Welcome to "Heal the Earth, Heal Ourselves"!

We are a brand new team in a brand new Spark Team category. We're now listed in "politics," with a secondary listing in "environmentalists."

I've updated the welcome message for new members as below. Thoughts, ideas, feedback welcome!

"Welcome to Heal the Earth, Heal Ourselves! We care about the planet and we care about our bodies - and we see them as intricately connected.
This is a place for political discussions about vegan and vegetarian diets, GMOs, organic and whole foods, climate change, climate action and all related issues. We support dialog but please: let's keep it kind and respectful. Thank you!"

Me, I like putting Mother Earth first and we Homo sapiens last.

We're closing in on a team name and a new direction!

Either

Heal the Earth, Heal Ourselves

Or

Heal Ourselves, Heal the Earth.

Final thoughts?

Hey all:

With the Amazon burning and climate-change issues on the rise everywhere, a few of us have been thinking about broadening the scope of this team.

There's no Spark Team that focuses on the connections between health, animal welfare and the well-being of Mother Earth. Since the vegan team is really more about being encouraging and not so political, it would be nice to have a place that really encouraged that kind of dialog.

What are your thoughts? Is there another nonprofit that would be more reflective of an expanded team concept? Or should we just be something like "Animals, the Planet and Everything"?

Would love to hear your thoughts!
