Welcome to SixLinks!
SixLinks was founded by two people, with the belief that we could take on the planet's biggest environmental issues, one person at a time. The site does two big things:
Gives you the Facts
We've broken down the planet's biggest problems, from energy to clean water, and explained the issues in bite-size chunks: What they are, where we are, where we need to be, and how we get there. You can also see the latest news, or read about the history.
Helps you Do Your Part.
A lot of people want to live more sustainably, but don't know where to start. We do.
So we made a checklist. It's big, comprehensive, and if you complete it, you've done all of your part
to fix the world.
We've also made it easy: each item on the checklist has a step-by-step guide to help you get it done, and there's a community ready to help out if you get stuck.

We're two guys living in the Portland, OR - one from the East coast
, the other from the West
who are just crazy enough to think we can make a difference. SixLinks isn't sponsored by any companies, agendas, or organizations. It's free to use. Our goal in making the site was simple: give people the facts, and help them do good things. Welcome, and have fun!
The site's very much in transition, and things are changing quickly. Wear a hard hat. Expect to see the Tomo pages. And rest assured that we're working hard to fix the errors you see!
Don't tell anyone, but we're also a social networking site. You know, like Facebook or Twitter, but with, well, a purpose
are cool. You can earn them for doing good stuff in the world!
