#Repost @world (@get_repost) ・・・ On Friday, thousands of students across Europe skipped school to take to the streets and call for action to end climate change. The UK had one of the largest turnouts, with more than an estimated 15,000 students taking part across multiple cities. It is the first time that students held mass protests in the country. Other protests also took place in France, Belgium, Austria, Italy, and Germany under the #FridaysForFuture hashtag. Dozens more protests are being planned around the world – from Uganda to South Korea – in the lead-up to the global protest scheduled for March 15. The movement was inspired by Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, who started skipping school every Friday to sit outside Sweden’s parliament to protest climate change inaction last year 🌏✊️(📷: Getty, Reuters) - #cli#climateke #protest #signs #globalwarming #climatechange #environment #climate #sto#stopclimatechange #climatechangeisreal #temperature #weather #pollution #savetheenvironment #environmentalism #environmentalist #savetheearth #stopclimatechange #saveourplanet #sustainability #children #kids #student #students #earth #london #uk #germany #france

Great work by @patagonia in raising millions for organisations fighting climate change! We need more retailers to do the same 🌍❄️ @patagoniaeurope @patagoniamanchester 📷LA TIMES VIA GETTY IMAGES ✍️Angel Au-Yeung, Forbes On Wednesday, Patagonia announced it has an additional $10 million in profits on its books for 2018 as a result of Trump’s “irresponsible tax cut” last year, which lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. Instead of investing the additional dollars back into its business, Patagonia said it would give $10 million to grassroot groups fighting climate change, including organizations that work in regenerative organic agriculture to help reverse global warming. “Our government continues to ignore the seriousness and causes of the climate crisis,” Chouniard said in a statement. “It’s pure evil.” Patagonia, citing news reports, claims the oil and gas industry have been the biggest benefactors of the corporate tax cut, with billions added to its bottom line. Meanwhile, the U.S. Global Change Research Program released its fourth National Climate Assessment on November 23, which pointed to the already “frequent and intense extreme weather and climate-related events” as harbingers of an even more tumultuous future. “The timing of this tax cut couldn’t have been worse,” Patagonia’s statement asserts. This bold stance comes one year after Chouinard first declared his opposition to Trump’s decision to reduce the size of Bear Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, two Utah land areas that became federally protected under the Obama and Clinton administrations, respectively. In response, Chouinard blacked out Patagonia’s homepage online and replaced it with a simple message: “The President Stole Your Land.” Find the full article on Forbes.com #winterneedsus #powuk #protectourwinters #news #life #climb #work #environment #cli#climatege #climateaction #change #energy #climate #business #globalwarming #socialgood #company #ski #snowboard #adventure

We think of ourselves as the most intelligent creatures on the planet, yet we are the ones consuming it’s resources at an unsustainable rate. _________________________________________ . . . #craigsecolifestyle #mondaymotivation #quote #realtalk #timetochange #climatechange #plasticpollution #balancedliving #veganlife #ecolifestyle #gogreen #sus#sustainableliving #slo#slowlivingife #zer#zerowastelife #slowliving #simplelife #greenliving #simpleliving #inspiration #protectourplanet #atonewithnature #nature #ecoconscious #zerowaste #motivation #sustainability #explore #plasticwaste #greenspace #sustainable
