For every product purchased, you can have Happy Earth prevent 150 pounds of GHG from entering our atmosphere.
pounds of Greenhouse Gases
Climate Change is the biggest threat facing our planet.
CO2 levels in our atmosphere are now at the highest they’ve been in over 800,000 years
Global warming is caused by human activity,
primarily the burning of fossil fuels that pump
carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases
(GHGs) into Earth’s atmosphere. Solar energy
absorbed at Earth's surface is radiated back into
the atmosphere as heat. As the heat makes its
way through the atmosphere and back out
to space, GHGs both absorb and radiate the
heat back to the Earth's surface.
As global temperature increases, coastal communities - which account for 50% of the world’s population - face increasing threat from rising sea levels and storm surges. Extreme weather (droughts, hurricanes. flooding) is becoming commonplace. Climate change is irreparably altering habitats, reducing the availability of drinking water, disrupting crop production, and driving between 20-30% of the planet’s species to extinction.
Reduce GHG emissions and support communities
Worldwide, the technology oft exists to shift to low-emission alternatives - but the money does not. We support projects that help communities transition to practices better for them and the planet. Together, we can fund projects that slash greenhouse gas pollution and promote a healthy, happy planet.
Native American Methane Capture
In Colorado, when mountains slowly shift, methane
escapes from beneath the Earth's crust into the
atmosphere. We're helping the Ute tribe capture
his methane to provide energy for homes, businesses,
and schools on the reservation.
Methane is 25x more potent a GHG than carbon dioxide, which makes methane capture incredibly efficient in fighting climate change.
This project not only provides jobs for Ute members, it reduces local demand for natural gas and prevents invasive drilling and fracking.
90% of Ugandans cook over an open flame, which
poorly utilizes the wood / charcoal harvested for fuel.
This project supports the production and distribution
of highly efficient cookstoves, which would otherwise
be unattainable for most Ugandans.
These stoves reduce the amount of fuel by 50%, emissions by 50%, and families save around $110 per year - 20% of their annual income. They are made locally, providing jobs and income to Ugandans, and - by requiring far less fuel - prevent deforestation in Uganda's forests.
Over 1 million tonnes of emissions are prevented annually.
Our Every Day Difference
Even outside of these actions, we're committed to the welfare of our planet in every decision we make.
