The bears are back on the ice hunting seals, but our highlights from the fall polar bear migration are a fun recap of the season.

You can help #saveourseaice by signing our Petition for Polar Bears. Also pledge to green your holidays in our Commit List below, and then share a photo or video of your actions in our gallery.

Next Tundra Connection Webcast:

We hope you enjoy these highlights from this year's polar bear migration! This fall's Tundra Connections webcasts have ended, but we've posted links to archives on our Fall Schedule so you can watch those that you may have missed.

Commit

Sign our Petition for Polar Bears! Then take the next step by greening your holidays to reduce your carbon footprint and help #saveourseaice.

Today I commit to:

  • I committed to Light up with LEDs
  • LED light strands use about 70% less energy than incandescent lights and last ten times longer. When making the switch, look for Energy Star qualified LEDs and don’t forget to recycle the old strands—easily done at local home improvement stores.

  • I committed to Use a timer on my lights
  •  Why waste energy? Set a timer so your lights turn on when it gets dark and switch off when you go to bed.

     

     

     

     

  • I committed to Think outside the gift box
  • Consider homemade baked goods, jams, or knitted scarves as gifts—or give the gift of an experience, like tickets to a play. Another idea: a donation to a nonprofit in a loved one’s honor.

     

     

     

     

     

  • I committed to Travel light
  • Save gas by eliminating extra weight in your car—especially heavy items that you don’t need. If space permits, carry cargo in your trunk rather than the top of the car.

  • I committed to Support green companies
  • Want to change businesses? Tell them with your dollars. Use Climate Counts as your guide to climate-friendly companies.

     

  • I committed to Choose long-lasting products
  • Understand the life cycle of a product before you buy it. Can you fix it when it breaks? Can you recycle it when it’s worn out? 

     

  • I committed to Celebrate less wastefully
  • Did you know that consumers generate 25% more trash during the holiday season? Make a conscious effort to reduce that waste by avoiding disposable serving products, buying only what you’ll eat, sending e-cards, and wrapping packages with recyclable paper. 
  • I committed to Offset my carbon
  • We know you can’t get to zero carbon, but you can balance the equation by offsetting the rest.
