Traveling around the world for us has been motivation number 1 for many years. One of our guiding principals will always be traveling and exploring divergent destinations.
We have seen the endemic destruction of forests from Nicaragua to Cambodia, Brazil to the Congo. Food production and palm oil are major contributors.
The unrelenting pursuit of profits by most, the uncompromising and understandable pursuit by the underprivileged to survive, and the complete lack of effort by the fortunate and able, has led us down a dark hole of oceanic pollution and destruction.
Bullsh*t eastern medicine (not to say that all eastern medicine is bullsh*t - just the parts that require endangered species). Sh*tty ideology and a compete lack up empathy have also systematically eradicated large game around the world - especially on the African Continent.
We aim to do what we can to reverse these outrageous and life threatening trends. We're creating the most unique themed, hand made prints that represent the plights our earth/society are facing. Subsequently, we're donating a portion of the sales of the items with said prints to their corresponding charities.
OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches. The largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years.
COOL EARTH IS THE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS ALONGSIDE RAINFOREST COMMUNITIES TO HALT DEFORESTATION AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. Contrary to the headlines, rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever before. But it’s not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved. We just need a new approach. That’s why we don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put local people back in control of their forest. Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forests best possible custodians. That’s why all Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led. An approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing. By developing local livelihoods, our mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency.
We are also the only charity that works solely where the threat to the forest is greatest, on the frontline of deforestation. And each of our partnerships forms a shield to make the neighboring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.
