We’re very happy to support Years of Living Dangerously, a new documentary from our friends at Showtime Networks that explores the issues of climate change.
The project portrays the current and intensifying
effects of #climatechange on everyday Americans and demonstrates how they can take action.
As James Cameron, the series’ executive producer, told Reuters, the aim is to convince people that global warming is an existential threat that demands major action.
#DidYouKnow: Schools that have music programs have significantly higher graduation rates than do those without programs (90.2% as compared to 72.9%).

Background on Paul Polizzotto: Prior to creating EcoMedia, Paul was the Founder and CEO of Property Prep, an industrial environmental cleaning company - the first of its kind to help clients become environmentally compliant. Paul pioneered a concept known as Urban Watershed Cleaning and a process called Zero Discharge, a method of cleaning urban and storm water runoff before it enters storm drain systems - thus protecting the waters into which they feed. In 1999, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency named Paul an “environmental hero” for these successes.

What a beautiful day it was at the Hawley Veterans Center in San Diego. Volunteers from Do Good. Live Well. showed up to the Volunteers of America, Southwest Center to work on beautifying the landscape and making other much- needed renovations.
Thanks to UnitedHealthcare’s funding, the 20-bed transitional housing facility in El Cajon that serves single male veterans who are homeless with disabilities had flooring, energy-efficient heating and air conditioning units installed. The upgrades will reduce utility costs and make the Center a comfortable home for the veterans to recuperate and gain the skills they need to enter the workforce once their two year stay is over.
