🌎 THE STORY OF STUFF PROJECT

This small organization is amazingly effective in the field of environmentally conscious consumption. The Story of Stuff Project is based in California, but operates worldwide. It makes videos that are  extremely informative. Also because I saw this video, I avoid ordering from Amazon.

The Story of Stuff Project’s initiative Catalog Choice keeps my mail box just about free from junk mail.

🇳🇱 URGENDA

This groundbreaking organization in the Netherlands (which has an English-language web page) aims to make the country more sustainable, in collaboration with authorities, companies, civil-society organizations, and private individuals. Via a court case, Urgenda has managed to oblige the Dutch State to fulfill the Paris Agreement — the action plan to tackle climate change that 195 countries reached in 2015. Urgenda is providing the State with practical tips on how to achieve this.
