Top 10 Things
you can do to make an impact
in your daily life
1 - Stop buying products that contribute to deforestation (example: reduce beef intake)
2 - Speak up in your community. Write to your local government and talk to your neighbors (remember to share a call to action, as well as bring awareness to the issue)
3 - Start your own awareness->action group. Often, the greatest impact is created when we can join others together with a common goal.
4 - Join the Unify global meditations here.
5 - Reduce your paper and wood consumption. Double-check with Rainforest Alliance that what you're buying is considered rainforest-safe. You can also purchase rainforest-safe products from the alliance's site.
6 - Use the internet responsibly. Ecosia.org is a search engine that plants a tree for every 45 searches you run.
7 - Sign petitions. Find out more here
8 - If you're looking for a new job, consider working for a non-profit or values
9 - Use your personal network (both in person and digitally) to spread awareness - not just of the problem - but of the solution. Include a positive call to action everytime you share.
10 - If you own a business, find a way to make doing-good-in-the-world part of your business model
11 - Organize your own local fundraiser and donate the profits to your chosen initiative. This currently has greater impact than donating time to a specific initiative most of whom are currently overrun with volunteers.
