The climate crisis is so broad and the actions we need to undertake are so big, it can feel hard to know where to begin. But there are so many ways, big and small, that you can make a contribution – from altering your daily habits to working within your community to effecting change on a global level. Hover over the boxes below to learn more.
Whether it's recycling, composting, driving less, powering your home with renewable energy, reducing meat consumption, conserving water, turning off the lights when you leave the room, or any of a myriad more little actions, everyone's efforts to reduce your carbon footprint add up. Click this text to learn more about how you can help on an individual basis.
It's not only fun to get involved with your community and meet other people interested in preserving our climate – it's also one of the best ways to take major strides toward reaching the urgent goals of the climate movement. As communities, we can make collective choices about power generation and join together to lobby our representatives for the public good. Click this text to learn more.
We're partnering with Graying Green for Earth Day 2020
and reaching out to youth, parents, and our community!
Graying Green is a simple but effective card game that teaches children about their impact on the environment and the climate. It guides kids through figuring out what they're already doing and what more they could be doing about climate change on an individual basis.
Take Climate Leadership Action
Did you know that the entire lifecycle of plastics is filled with deeply rooted problems and worse—an entrenched petrochemical industry that refuses to budge?
To raise awareness of the fundamental problems and unaddressed consequences (health, economic, environmental, and climate threats) posed by the entire lifecycle of plastics, The Climate Reality Project is partnering with several regional organizations to host a monthly webinar series called:
“Tackling the A-Z Impacts of Plastic: From Fracked Gas to Plastic Pollution in the Ohio River Valley and Beyond.”
Watch the full recording of prior webinars here.
Write a letter to the editor, op-ed, or blog post about your story and why you take action to protect the planet.
Contact your local leaders and let them know we cannot put off urgent climate action any longer.

While hundreds of millions of dollars have been sent to federal, state and local law enforcement during the pandemic, 20 million people still have not received their stimulus checks, 30 million people remain uninsured, 40 million people are unemployed, 50 million people will face hunger in the weeks ahead and 60 million people do not have living wages.
We need transformative change now.
Let your congress people know that you demand an end to systemic racism.
