The Earth is our one and only home, and it is up to us to preserve and protect it for the future of humanity. CFC charities are developing technology to clean the trash on the oceans’ surface, discovering fungi and bacteria that can eat plastic, inventing new ways to clean excessive carbon from the air, and restoring endangered species populations to keep our planet clean, safe, and healthy.  

By taking preventative measures and offering preparedness training in response to climate change, CFC charities have been able to help communities reduce the structural damage and loss of life from wildfires, respond quicker to flooded communities, and rehab cities affected by major storms. Regions facing multi-year droughts are being supported by charities who deliver food and water to make sure the communities have what they need to survive and thrive.
