Greentumble was co-founded in 2015 by us (Sara and Ovi) with the goal to inspire people throughout the world to open their minds, and change their attitudes and behaviors towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
It all started in Oneaga, a small village in North-East of Romania. We decided to quit the rat race and get back to living with Nature. Often, in the evenings, we were brainstorming ways we could get involved in solving the environmental crisis we face today.
The environment (the Earth) is the place we call home. It is where we live, breathe, eat and raise our children. Our entire life support system depends on the well-being of all of the species living on this planet. Thus, it is our responsibility to ensure that future generations enjoy the right to a healthy environment, in the same way like we have it now.
Summer 2015 – We created…
Greentumble gives Nature a voice. We managed to raise awareness to over 450,000 people
so far and more than 890 bloggers, teachers and parents are actively using our online resource to learn or teach about environmental issues such as deforestation, endangered species, waste, pollution, global warming, and many more.
If you are new to our online community, we invite you to join our team – big changes require all of us to work together.
If you’ve been part of the Greentumble community already, we thank you. None of our work would be possible without you. You’re a true environmental hero!
