Vote Paper is the Planet’s Gold?

I was just going to cheekily put up a link to my slogan for the WWF and TetraPak initiative to save the planet’s forests, but then this little FM ditty came out. So hopefully you’ll like it, and like the idea enough to vote for Paper is the Planet’s Gold.

There’s more details after the poem.

The Poem

Gold and Paper Compared

gold is dazzling
yellow shiny metal
glowing like spring’s
flower petal
brightening up the world

Paper is the Planet’s Gold

trees colour the land
wearing many
shades they stand
silently absorbing carbon
and providing paper

The Cause

WWF and Tetrapak have joined up for an exciting new initiative where you can enter a slogan to help promote renewability. Tetrapak have pledged to donate £1 for every idea entered, and 10 pence for every vote to WWF’s forest saving work.

My slogan was: Paper is the Planet’s Gold and the explanation is that it would hopefully help people:

Compare the value of gold in global financial markets to trees for Planet Earth’s life. This will hopefully emphasise the value of paper and other products derived from living sources, and the need to use them sparingly and recycle as much as possible.

Win a Panda, Tiger or Dolphin

By voting you can win a WWF ‘Adopt Animal’ gift, such as adopting a panda, tiger or dolphin for free. So please vote for Paper is the Planet’s Gold!
