We have now officially launched the next phase of our Personal Climate Action Center, with a new comprehensive website dedicated to helping you take personal action. Please click here to access the new site, www.personalclimateaction.org and sign up to take action!
We have spent time researching the incredible work of other companies and organizations and put it all in one place. Our hope is to simplify the research for you, and to serve as a one-stop shop you can trust to help you achieve the goals you set. There is so much information out there, it can be overwhelming and paralyze you into taking no action at all, while instantly creating more anxiety about the threat of climate change, so we hope to make it easier for you.
For those who have participated in our first phase it is because of your engagement that we have been able to collect important data on the effectiveness of taking personal action and now we can move forward with even more resources and knowledge that these actions collectively can make a big impact. Below you will find actions and tips that we send via our newsletter each week. Sign up here to receive future tips in your inbox and be a part of the Personal Climate Action Center!
