EcoTuesday, a unique, structured monthly networking event for sustainable business leaders held concurrently in eight cities across the country, will feature Paul Paz y Mino and Cyndie Berg of Amazon Watch as our speakers for the June event in San Francisco.

Come and introduce yourself to a roomful of professionals!

EcoTuesday is a networking event for sustainable business. Every event features a 20 minute keynote by an industry thought-leader, followed by the hallmark "Introduction Circle" where all participants have an opportunity to share about their about passion and find like-minded collaborators. Events take place nationwide on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Please join us at The Box SF at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, June 22nd in San Francisco. RSVP at http://www.ecotuesday.com. $5 with online registration ($10 at the door).

This month we're happy to have Paul Paz y Mino and Cyndie Berg of Amazon Watch join us! They will discuss the following topics:

* Our oil consumption & the destruction of the world's ecosystems
* The relationship between governments and oil companies
* Potential renewable energy alternatives to oil

Amazon Watch works in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru to strengthen indigenous communities to defend their rights and territories. In the US, they wage campaigns against companies operating in the Amazon, urging greater corporate social responsibility around human rights and the environment. Since 2002, Amazon Watch has campaigned for justice in Ecuador, where Texaco (now Chevron, California's largest company), deliberately dumped more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater in the Amazon, causing an environmental catastrophe which experts have dubbed the "Rainforest Chernobyl."
