Reforestation

In order to avert a climate catastrophe, research shows we must take CO2e out of the atmosphere. Inventors around the world are working on big machines to suck carbon out of the air and capture it underground. Meanwhile, nature already built those machines for us: They’re called trees, and they are a crucial part of protecting our climate.

Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Future Technology

Let’s face it, our fossil fuel-based system needs an upgrade. Instead of spewing CO2e until we run out of dead dinosaurs to burn, let’s go all-in on renewable technology now. That’s why solar is so important: it can bring electricity to millions while keeping fossil fuels in the ground.

Social Impact

Nearly half of the world still cooks over open fires, which is bad for the planet and bad for human lives. Air pollution from inefficient wood-burning stoves contributes to millions of deaths each year. These clean cook stoves, developed with the community, burn efficiently with less fuel, protecting people and the planet.
