Lorax Story of Dr. Seuss goes Green.
added to website January 31, 2012

We entered into the petition campaign of, as FAR has utilized the story with young visitors and with church RE rituals and many activities at Alewife.
We have also tied ribbons around the silver maple trees to be cut with our family outings.

Dear Ellen,

A few days ago, you got an email about our petition asking Universal Pictures to change their Lorax movie website to be more green. This was important to us because when we grow up we will really want a healthy planet, so we worked hard to change the world.

This week we found out we did it! Woo hoo! Now visitors will see a gruvvulous "Go Green" Truffula tuft button that Universal put on their big website -- the button links to a whole page of tips about how to help the environment. You, yes you, and 57,238 others helped us put it there by signing our petition.

We are so proud! Some adults say they're role models for kids, but we think we're being role models for adults. We are also proud because so many of you helped us. Even though we might be little we can still make a lot of change in anything we work hard at.

Our petition was so much fun. You can make one at, too -- just click here! We were super psyched and wanted to check signatures every second! We graphed how many, but it blew right off the poster! It's great for people to be caring about the environment!

To wrap up, we'd just like to say:

Thank you so much for all your support.
We needed Universal to be a good sport.
We are the changers, the changers that say,
"Thank you so much on this glorious day!
You helped us a ton," we needed to say,
"We couldn't have done it any other way."
