Total Eclipse DFW 


  • Texas Stream Team 

Estimated Hours: 15-20

Want a chance to really get involved by taking pride and responsibility in your neighborhood creek or lake? Then Texas Stream Team may be for you. Volunteer monitors throughout Texas collect and test water samples from water bodies just like the ones you find in your backyard. The results are then made part of a statewide database for all Texans to see and use. If you want to be an official monitor, you’ll attend a training seminar and pick an area to monitor on a monthly basis. For more information, call the City of Dallas Stormwater Management at (214) 948-4022.

  • Household Chemical Collection Center
Estimated Hours: Varies by project
You can partner with the Household Chemical Collection Center to dispose of hazardous household waste properly. Find out about volunteer opportunities at the Center, or during a collection day in your neighborhood. You'll gain a real life look into the right way to dispose of household chemicals so they stay out of our stormwater. For more information, contact the Household Chemical Collection Center at (214) 553-1765 or visit the HC3 website.  

  • Adopt-A-Shoreline
Estimated Hours: 20
Choose a stretch of White Rock Lake to call your own! This is a great project for a group with at least 15-20 members. It requires at least six group members to attend the twice-monthly clean up sessions and maintain “your” stretch of shoreline. For more information, contact: For the Love of the Lake organization at (972) 622-SAVE (7283) or visit their Web site at  www.whiterocklake.org.  


National Cleanup Day

National CleanUp Day is global in scope and is one of several initiatives by Clean Trails to draw attention to litter solutions.  We are partnering with multiple organizations worldwide.  Clean Trails is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization and community of people dedicated to keeping the outdoors clean.  Study after study shows the highest indicator that someone will pick up litter is if they witness someone else picking up litter. That’s because peer group norms are more powerful than incentives, and together, they can provide impressive behavioral change.Core to our beliefs is the notion that people want to do the right things; all they need is a little encouragement or incentive. We believe that people are naturally responsible; if we encourage them to care for their favorite places, to pick up after themselves and others, then our outdoor spaces will become self-sufficient, clean, and more enjoyable.

Dallas Fort Worth — National CleanUp Day  


  • Storm Drain Marking Program

We invite you to see how your support changes lives by learning more about the people we help empower, where we work, the magnitude of the global water crisis, and the solutions driving our impact.

Oceana

Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Oceana’s mission is to protect and restore our oceans.  We lead strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes for the oceans. Oceana leverages law, science, grassroots activism, advocacy, and strategic communications to win policy change around the world.  We have won more than 275 victories and protected nearly 4 million square miles of ocean. 


PADI
 PADI AWARE Foundation is a publicly funded non-profit with three registered charities across the globe. Our mission is to drive local action for global ocean conservation. We advance our mission through citizen science, public policy and community grants. With PADI - the world's leading scuba diver training organization - we drive towards our collective vision to achieve balance between humanity and the ocean. 


Blue Marine Foundation
Blue Marine Foundation is a charity dedicated to restoring the ocean to health by addressing overfishing, one of the world’s biggest environmental problems.The ocean is the world’s largest carbon sink: by combatting overfishing, we can help life in the ocean perform its vital function of stabilising the Earth’s climate.

 We collaborate with community leaders, policy-makers and technical experts to identify important ocean areas to establish and strengthen protection for vital ocean ecosystems.  The Marine Protection Atlas tracks and evaluates strong global protection, helping nations and the world reach international conservation commitments  The Blue Parks initiative provides the blueprints for protected area effectiveness, incentivizes conservation excellence, and unites the ocean’s best protected places in a strategic network to save life in the sea. 


Surfrider Foundation
Plastics are all around us and a part of our everyday lives. Some plastic is beneficial and serves a specialized purpose including its use in vehicles, computers, and many medical applications. However, single-use plastics which are used for a few minutes and then discarded, have created a major pollution problem. Our ocean is filling up with plastic trash - choking fish, birds, turtles, and whales. It is even entering the human food chain in the form of microplastics. Plastic isn’t made to pollute the ocean, but up to 11 million tons of plastic still enter marine waters each year. Much of it starts out on land from overflowing landfills or as litter on our beaches, streets, and sidewalks that are swept into storm drains, creeks, streams, and rivers — all leading to the ocean. We must change the current flow of plastic pollution by stopping plastic at the source - advocating for better product alternatives and switching to reusables for our everyday needs. We encourage individuals, industry, and governments to protect our ocean, waves, and beaches by moving away from unnecessary single-use plastics. 


Water For The People
 Water for People Canada provides people in developing countries in Central and South America, Africa and Asia with an opportunity to help themselves gain access to water and sanitation. By collaborating with the local community, we empower community members to take ownership of their projects. We fund sustainable water projects and sanitation systems that are built by local community members, with locally available resources, and support health and hygiene education. This model allows community members to be fully involved in the process and empowers them with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain the projects or systems in the future. 

One in 10 people lack access to clean water. Water is essential for drinking, sanitation and hygiene, and food production. Some areas in the world rely entirely on water for their livelihoods. 
Women and young girls are disproportionately affected by the water crisis as they often carry the burden of collecting water for their families. This leaves little time for them to prioritize work and education, further forcing them into the cycle of poverty. To add, nearly 1 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene related diseases. Children are the most susceptible, which in turn affects their ability to go to school. 

The Nature Conservancy
Today’s version of large-scale agriculture is the biggest source of land conversion, drives deforestation that worsens climate change, uses 70% of the world’s freshwater supply and relies on fertilizer practices that pollute our waters. As the need to feed a billion more people increases, agricultural expansion could devastate habitats, release even more carbon into the atmosphere, and dry up rivers. We’re analyzing satellite images and local yield potential to pinpoint where soy farming and cattle ranching can expand without destroying nature. This approach is especially vital in Brazil’s Cerrado region, where half of all natural habitat has already been converted to cropland and pasture. Cooperating with farmers on sustainable practices can help save what’s left of the Cerrado’s rich savanna.


