It’s no secret that the human race is inflicting irreparable damage upon the Earth. Thankfully, the world is beginning to take steps in the right direction to help lessen this damage and preserve the planet that we and countless other species call home. We’re the first generation to know we are destroying our planet and could be the last that can do anything about it!
Working on the climate crisis is something we feel very passionate about here at webuybooks, which is why we chose to support WWF-UK by helping our customers donate to them.
For anyone that doesn't already know, WWF-UK is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Their mission is to create a world where people and nature can thrive together. WWF-UK is a global network organisation with offices in more than 90 countries and is collaborating on projects in over 100 countries, from Wales to Africa to the Antarctic. They’re focusing on several areas of work that will help turn things around. The key four areas of focus are:
To achieve their mission, they’re constantly finding ways to help transform the future for the world’s wildlife, rivers, forests and seas; pushing for a reduction in carbon emissions that will avoid catastrophic climate change; and pressing for measures to help people live sustainably, within the means of our one planet. Sounds pretty amazing right?
WWF-UK are working with businesses, governments, communities and individuals to achieve their mission. But they can’t achieve this mission without the help of supporters, who enable these world-changing projects to happen by donating.
Just £3 will enable them to plant a tree, or with £25 they could plant 1m² of seagrass in our oceans. These carbon-absorbing plants will help them tackle climate change and protect our one shared home.
£50 could pay for a local school visit in Brazil, by one of their community officers, to raise children’s awareness about the plight of jaguars and their habitats. Educating local communities and the future generation is vital to ensure sustainable conservation.
£500 could pay for fire fighting equipment to help combat forest fires which have devastated habitats, homes and livelihoods in the past. With fires becoming more frequent around the world, we need the resources in place to help prevent future catastrophic damage.
By supporting WWF-UK, you will be joining the fight for our world!
The process of selling your items to us will remain the same, but instead of entering your payment details at checkout, you’ll simply choose to donate to charity instead. When you select this option, you’ll then be able to choose to donate to any of the charities on a drop-down list, including WWF-UK.
On average, our customers make around £30 by selling their unwanted stuff to webuybooks. Plus, when you sell over £25 worth of items, we automatically increase the amount we pay out by 5%! So, that’s £31.50 that you could donate to one of our charities. The more items you sell to us, the more money you will be able to raise for WWF-UK, helping fight the climate crisis. So, rummage around your cluttered drawers, empty those boxes of books in the attic and see what you can pull together to help a wonderful cause!
