[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

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.

A)Is this a smart use of GE’s resources?

B)How does getting the public involved help this cause?

C)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.

      so be eco-friendly and if you’re thinking that its going to take a lot of work dont think that start small like instead of using paper plates use eco-friendly glass plates they’re fancy and it helps the enivorment.

    A. yes i think that this is a excellent use of GE resources because what will happen if our world gets full of trash and don’t get cleaned people will start to get sick and the death rate will increase
    B.getting the people involved will help because we have a massive world full of people that litter and full of people that help clean up so i think that this is a good idea for the people to help because the more help and support the longer we have to live on this beautiful world called earth
    C. yes this is what this project is for is for people to start helping and support and let people know what is going on and to let other people know what you have done to help keep our city and seas clean and son i will make sure to tell everyone about this project because i want to help and i also want to have a cleaner fresher earth to live on

    A. IT IS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE TONS OF PEOPLE WATCH YOUTUBE EVERY DAY. THEY WILL GET TONS OF SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO GET.

    B. GETTING THE PUBLIC INVOLVED HELPS THEM BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE ENVIRONMENT. IF THEY WANT PEOPLE TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING THEY WILL SENCE THEIR PUTTING VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE.

    C. YES, BECAUSE I COULD TELL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO PLANT A TREE. AND FOR THEM TO TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY. OR I COULD THEN TELL THEM TO TELL THEIR FRIENDS AND FOR THEIR FRIENDS TO TELL THEIR FRIENDS TO DO SOMETHING GREEN. THIS IS WHAT I THINK AND HOPE I GET A FOUR.

    a)yes this is a good thing because it will teach kids and adults from all over the world to go Eco friendly and to help and try to save the environment that is left,and people will know finally how much keeping the world clean means to a lot of people around the world.
    b)getting the public involved may help this cause because the more people there is to help clean the environment the more healthier the planet is and the more cleaner all of us will be.more and more people will want to succeed in what they do and the thought of cleaning up our planet could save many animals and save the water in which some may live.
    c)yes there is many things that you could talk to your family about to save the environment for instance.
    -recycling anything that you can,cleaning up any trash that you see,help to not dirty up the water that our animals live in,there is many ways to go green ad we are the next generation so we need to build the world up right. GO GREEN..

    a. yes, it is a good idea because it will have people get ideas and comment on youtube good ways to go green.

    c.yes. thats what the whole projects about… having people get involved with the earth and make new ideas to help clean it up. i mean we live here, so we should help clean it up.

    B. when the public is involved there could be alot more ideas that come up and there is just more people so thats a good thing. the saying goes “the more the marrier”
    C. my family isnt really the green type so i don’t think i would share any of these ideas with them and i would love to go green and try to support the environment i would just have to think about what to do to help it though

    A) Yes i do because it get us to want to do it.

    B) it helps by showing us how easy it is to get involved. And how fun it can be just to help the world. and they show us how we can try to be friendly to our earth.

    C) well im not really sure because i don’t get involved with this kind of stuff. but if i had to choose i would say yes. Cuz they use really people to do this. they don’t use computer people to do this. they make it to were we can do it to we just have to step up and try. for example i could start to grow my own garden and eat the fresh fruit an vegetables that i have planted. instead of wasting gas going to the store. i guess that is what someone could do to go green

    A.) Yes and no. Using the youtube and other sites to spread the news is great. Since alot of people use the internet daily, it will surely spread quickly. But, it’s also like a contradiction. When you are trying to “go green”, you’re supposed to do green things like recycle and such things for the environment. Getting on computer isn’t exactly what you’d call “going green”.

    B.) This what you would call a “movement” needs more volunteering and cooperation from more than it’s own creators. So, getting the public involved can make a bigger impact on the world. Having that happen, is what we need to not only accomplish, but to spread what we need to accomplish with all this “going green” stuff.

    C.) Yeah. Telling family and friends about this project would have a bigger effect on the community. When one thing leads to another, the whole community could be either riding their bikes to work instead of driving, recycling, or even both and many more things.

    A)Is this a smart use of GE’s resources? i think it is because having a clean environment is good. if people do what GE is asking then the whole world could be green and not be nasty.

    B)How does getting the public involved help this cause? If we get the public involved then more people will here about it and start to be green to. The public can tell more people to be green.

    C)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 said yes because i could discus to my parents to get recycling ben and be more environmentally friendly. it would help the environment if we recycled and cleaned up after are self.

    a.) this is a great idea, because those you-tube sites have so much fans, that the idea will get around so fast. this will help get a lot of kids going green to help of earth, and economy.

    b.) this helps because the more people involved the better. that means we will have a better chance to clean up of environment and do a lot of stuff to help in so many ways.

    c.) i would be very willing to join in on this. to help in anyway possible. i would get many people i know to help. maybe start a club that cleans up the environment.

    A. This is a smart idea. It’s like celebrity endorsement. I feel it could become popular and catch on.
    B.Getting the public involved allows the idea of going green spread further into the nation. People will see their friends do it so they do it and then their friends do it and so on and so forth.
    C. Me and my friends and family can get involved and probably make videos to encourage people to go green.

    A) i think its a good idea because its better then just siting at home watching a show about it or just reading about it. And not very many people are interested in the environment which is why some parts of the world don’t look as good as it should. So i think it will encourage people to do something about it.

    B) getting the public involed helps more because they get to interact with it more instead of just sitting back and watching it.

    C) I would get some of my friends or my family members and make a video about it and i would just hope that people like it.

    A) Yes this is a really good idea for GE.

    B) Getting the public involved is good because it spreads around and people tend to pick up on things and help out more. So the more people that help the more people catch on and help go green.

    C) Yes there is tons of things people could discuss or do to help. You could do anything from recycle, leave more lights off, don’t use many plastic bottles, Or just pick up trash you see. Just anything to help go green.
