GROWmit, the One Planet Frog
Hi my name is GROWmit, I’m a One Planet frog representing the one earth we all share, and I live at Grow Community. I was painted by local artist Pierr Mogan and I’m part of the ‘Frogs on the Rock‘ community art project here on Bainbridge Island.
Did you know frogs like me are what scientists call an indicator species: we are particularly sensitive to changes in our environment. Toxic chemicals in the water and small changes in climate can make us very unhealthy. Many of us are disappearing because our homes have been polluted or because our habitat is getting warmer.
What if frogs didn’t have unlimited clean water and air? What if WE didn’t have unlimited clean water and air? What if there were just ONE planet for all of us to share?
The One Planet Living® program at Grow Community envisions a world in which it is easy, attractive, and affordable for all of us to lead happy, healthy lives with fewer of the earth’s resources.
If you live with me at Grow Community, you don’t have to make big sacrifices, learn a bunch of new stuff, or completely turn your life around to live here. But you can live in a way that helps both frogs and people to enjoy healthy habitats.
