Giving back is easy and it can happen in many forms. Invest in our world by taking better care of it starting today. You can start by living more conscious & it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. If you can’t donate, you can volunteer, spread the word or live & travel more sustainably.
Below, you will find some of the most amazing organizations working on improving our environment, wildlife, and providing fundamental human needs and rights (like water, education & dignified work) for people all around the world.
You can also create meaningful change in the world day by day even with a little. When you purchase a product with us you also support a person in need and our fragile environment.
However, if you want to get more involved and look for special volunteer opportunities or want to eat more ethically, dress more sustainably, learn more about sustainable travel & sustainable living there’s so much you can do to help if you follow a few easy steps.
In case you’re curious about any of these subjects and would love to learn more about them head to EdX or TED. Edx is an amazing site where you can take free and paid (you can earn professional certificates & more…) online courses by some of the best universities. While TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful (free) talks (18 minutes or less). Their talks cover almost all topics from science to business to global issues and even self-care.
