Our friends at Climate Counts has launched an exciting new campaign, Back-2-Cool, where they are helping us track the companies behind the back to school shopping ads we as parents are inundated with every day, and the actions or inactions of those companies on climate change.
Did you know that the nine largest food companies Climate Counts recently scored pulled in over $253 billion dollars last year, even in a recession!?
Climate Counts bring consumers and companies together in the fight against climate change and helps us be better consumers by scoring the worlds largest companies on climate responsibility. Let’s support the companies who are trying to make our world a better place, and tell those companies who aren’t trying to do better! When we make the connections between our actions, our purchasing power and Climate Change, we as parents, and consumers, are a force to be reckoned with!
Let’s help Climate Counts by contacting the bottom 4 of their 9 biggest companies, and letting them know that action on climate change matters to us and that they need to “step it up a notch” if they want to continue to have our business!
Let Climate Counts help you contact these companies and be sure to give the ones that are striving, a thumbs up, and tell the ones that are struggling, to do better! Download the free Climate Count App, or go to the Climate Counts website for help!
