“The times we live in can feel pretty bleak. But we believe better days are on the way.”
We at S4TP often discuss how we can get a positive message of empowerment and possibility out there in the face of the sustainability crises that the world is undergoing.
This wonderful video below, from Ecosia, celebrating their milestone of having planted 50 million trees does so well to do that: to focus on the positive while acknowledging the negative.
Planting trees has SO MANY BENEFITS – from CO2 removal to animal habitat restoration; from soil health to erosion prevention; from restoring weather patterns to empowering women; from supporting permaculture to providing employment….. https://blog.ecosia.org/50-reasons-to-use-ecosia/
A while ago, Solutions for the Planet made a policy decision that all employees would use Ecosia as their search engine, and we wanted to congratulate them on their milestone, but also on their overall mission and ethos. If you haven’t heard of them, find out more! And if you haven’t already, set it up as your search engine, and you’ll be doing good without leaving your desk or touching your wallet!
It’s time to be a Climate Optimist, and make positive change and empower positive changemakers.
