SUMMER FOR THE GREEN AT HEART
– Website offers healthy, ecological alternatives

KINGSTON, Ontario – June 10, 2004 – Planet-Friendly today announced the launch of A Planet-Friendly Summer, an online gateway to healthy, affordable and environmentally friendly summer activities.

"These are inspiring alternatives to the usual summer hype", says Planet-Friendly Coordinator, Peter Blanchard. "You can find everything from grassroots festivals to natural health retreats, outdoors activities, green travel, organic events, and terrific volunteer opportunities."

This free, nonprofit resource is aimed at Canadians of all ages. It will be of interest to anyone who wants enjoyable summer experiences, but doesn't want to leave their healthy values at home.

The website includes a calendar; a directory of "Eco-Experience Places"; organic travel opportunities; a "Green Travel and Recreation" directory; volunteer and employment listings; plus links to related resources around the world.

"Many of these things aren't easy to find", says Blanchard, "because they don't have big budgets or commercial sponsors. We want to help everyone explore – and participate in – these green alternatives".
