Save the planet by eating more plants, using green transport
Global carbon emissions reached an all-time high in 2018, a disturbing milestone that indicates the need to take strong action to prevent the worsening effects of climate change. Across the globe, state and non-state actors alike have come together to empower individuals to mitigate climate change by educating consumers on how daily choices, whether on energy use, food choice, or transportation, have an impact on the environment and on climate change. WildAid has taken its demand reduction approach to climate mitigation and works with local stakeholder partners to encourage sustainable, low-carbon lifestyles that help limit the impact of individual emissions on climate change.
