Interesting results will soon be published on our site.
Our Ecoist team has also promoted 10:10 global action, with whom we partnered with and represent in Serbia. On this occasion, we were giving away 10:10 check-lists with 10 points you can do yourself to reduce your carbon footprint for 10% each year, starting 2010.
We also had some give aways - 10:10 tags that have been made from recycled Boing 737 airoplane! Yes, really they are! This unfortunate airoplane has flown above volcanic eruption of Galunggung mountain, when the ash has damaged all four engines. See and read the whole interesting story here.
