We’ve spent the past month taking a look at gifts that give back. At its core, gifts that give back are gifts that contribute to causes that are lessening inequalities across the world.
It’s time that we give back to the earth that sustains us, so this week we’re looking at 4 gifts that give back to the earth itself and help to lessen our impact on nature.
Climate change and mass pollution are serious problems for the health of our earth, and scientists give warnings that the planet as we know it may not be as sustainable for human life in the near future.
Environmental catastrophes intensify issues across the globe, as water and other natural resources become more scarce.
While a lot of change needs to happen to truly slow down the impact of climate change and lessen pollution, every little bit that we as individuals do helps.
So here’s 4 gifts that can help you give back to our earth and help you lead a green life.
