Global sea levels are rising faster today than ever recorded before, and the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is higher than it has been in three million years.
When it comes to fighting climate change, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or lost. Knowing where to start can be challenging and can even lead to feelings of worry. You might even experience some climate anxiety.
However, it’s not all hopeless! Across the UK (and the world) there are various climate change charities dedicated to reducing humanity’s carbon footprint. These charities work hard to reverse ecological damage and the effects of global warming.
One of the best ways you can show your love for our planet is by donating to one of these charities. Your donation will support them to continue their work in preserving the environment.
We’ll be making donations to each of the charities listed below, and we encourage our community to do the same. Together, we can contribute to building a better, brighter and more stable future for all our children and young people.
