by | Apr 19, 2022 | Climate Change

We know that people are worried about climate change and want to take action, but feel that the problem is too big and they’re not sure how to help. Check out some ways you can get started across our technologies, whether that’s leading the charge on fundraising for a cause or just learning more about climate issues.

Fundraise on Instagram Reels: Available today in more than 30 countries, you can donate and create fundraisers directly in Instagram Reels for more than 1.5 million nonprofits. Dave Burd also known as Lil Dicky, Maggie Baird, and Zyahna Bryant are among the many raising money to build awareness on environmental issues including climate change and sustainability. As always, we cover the donation processing fees, so all the money raised using Fundraisers on Instagram goes directly to the organization.
Visit the Climate Science Center: We’re adding new features, including highlighting everyday actions and solutions people can take and showcasing new data visualizations that show country-level emissions and curating new content. More than 200 million people have visited the Climate Science Center, now available in 150 countries. 
Show support for the environment:

On Facebook, we’re adding profile frames that let people show their support. 
On Messenger, we’re releasing a custom sticker pack and 3D Avatar stickers built just for Earth Day. We’ve also partnered with Ellen DeGeneres to bring an Earth Day-friendly version of her mobile game Heads Up! to video calling on Messenger and Instagram.

Shop secondhand on Facebook Marketplace: You can use Facebook Marketplace to buy, sell and thrift secondhand items in your local community and beyond — from bicycles and plants to clothes and home decor. As of this April, there are more than 700,000 environmentally-friendly and up-cycled items listed on Marketplace in the US.

Starting in 2020, our global operations reached net zero greenhouse gas emissions and are supported by 100% renewable energy. We’ve also set an ambitious goal to achieve net zero emissions across our value chain and be water positive in 2030. To further our commitment, we’re announcing several new initiatives:

Tackling climate misinformation: Last fall, we launched a $1 million Climate Misinformation grant program to support organizations working to address climate misinformation. We’re announcing that an independent panel of judges has selected nine grantees from around the world who will work to combat climate misinformation.
