GE (together with BBDO, SocialVibe and SpeedShape) have launched a new digital campaign to get you thinking about the environment with a photo project called “Tag Your Green”. GE hopes the project will inspire people to share new “green” ideas and connect with others by watching, commenting and uploading photos and videos on Flickr and YouTube.  GE, together with Howcast, started the Ecomagination YouTube Video Challenge, for which 15 popular YouTubers (like iJustine, 2nd video below) were invited to collaborate with their fans and come up with videos that brings the notion of “green” into different locations, contexts and situations. Is this a smart use of GE’s resources? How does getting the public involved help this cause?  Are there parts of this project that you could discuss with your family and friends to help the environment in your local community?  Explain your answers.

    Yes, i think i could talk about this with my family. It would be a good thing because it would help our environment. And the more people we talk to the more people know which means they will tell there friends and so on. So i do think it would be a good thing.

    Yeah i guess because of the fact that by getting the community together than we no for sure they’ll help and there will be people involved. But they will have to do it a lot of places to get more people together to help save the world and be green.

    Yes i think it is. If they can get going green out there more, the more people will go green. The public helps, because people can do more than we think. If there’s one person out of every five, just imagine how many that is. Yes, I think I could discuss going green with them.

    I think this is completely smart of General Electric. It would help our environment. This is also a thing we could talk to our parents about this. Also if you tell your friends and they tell their parents, then their parents switch to GE then that’s even more help for the environment.

    I like the idea because it would get more people into it. But there would be some things people could come up with and then other might disagree and start something. I think i could talk about something like this to my family. we all need to start saving energy.

    I think this is a good idea. The public involved helps because we can save the earth and make it more cleaner than what people try to make it. Yes parts I could talk to my friends and family about is to tell them to always throw their trash and stuff on the ground that way our environment won’t look trashy and dirty. We need to save energy too. We need to start a new life for the earth with GE.

    Yes, because they have to do with the environment and that will persuade people to care about there environment. It could help this cause by teaching and helping the environment. Yes because the local community is the best place to start out and then it can grow bigger. If i asked my mom, or dad, i am pretty sure that they will say yes.

    I think it is a smart idea i guess. I think that it will make some people want to start to worry about the environment. I like this idea because it’s giving people ideas about how to help the environment around them. I think that if some people actually took the time to tell their family and friends about it, then they would help too. By getting the public involved it helps people be aware of what the environment will come to if people don’t start watching what they do.

    Yeah I think getting the public involved will help because they may tell a friend about this and they might tell their family and they might tell their friends and family until everyone knows about Ge. The more people know about GE I think the more people will actually go green. Lets say that a family was able to get their whole community to go green, soon another community will want to do the same so will other communities.

    i think that this is a really good idea to use GE this way because people get to share something about our environment which is a good thing. i think that getting everyone involved in this will help our world because people will see how other people do it. this can also help our world because people will see how easy it is to pick up anything that can be in our world in the floor. the way they are using GE is also a good way because that can get more people to help every one do the job. when the people that are doing nothing see that most of the people are helping they can probably go and help too.

    (A) one traditional way of communicating before cellphones was there was righting a litter. another way is going and talking to people.
    (B) well righting a litter takes a long (depending on how long the litter is) and is so boring. going and talking to people also could take a long time (depending on how far that person is) and maybe people don’t have the time to, so they text
    (C) bast on what we’ve been talking about with the new phones texting will probably progress. talking on a phone will reredos to almost nothing. there might be a new way of communication but who know of sure.

    Yes this a smart use of GE. Getting the public involved helps because we need more and more people to help everyone else with this project. We could go around and pick up all the trash we see. We could recycle more things then we do now. And turn off electricity and water when not in use. Together we can make our world green again.

    yes because we need help with all the environment things. like rivers oceans and more. because if we get more people it will help the environment because more people will be cleaning up beach’s and stuff. no because we as a people need to clean up the stuff.

    This is a good way to use GE resources. Because people can see the videos and think it is fun to do. There are some parts that you can explain to your family to help the community. Like you can tell them and show them that they can help make a change. And after that they would probably want to participate in this resources.

    I think that this is a great source of GE’s resources because they are really trying to make a change in the world. I think that this is a great idea to get people to go green. People get to list their ideas and try to get other people to go green and help the environment. Getting the public involved in this project is only the first step in getting people to help the environment and change the world. this project is really great idea that i believe will change the world.

    It is a very smart idea. The reason is that there are lots of Youtubers. It helps for people to save the world together. Not just a regular cause can save the world. You need lots of people. I would discuss this except we already did. We are saving energy by turning everything off.

    Well i think it depends on where and excaly whats they depend on doing with the GE resources because some people really dont care about the enviornment but if you supose to put it in a place that people may actualy care and they may take action in the GE resources. I think it gets the public involved because more matters equals more people to fix them matters. I could atempt to take to my family and friends about that matter but there most people i know really dont care.
