“The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” – Lady Bird Johnson 


As human beings, we all share one thing in common – the environment. We all breathe the same air, enjoy the same sunsets, and wish upon the same stars. But, the environment we know and love is changing due to human activity.  

Imagine a world where there is more waste than green space or where water from natural resources becomes undrinkable because of pollution and contamination. Land use change, pollution, poor water quality, chemical and waste contamination, littering, deforestation, and other activity all contribute to changes in our environment and can pose considerable threats to our health. Caring for our natural resources supports our needs, including food and nutrition security, energy, development of medicines and pharmaceuticals, and potable water. A healthy environment also supports economic opportunities and leisure activities that contribute to our wellbeing.  

Many CFC charities work to preserve our world for future generations. It only takes a small action to create a large change that will protect our world for many years to come.
