20 Environmental/Green Nonprofit YouTube Channels

One of my many favorite things about my new iPhone (wahoo!) is that it's easy to watch my YouTube subscriptions. Whenever I need a little pick me up, I watch videos of the new kitties who are ready for adoption through a local organization, Maine Coon Adoptions, where we got our first cat.

You can't beat video for pulling at your heartstrings, which is why it can be a powerful tool for organizations with the time, money and skills to post videos on a regular basis.

While preparing to teach a social media webinar recently, I discovered quite a few environmental/green nonprofits that have YouTube channels. Inspired by the post, 80+ Environmental Organizations to Follow on Twitter on Planetsave, I thought I'd share the list with you.
  1. 1Sky
  3. Brower Youth Awards (a project of Earth Island Institute)
  4. charity: water
  5. Defenders of Wildlife
  6. Environmental Defense Fund
  7. Friends of the Earth
  8. Green Festivals
  9. Green for All
  10. Greenpeace USA
  11. The Humane Society of the United States
  12. Nature Convervancy

  15. San Francisco Zoo
