The ‘Build It’ Project, African Impact

Helping develop the local town of Livingstone (a stone’s throw from the magnificent Victoria Falls) with innovative and self-sustaining structures while beautifying the community. This project helps to create safe and sound structures for the community through ecological and self-sustaining methods.


‘Plastic Oceans’

Single use plastics are a human addiction that we must face head on. By 2050, there will be more plastic in the planet’s oceans than there are fish. Plastic pollution is not only impacting our waters and marine ecosystems, but also making their way slowly but surely back into the human food chain.


Safe Water for Healthy Nepal

Water is one of the basic human necessities but a large proportion of the Nepalese population is devoid of access to safe and adequate drinking water. According to the Department of Water Supply and Sewerage in Nepal, even though an estimated 80% of the total population has access to drinking water, it is not safe. Those belonging to poor and excluded groups in rural areas have limited to no access. Many in remote areas have to rely on small brooks running from the mountains and spend hours traveling to get water. Still the drinking water available is not always safe as supplied water is often polluted.


Cool Earth

Cool Earth is a charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years and, contrary to the headlines, rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever.

It’s not too late. cool earth believes the rainforest can be saved. we just need a new approach.


Cool Effect

Colorado is home to an abundance of coal. When coal emerges from the ground and creates a seam, methane escapes into our atmosphere. While conventional methods are unable to capture this leakage, the Southern Ute tribe found a genius solution. Though they don’t mine any of the coal on their land, they did team up with scientists to use a system of wells to naturally capture the methane and funnel it to existing gas pipelines. Each year, this project reduces up to 60,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s the equivalent of 3,529 average Americans emitting no greenhouse gases for a whole year.


Great Barrier Reef Foundation

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation exists to ensure a Great Barrier Reef for future generations. A charity dedicated exclusively to protecting the Great Barrier Reef through raising funds for scientific research.


The Hunger Project

Over 58 million Mexicans live below the poverty line, and the government has defined 11.7 million as living in extreme poverty and deprivation. Over the past 30 years, The Hunger Project’s experience in Mexico has demonstrated that the most direct and lasting route to sustainable development — to ending hunger — is through the will, commitment and capacity of the people who stand to gain the most when hunger ends: the hungry people themselves.
