The world is forever changing. From climate to culture, humans are always moving and always inventing. We get caught up in our own lives, and sometimes, we forget that we are all on this planet together. If you are feeling that you are compelled to do something for the greater good of the world, but you feel you don’t have time, you are wrong. Helping the world doesn’t necessarily mean digging trenches, building homes, or coming up with cures. There are very easy ways you can do your part to help the world from the comfort of your own home. Here are four ways you can invest in the world.
Donate to Clean Up the Oceans
There are several organizations that have one sole purpose and that is to clean up the oceans. Every year, millions and billions of pounds of plastic are floating around in our oceans, and groups come together to capture that plastic and make the oceans clearer and cleaner. One company in particular is 4 Ocean. This particular organization takes the plastic and makes jewelry out of it. All the proceeds go to continuing efforts to save the oceans and sea life. They make great gifts and you have something to show for your contribution.
Build Cell Phone Towers
So many remote parts of the world have zero communication towers. As a result, they are falling behind technologically and socially. Telecom companies don’t reach out to these parts of the world because it is too expensive to build and maintain cell phone towers in far out places. World Mobile Solutions allows individuals and companies the opportunity to have cell phone and telecom towers built in these parts of the world. You can do your part to help bring the world closer together and keep the planet running at the same speed.
Support Local Farmers
The world is in short supply of food. So many countries are impoverished and hungry. The more farmers we have the more healthy food we can get on people’s plates. You can do your part by shopping at farmer’s markets, supporting local food banks, and donating to food organizations for the hungry. It all starts with having the land and the means to grow and harvest various kinds of foods, and with farmers being fully supported financially, the world’s food supply can grow and you will have healthy food.
Buying an electric car is a big win for you. Not only do electric cars prevent air pollution, but you won’t have to pay for gas. As gas prices constantly ebb and flow, you will be unaffected by the price gouging of fuel. Also, electric cars don’t have engines so there is little to no maintenance required for your vehicle. You will be saving money at the pump, saving money on the upkeep of your car, and you will be keeping the air free and clear to breathe. It’s a great investment for the planet that will last you many years.
