Start a Conversation—Write a Letter to the Editor

 

Responding to news articles about environmental issues by writing a letter to the editor of a local paper is a great way to raise awareness about a topic that you’re passionate about. Keep your letter concise, and refer to the article or column that appeared in the paper (or other media.) An easy formula is to use the first short paragraph to explain why the issue is important to you and your community; provide facts, figures, and relevant quotes in a second paragraph; finally, restate your point and make a recommendation in the concluding paragraph.
