CSR + ART START-UP
It’s the opportunity to leave a mark in art and be a protagonist of the change, not just being a passive spectator of the harms of urbanization.
Without geographical frontiers. No racial, religious, social or sexual distinctions.
"Leave your GREEN MARK" suggests implementing 10 eco-ethical actions to each participant commit for 1 ton CO2 reduction per year.
This strategy can make possible our goal of achieving the promise of reducing 1 million tons of CO2 per year!
The harmony between the human race and nature. Each responsible person who leaves their GREEN MARK mark in the artwork also takes the commitment to reduce carbon emissions, creating a positive social, economic and environmental impact.
We know good corporate citizenship is one of the single most important factors affecting the success of businesses today. Corporations are increasingly expected to give back to the community and demonstrate the impact of their charitable giving to key stakeholders.
Leave your GREEN MARK on the planet is an original proposal with this unique four characteristics that make it especially attractive.
The purpose of this proposal is to raise $60,000 for the development of GREEN on GRAY´s (GoG) Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Annual Membership Program. Corporate social responsibility, often abbreviated "CSR," is a corporation's initiatives to assess and take responsibility for the company's effects on environmental and social wellbeing. CSR aims to ensure that companies conduct their business in a way that is ethical.

Leave your Green MARK
Add your GoG Commitment
Change the World with art
We offer participants 10 eco-ethical changes to implement in their day to day and reduce at least 1 ton of emissions per year. This commitment reduces their environmental impact switching a gray mark (pollution) into a GREEN MARK.
Once the participants accepted the GoG Commitment, they use one of their thumbs, painted with green ink, to leave a physical mark on the art piece and on a participation certificate. Both with a unique PIN number that allows them to identify their unique GREEN MARK in the finished artwork.
Each participant gives an email and takes a picture with the green thumb, for the artistic documentation of the commitment to "Leave a GREEN MARK on the planet" with the Participatory Eco Artwork:
“Your GREEN MARK becomes an international masterpiece that assembles all those who leave a mark to contributes with their unique gift -their Individuality- to create a better world.”
HISTORY - MISSION - VISION - CORE VALUES
Art For Evolution (AFE ) is a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 2013 in Miami, Florida by the ecological artist Analia Bordenave to raise awareness of our habits that negatively impact the planet, and shift those toward creating a positive and lasting (green) mark on the planet.
Art For Evolution's mission is to strengthen the community and the environment through art.
Art For Evolution's vision is to preserve our environment by compensating the impact of human activity through Art.
Art For Evolution uses Ecological Art and Participatory Art as tools to increase understanding and knowledge of environmental issues and solutions. AFE provides education about solutions to environmental problems and provides safe alternatives to threats to the environment through the 1st project, GREEN on GRAY, and culture to live in a sustainable way.
AFE Core Values: The GREEN on GRAY Project, promotes environmental awareness as well as actions toward mitigating climate change. We encourage education and collaborative actions that reduce pollution and other negative consequences generated by excessive consumption through Participatory and Ecological Art.
The CO2 footprint (GRAY MARK) measures the impact that human activities produce on the environment. The carbon mark is the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an event, product, or person.
The most dangerous and common gases are carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane. The CO2 comes from the use of fossil fuel for transportation and industries: oil, carbon, and natural gas.
Carbon dioxide emissions have risen 60%.
The global temperature has increased six-tenths of a degree Fahrenheit.
The planet has increased in that time its population 1,700 million.
The sea level has risen 7.5 centimeters (3 inches).
The extreme weather events have increased by 30% in the US.
The ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica have declined by 4.9 trillion tons of ice
The good news is that knowing the problem is the first step toward fixing it! Measuring our Gray Mark gives us the possibility to reduce our impact!
Everybody can leave a GREEN MARK on the planet.
We believe in the power of the crowd, and want to awaken it!
Involve the players in the current problem to also be protagonists of the solution.
Suggest that everyone take responsibility to reduce and compensate their pollution to achieve neutralization.
Through global participatory art, awaken awareness of the role of the power of change to transform our gray mark into a GREEN MARK.
"Your GREEN MARK"
can change the world
The human tendency towards the destruction of nature does not allow anyone to seek refuge in indifference. As we must contend with our habits of consumption and pollution and their impact on natural resources and our environment.
With your help, through participatory art, the GoG´s CSR Annual Membership Program plan involves companies and people working across the globe to establish an eco-ethical commitment and behaviors that begin to counter the impact of carbon emissions. This effort is a significant step toward thwarting environmental crisis.
The Problem is "Your MARK"
Does your mark on the world leave a positive impact or a scar?
The worst environmental problems are results of human negligence toward nature, and the depletion of resources over time, with exponential consumption over the last century, forcing us to confront crisis today.
