Your Guide to Taking Eco-Action

We all know we have to do something about our changing climate, but it’s not always eat to figure out what to do and how (especially with busy lives, work, college debt and more!). The most important thing you can do when you want to make a difference is to do something on a regular basis, whether something “big” like getting out and volunteering at an event or something “small” like signing a petition.

The aim of this community is to make taking eco-action easy, fun and empowering. Utilize guides to take action, find organizations in your community and make personal eco-changes. Listen to the podcast for inspiring and fun interviews with individuals and organizations making a difference and ideas to take eco-action after the interview. Stay connected with the newsletter and social media to get ideas to take action every month.

Join the community, follow along for ideas, and create a more sustainable life for yourself and the planet.
