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.
