How do you join environmental clubs, such as Greenpeace?

Well, I just looked in my phone book and found a number for Greenpeace. Check your book for a local chapter, if your city has one. If not, you can probably find out much about environmental groups by reading their magazines in your public library or school library. The Sierra Club publishes a monthly magazine called "Sierra" that lists many environmental groups in its classified advertisements. In general you may join these groups simply by sending them a donation, which will probably get you a subscription to their magazine or newsletter.

Another place to look is in your newspaper's job listings, because Greenpeace often hires people to go door-to-door for donations, signatures on petitions, and public education about environmental issues.
