How to Take Part on Earth Day

Earth Day is the day in which we celebrate the fragility and greatness of our planet: our only home. 

The earth changing before our very eyes, and it’s not for the better. Climate change is a very real threat that every single person currently alive needs to address because the actions will affect the world of tomorrow. Here are a few great causes to which you can contribute to help our fragile planet.

Reforestation

Earth currently loses around 15 billion trees every year due to deforestation. To put that in perspective, that’s 56 acres every minute! Reforestation initiatives around the world look to combat this and aim to benefit local communities and wildlife everywhere. Click here to see how you can donate and do your part!

Endangered Species

Species are going extinct at a rate not seen in 66 million years. Biologists claim there is sufficient evidence to officially rule this the sixth mass extinction in Earth’s history. Unfortunately, it carries a dark name: the Anthropocene Extinction as human activity is the main driving force. With your help, however, you can support conservation sites that look to keep our great animals alive and well.

Colorado Nonprofit Insurance Agency Shark Fact: Sharks have thrived in the oceans for over 400 million years–that’s before trees even existed! They have survived the previous five mass extinctions in Earth’s history but now face complete desolation due to human activity. (Are we really worse than all of the mass extinctions in planetary history? I’d like to think–to hope not.)

Earth is our only home and it is our job to ensure that it remains habitable for every species that shares this wonderful blue planet with us. Contact the experts at Colorado Nonprofit Insurance Agency, part of HUB International in Denver, Colorado at 303-894-0298.
