EarthWorks Saving the environment starts with you!

The environment is suffering greatly because of us and EarthWorks is a great foundation to donate to, to help save the environment. People like you and me can help. Most believe there is nothing wrong with the world we live in partly because the government doesn't inform us people but that is a false statement.

Leonardo DiCaprio started a foundation in 1998 to help the environment called the ''Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation''. He established the foundation with the mission of protecting the world’s last wild places. The foundation implements solutions that help restore balance to threatened ecosystems, ensuring the long-term health and well-being of all Earth’s inhabitants.

This is how I would love everything to look like, beautiful and clean.

Most people know that there are some ongoing problems with our planet, but don't know that we are the problem. The United States makes up about five percent of the world's population, but we use up about 30 percent of the Earth's resources. Another thing is that using recycled paper for one days worth of the New York Times Sunday Edition would save approximately 75,000 trees. Did you know that it only took 55 years to wipe out 90 percent of the ocean’s predators causing a disruption of the marine ecosystem?

If people really wanted nature like this, they would do something about it. An easy way to help is just to recycle.

I strongly believe that if the government would make it important to keep the environment clean, more people would be involved, but instead people continue to use up the Earth's resources. Saving the environment by just using reduce reuse recycle, it's as easy as that. Another way to help is to spread awareness.

Our land could turn out like this from global warming which was caused by humans.

Many problems we have are caused by humans so that means people are responsible and we have to suffer. Mass extinction, rainforests rapidly disappearing, clouds of pollution spreading across the globe and whopping carbon footprints are only a few of the incredible environmental quandaries we’re facing today, and the numbers will blow your mind. We produce enough trash to circle the globe hundreds and hundreds of times, and the amount of money wasted on the Iraq war could have solved many of the world’s problems. This is not a way to live. This can harm people animals and plants.
