ll be posting the responses over the next few weeks.
Our first responses come from Sophia Douglas, who wears several hats in her professional life. Douglas is the call screener for the Fallon Forum, a talk radio show that discusses issues of importance to Iowans. She adds, “I am currently a freelance writer. I am politically active and also spend a lot of time volunteering for Organizing for America (OFA), the President’s grassroots organization. We have spent a large portion of the past year working on getting health care reform passed.” The following are Douglas’s responses to our questions.
BPGL: What are the five most important things we can do to save the planet?
- The obvious: drive less.
- Consume less.
- Grow something — whether it be a tree or a little plant on your desk, but grow something.
- Look for sustainable energy sources in general
- Share. The earth is on loan to us. Think of future generations.
2 Minutes with the President
BPGL: If you could spend 2 minutes with President Obama, what would you say to him?
DOUGLAS: First of all, I would thank him for all that he is trying to do to change our country for the better, and the world, for that matter. Then, I would pray with him because I want him to be kept safe. We need him around for at least 7 more years or 2 terms!
