It’s never too soon to take steps to protect the environment, and Greenpeace has been doing that for 40 years and counting. Built on investigating and exposing global environmental problems, Greenpeace is an organization that finds environmentally responsible solutions for a green and peaceful future.
Greenpeace has various campaigns that promote environmental protection across different fronts. Their campaigns include:
Greenpeace also aims to diminish corporate influence that prevents environmental sustainability. One of the biggest threats to the environment is drilling, fracking, and mining fossil fuels. Greenpeace campaigns to keep coal, oil, and gas in the ground and advocates for renewable energy sources. Another huge problem is plastic that ends up in the oceans. Greenpeace urges corporations to find alternatives to single-use plastic. Along with encouraging companies to be environmentally responsible, we as consumers must choose to support companies that adopt eco-friendly measures. Uniting against corporate interests that harm the environment allows us to rebuild a democracy that protects the environment.
Greenpeace is not funded by government or political contributions. Instead, individual contributions are what make their efforts possible. Donations provide the foundation that make Greenpeace able to advocate for earth-saving policies.
