Deepak Chopra and Annie B. Bond of Care2 Rally Supporters at Upcoming San Francisco Green Festival

Main Stage Speakers to Discuss the Launch of Several New Initiatives That Put the Power in the Hands of the People

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2007) -


WHAT:

Friday, November 9th, 7pm: Deepak Chopra, a passionate supporter and spokesperson for Care2, and President and CEO of the Alliance for a New Humanity, will appear on stage at the San Francisco Green Festival to discuss "The Environment As Our Extended Body," exploring the connection of each human being's physical self to the environment as an important leverage for change and a shared platform for understanding environmental issues beyond any political context.

Saturday, November 10th, 6pm: Annie B. Bond, executive producer of Green Living at Care2.com, will be speaking on stage about how you can "Green Your Home Naturally." During this presentation, she'll discuss "The True Beauty of Green" and invite others to join her in getting her hands dirty as she mixes up and demonstrates simple all-natural beauty and housekeeping formulas to replace the toxic ones many depend on. Bond will be making an all-purpose cleaner, a skin moisturizer, an acne treatment, and more. And, at the same time she'll be talking about the importance of choosing non-toxic options in order to live a life that benefits the planet, and that is also personally healthy, healing and beautiful.

This week Deepak and Care2 announced these initiatives:
