Love the Coffee. Don’t Love the Deforestation.

Our trees aren’t trash. On National Coffee Day, Dogwood Alliance joins with our partners at Environmental Paper Network to take action to raise awareness that using throwaway cups causes harm to people, forests, water and the climate.

A Big Thank You To Terrapin Beer

We were lucky enough to hang out in the cool town of Athens, GA with other like-minded folks who were eager to learn more about how they can protect the forests in their backyard. This year, even more so, because three new wood pellet mills are proposed in and around the Athens area, which would clearcut Georgia forests, turn them into pellets, and either ship them to Europe to be burned for electricity OR burn them right here in the South.

My Community Had a Voice Today

Having a voice and telling my story are important steps in finding an acceptable resolution to the issue of industrial logging in my community. I experienced “that step” in participating in the meeting with a Dutch delegation in Richmond, Virginia early this November. On several occasions now, I have told my story regarding the impacts on my community due to Enviva’s industrial logging in Northampton County, NC and Southampton County, VA.
