How to help the environment with good environmental charities
Posted On July 23, 2021
Good environmental charities can help the world save the planet from global warming, according to a new report from The Next World.
The report, released Monday, shows that there are now more than 1.6 billion good environmental causes around the world, but they’re not receiving the attention they deserve.
“In order to be truly effective, charities need to be able to deliver results and make a difference,” said David Gershenfeld, The Next-World’s executive director.
“That’s why good environmental charity work is vital to our success.”
Gershenfeld said he sees good environmental fundraising as “the most effective and impactful way to fight climate change.”
Good environmental charities are a relatively new field, and they’re in a unique position to be a force in the fight against global warming.
“You have an opportunity to create an impact and create a sense of purpose in people’s lives,” Gershev said.
“They can make an impact, they can change lives, and the impact is so powerful, it can have a significant impact on the way we understand and behave in the world.”
While there are plenty of good environmental organizations out there, they tend to focus on specific environmental issues, such as climate change, and don’t have the broad scope to work on environmental issues in general.
“Good environmental causes have an ability to be very specific, very specific in their impact, and that makes it a little bit harder to find,” Gieshev added.
The next-world report finds that good environmental nonprofits have been successful in increasing awareness of climate change and reducing emissions, and have helped to address some of the more pressing environmental issues that people care about.
“I think the fact that good charities have been able to build their reputation around climate change is a really positive step, and I think it’s a positive sign that the field is growing,” Grosz said.
