Giving Back: Awesome Environmental Charities

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of giving. Seeing the smile on another person’s face from positive change you have helped affect is the definition of beauty and love. Environmentalism is particularly important to us, here at Comvita. We have listed some of our favorite environmental charities that are helping to make the world a better place for everyone.

Environmental Defense Fund: This non-profit organization exists to tackle issues affecting our climate, oceans, ecosystems, and public health. Founded by scientists with a nonpartisan policy, the EDF is comprised of 1.5 million members who work with companies, corporations, and the federal government to improve global conditions across the board.

Greenpeace: Perhaps one of the most recognized eco-friendly organizations, Greenpeace has made a name for itself with over 30 million supporters spanning across 55 countries. They do not accept donations from corporations and work tirelessly to expand public awareness of environmental issues through research, media, and education.

Earthjustice: The official motto of Earthjustice is, “Because the earth needs a good lawyer.” This public interest law firm takes on potentially harmful legislation to defend our right to a healthy environment. Their work includes actions that protect wildlife, communities, climate, and energy.

Wildlife Conservation Network: The WCN is a leading protector of endangered species in 37 countries around the world. By supporting independent wildlife conservations, animals in danger of extinction are given a second chance at a happy, fulfilling life.

The Conservation Fund: Created to preserve America’s natural beauty, The Conservation Fund has protected 7.8 million acres of land across 50 states since 1985. Best of all, 94% of their donations go directly into program costs, making them one of the most trusted organizations in the country.

We highly recommend all of these amazing environmental charities for their hard work and dedication to defending our precious ecosystem for many centuries to come.
