We have an incredible opportunity this year to urge our leaders to help the poorest in our world adapt to a changing climate. We need your voice! Let our leaders in Congress know that we want them to keep the promise!
2. Take the plastic challenge.
Try and go 7 days without buying single-use plastic. It sounds easy at first, but trust us, you will slowly realize how much plastic has invaded our pantries, fridges, and even our mail! Most people don't know that in addition to polluting our rivers and oceans, many plastics are not recycled, and instead are burned. Burned plastics are a massive contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and are a contributing factor to climate change.
3. Plant a tree.
Did you know that trees are an incredible source of capturing carbon? They also filter our air, cleaning the air we breathe of pollutants and toxins. Trees also have deep significance in Christian theology. Take a few minutes and look at all the references to trees in scripture, you will be amazed!
4. Tell someone about climate change.
Talk with someone about the relationship between climate change and hunger, or climate change and the refugee crisis. Renowned climate scientist and believer, Katharine Hayhoe, says that one of the best things we can do to respond to the climate crisis is to spread the word. So many people don't realize all the ways they already care about climate change. Help open someone's eyes!
We are working with farmers around the world to help them adapt to climate change. For as little as $15 a month you could help train 4 farmers this year! Your commitment can not only change farmers' lives, but impact entire communities, lifting them out of poverty.
