Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Natural Resources Defense Council.
The weather is real right now. Natural Resources Defense Council is a battle-tested Environmental Non-Profit that uses the power of the law to ensure clean air, clean water, and healthy communities for all Americans. In addition to actively working on heat protections, wildfires, through 8/7 donations will be double matched to protect pollinators.
The NRDC has harnessed the power and expertise of 700 scientists, lawyers, and advocates with the power of more than three million members and online activists for over 50 years. The NRDC works tirelessly—on a policy level—to confront our planet's most pressing problems. And the planet's problems are feeling *pretty* pressing these days. Sometimes when we engage with "climate change news" it all feels so horrific and overwhelming that we can pretty easily descend into into a paralyzing orange-sky doom spiral. The logical, rational, positive, science-based work of the NRDC is a good counter. Learn more here @nrdc_org.
If you don't need anything from us, consider supporting the NRDC directly - double matched here to support the bees. If you DO find yourself in need of (appropriately) beeswax or fresh brushes, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Ollie for the nomination!
