5 Small Environmental Groups Worth Checking Out

If you’re like a lot of people, you may, at least sometimes, want to change the world. Maybe you think a new development plan is poorly placed due to a natural habitat that already exists there, or you’d like to see your community have a better recycling program or invest more in renewable energy. Whatever your plan, though, implementing change, even on a relatively small level, can be daunting. If you’re like a lot of people, you not only have big ideas, but day-to-day responsibilities, financial concerns, and maybe public speaking isn’t really your thing.

But that’s why environmental organizations like the ones you’ll see here exist. They exist so that people like you can make their voices heard and not be alone in their work to make the world a little more sustainable. These are small organizations that typically have a local scope, but seek to be an example for the larger world. Their focuses vary, from pushing for cleaner energy solutions and conserving natural spaces to streamlining local businesses into mean, green, profit-generating machines.
