THE STORY OF STUFF PROJECT

It always amazes me how much this organization manages to achieve 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; since I saw this video, I do my very best to avoid ordering from Amazon.

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 legally oblige the 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.
