7 Charities to Support Nature

Donating money to charities is something I think everybody who has the resources should do. For me personally, I live at least eco-neutral, meaning that I live within the boundaries of the planet. However, eco-neutral is only the base**. I want to live eco-positive. I want to actually contribute something to make this world a better place. You can do that in different ways. A relatively easy way is by donating money. But which charities actually contribute to a better world? In this post I want to elaborate on research I did to find out. Here are 7 charities to support nature.

In September of 2020 I evaluated on my negative impact, had I lived within the earth’s capacity from September 2019 till September 2020? I was very close to the goal and I am sure I’ll make it this coming year. However, it made me think about the other side of the story.

And since I am very close to living within the earth’s capacity it is time to reflect. What positive impact have I made in 2020?

This question is ‘But, what do you eat?’ since I am vegan. Here’s what I eat in a week as a vegan.
