Supporting solutions to solve the climate crisis
We stand for the Planet
SAFE Worldwide is committed to doing our part to work on environmental issues that will help promote the health of our planet and its inhabitants.
We dedicate this page to providing individual tools to help you be part of the solution for creating a thriving planet where all species can thrive.
TAKE THE PLEDGE
Say NO to single-use plastics
Be a voice for real change. Whether it’s going to the grocery store, or to a take-out restaurant, or something as simple as using plastic straws, you can say NO to single-use plastics and you can help create change in your neighborhood, your town, your city, your state. It can take just one voice and small actions to create big change.
Effects of Climate Change
Polar bears are one of the species most impacted by climate change. They hunt, mate and rest on the sea ice, which makes them highly vulnerable to a warming planet. The Arctic is most affected by global warming and it is not expected to slow down.
If more is not done soon, some scientist have concluded that the Arctic could be ice free in summers by 2050, which will impact the species’ chances of survival for the future.
Facts and figures regarding the climate crisis
Wildlife is impacted
Over 700 species on the Endangered Species List are already affected by the warming of the planet.
Oceans are warming
Our oceans will see increases in water temperature, higher levels of acidity and changes in oxygen levels, by 2060.
5 regions (China, United States, European Community, Russia and India) make up 59.2% of all greenhouse emissions (2018)
There were 14 global weather events (tornados, floods, fires, droughts) in 2018 with cost of over $1B in damages.
The number of days with temperatures over 100’F will double around the world within the next two decades.
The cost of inaction
Costs from damages for action on climate change by 2100 to be $8 trillion, while with inaction, it will be around $20 trillion.
Sea Ice is in decline
The annual sea ice minimum in the Arctic has decreased 13% per decade since 1979.
Impact on Coral Reefs
Will see long lasting impacts on coral reefs, like mass bleaching events, disease outbreaks and decreased growth rates.
Abnormal temperatures force wild plants and crops to bloom before insects can migrate to pollinate them, creating mass food shortages.
A carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by us and our lifestyles (examples are burning fossil fuels, deforestation and methane gases from livestock).
If we don’t curb our CO2 emissions, many endangered species will plummet by more than two-thirds in the next 20 years. More needs to be done by all of us to combat climate change.
Climate Hero - A Carbon Footprint Calculator
ClimateHero will help you 1) calculate* your current carbon footprint, 2) pledge to reduce your carbon footprint, and then 3) purchase a monthly subscription so your money goes towards climate projects that offset your remaining carbon footprint to 200%. Will you be a Climate Hero, Friend, Consumer, or Villan?

More facts and figures regarding the climate crisis
Nature is part of the answer
Tropical forests are incredibly effective at storing carbon, providing at least a third of the mitigation action needed to prevent the worst climate change scenarios.
Shrinking ice sheets
Greenland lost an average of 279 billion tons of ice per year between 1993 and 2019, while Antarctica lost about 148 billion tons of ice per year.
Sea levels are rising
Global sea level rose about 8 inches (20 cm) in the last century. The rate in the last two decades is nearly double that of the last century.
Climate change is a leading cause of coral bleaching around the world, affecting large amounts of coral that may never recover from the devastating effects of global warming and pollution.
But there are steps that all of us can take to make a difference and give coral a chance to regenerate and help provide abundant life to the ocean’s living creatures.
