Billion Acts of Green



Our planet needs help, and your actions matter!

The Billion Acts of Green campaign, developed by the Earth Day Network, is the core of Earth Day's 40th Anniversary program. This effort is focused on the facilitation and cultivation of service on behalf of the planet. The goal of the campaign is to aggregate the millions of environmental service commitments that individuals and organizations around the world make each year - thereby sending a powerful message that people from all walks of life are committed to solving climate change.

The Billion Acts of Green web site serves as the repository for these commitments. Through the web site, individuals and organizations can make their own commitments to the environment. These commitments will be automatically counted toward Earth Day Network's ultimate goal of a billion acts. Currently the website has raked in 5,062,593 acts of green.

Become an environmental leader by adding your green act today, and read more about Earth Day Network's large and small-scale environmental projects around the world at Billion Acts of Green.

Today I pledged to unplug all of my electronics when they are not in use!

New Product: Tablet Locker

We’ve been busy and it doesn’t look like we’ll be taking a break soon! Spectrum’s newest product is the InTouch20 Secure Tablet Locker.


We’re taking a good idea and making it smaller! Adding iPad, eReader or other tablet technology to the curriculum? The InTouch20Secure Tablet Locker is the little cousin to the InTouch40 Tablet Cart and is just the thing for the small classroom. The wire management and numbered slots make organization and charging easy. With the optional Synchronizing Kit, apps can be added and the tablets synchronized. Security, charging and syncing all in a small footprint to fit in the small classroom!


You can look to Spectrum for solutions whether you’re in the market for a lectern, desk and tables, or mobile computing storage and charging carts.

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.
