At Educated Earthling, we understand that there are millions of problems plaguing the health of our environment and wildlife every day. Every year, we decide to contribute our attention & 15% of our profits to different organizations that we feel deserve it currently.
The non-profit we are choosing to support for the year is:
The Lonely Whale Foundation
The Lonely Whale Foundation is dedicated to bringing people closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife.
Born out of the full length documentary, 52: The Search for the Loneliest Whale, the Lonely Whale Foundation was created to develop and support a community of ocean advocates through the champion of the Lonely Whale. Calling out at 52 Hz, the Lonely Whale sings at a frequency unrecognized by other whales leading us to believe it lives alone, calling out to no response. Through the story of our whale we are able to confront loneliness and connect with one another, ourselves, and our environment.
Their current campaign, Stop Sucking, is a plastic reduction campaign that encourages others skip the single-use of plastics. We use 500 million plastic straws every day in the United States, and they're encouraging others to skip the plastic straws and seek more alternative uses of drinking beverages. I barely notice a straw if it's put in my glass - It's time to make more conscious decisions, and in doing so we can help save the planet!
Our vision is to expose, educate, empower and ultimately inspire others to take the lead in making a change, so we love that this organization has inspired such wide-spread action in others.
