The mass mobilization to protect our planet starts Sept 20
BY AMY ZIFF
At MADE SAFE we think about the ecosystem all-day, every day. In our hazard-based approach, we not only look for ingredients that won’t harm humans, but we screen to ensure that ingredients won’t harm our air, soil, water, aquatic life, or animals.
We believe we are all interconnected and if something is harming one part of our ecosystem, no matter how distant or remote, it ultimately harms us, too. As residents of this planet, we need all ingredients and products to support a safe and sustainable world. While our work at MADE SAFE may not be climate-focused, it is very much climate-related.
We hope that you’ll join us and the many young people who are calling on citizens across the planet to disrupt business as usual by joining the global climate strikes on September 20 (just ahead of a UN emergency climate summit) and again on September 27. The climate crisis won’t wait, so neither will we.
The mobilization of millions won’t fix this global crisis – we know that. But these events will demonstrate that we are no longer content to just sit on the sidelines. As millions of people around the world rise up to support our youth and stand beside the organizations working to turn this crisis around, our power will be magnified.
A WORLDWIDE MARATHON
These climate strikes will launch a sustained mass public mobilization, necessary to pressure world governments to take action in line with climate science and justice. This is a worldwide marathon that every living thing on our planet desperately needs us to participate in. To find a climate strike near you, click here.
Thank you for doing your part, for supporting MADE SAFE and for standing up (and hopefully striking too!) for what you believe in.
We have the power to create the world we want. Here’s to envisioning a new climate reality that works for the entire ecosystem.
