Cool Earth

When you see first hand the destructive effect man has on nature and its effect on local peoples lives you want to help. You know there must be a more sustainable way for the future for these communities. Cool Earth is a charity that does just that. They work alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. They stand to lose the most from deforestation but also have the most to gain from its protection, that’s why they are the forest’s best possible custodians. All Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led. By developing local livelihoods, their mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty, creating strong, self-determining communities.