EXXON MOBILE
ExxonMobil’s projects around the world involve work in remote and sensitive environments, such as deep water and areas of high biodiversity.We aim to develop, maintain and operate projects responsibly, using appropriate standards that enable us to Protect Tomorrow. Today. We strive to be a leader in environmental management, and work to understand and mitigate potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts.





Arctic Summer Could Be Practically Sea-Ice-Free by the 2030s

In a new study, scientists found that the climate milestone could come about a decade sooner than anticipated, even if planet-warming emissions are gradually reduced.

WFP

WFP is prioritizing emergency action to prevent millions dying of hunger and help build and stabilize national food systems and related supply chains. We aim to support a record 171.5 million people in 2023, a significant increase on 128 million in 2021. We are diversifying our supplier base, promoting local food procurement and negotiating for humanitarian access and export waivers. Our operational needs are now at an all-time high of US$25.1 billion, with confirmed contributions of US$10 billion (or 40 percent). WFP has a plan for 2023 – the most ambitious in its history – but needs renewed and larger commitments to help deliver millions of people from disaster. We face a triple jeopardy: operational costs increase, the number of acutely hungry people rises to unprecedented levels and donors are squeezed by multiple demands. Without additional resources, WFP will be forced to continue drastic prioritization in many of the countries where we operate, including among humanitarian crises.

Feeding America

Since 2011, Feeding America has produced estimates of local food insecurity and food costs to improve our understanding of people and places facing hunger and inform decisions that will help ensure equitable access to nutritious food for all. Our interactive map, now updated with data as of 2021, features annual food insecurity estimates from our Map the Meal Gap study for the overall population and children in every county, congressional district, and state, as well as for every service area within our nationwide network of food banks. The map also features food insecurity estimates for the older adult and senior populations at the national and state level from Feeding America’s The State of Senior Hunger in America report series. To achieve our vision of an America where no one is hungry, we believe it is imperative to address disparities in food insecurity by race as well as place. To that end, we have updated our food insecurity estimates by race and ethnicity for available populations and geographies. Recognizing that sample sizes are smaller, and uncertainty is greater the more we disaggregate data, we believe that understanding even broad historical variations within and across populations and places is critical. Only then can we develop effective strategies to address the root causes of food insecurity and change the systems, policies and practices that put people at risk of hunger.

Care

Right now, 41 million people are on the brink of famine. At least 1 million children in Afghanistan will suffer from severe acute malnutrition. In Yemen, 360,000 malnourished children could die without food aid. Here’s how your gift today can help:

Global Warming image
The transport sector is one of the largest sources of CO2 emissions and a major source of air pollution.
Two new vehicles enter the roads every single second. By 2030 it will be more than four.
By 2030, an estimated 127 million vehicles will be produced globally. By 2035, the total number of vehicles could be 2 billion.
The environmental impact of cars will depend on how effectively we move towards electrified cars (and more fuel efficient cars but that’s not a long term solution)

UCSUSA
Global warming endangers our health, jeopardizes our national security, and threatens other basic human needs. Some impacts—such as record high temperatures, rising seas, and severe flooding and droughts—are already increasingly common.Our personal vehicles are a major cause of global warming. Collectively, cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all US emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases for every gallon of gas. About five pounds comes from the extraction, production, and delivery of the fuel, while the great bulk of heat-trapping emissions—more than 19 pounds per gallon—comes right out of a car’s tailpipe.In total, the US transportation sector—which includes cars, trucks, planes, trains, ships, and freight—produces nearly thirty percent of all US global warming emissions, more than almost any other sector.Unfortunately, oil-related emissions may rise in the coming years as the oil industry extracts and refines “unconventional” oils, such as tar sands and tight oil. Using less oil—and avoiding unnecessary emission from the oil we do use—is the real solution.

Fuel-efficient vehicles

 use less gas to travel the same distance as their less efficient counterparts. When we burn less fuel, we generate fewer emissions. When emissions go down, the pace of global warming slows.


Cleaner fuels produce fewer emissions when they’re burned. Some fuels—such as those made from cellulosic biofuels—can reduce emissions by 80 percent compared to gasoline. And better regulations would help prevent the gasoline we do use from getting any dirtier. 


Electric cars and trucks use electricity as fuel, producing fewer emissions than their conventional counterparts. When the electricity comes from renewable sources, all-electric vehicles produce zero emissions to drive.These and other solutions are here today—but more can be done. Learn more about our plan to Transform Transportation.
 

Cars affect the environment in various ways, both directly and indirectly. Cars emit greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, which contribute to global warming and climate change. Cars also produce air pollutants and particulate matter, which harm the environment and human health, causing acid rain, smog, and respiratory problems.
 

To address these issues, there are several initiatives being taken such as promoting public transportation systems like buses and trains that run on electricity or other clean fuels. Governments are also encouraging people to use bicycles or walk for short distances instead of using cars.


 Long Term Goal For Cars And The Environment

 For the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 — when carbon emissions added to the atmosphere are balanced by carbon removal — EVs would need to climb from the current 5 percent of global car sales to 60 percent by 2030, the agency found.


Toyota

The Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050 (Challenge 2050) is a set of six visionary, global challenges that seek to go beyond eliminating negative environmental impacts to creating positive value for the planet and society. Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC, TMNA’s parent company headquartered in Japan) announced these six challenges in 2015 after extensive research and internal and external consultation. The challenges, which apply to all Toyota subsidiaries around the world, are the most demanding and most inspiring environmental commitments this company has ever made.


The six challenges are:

New Vehicle CO₂ Emissions Challenge – Reduce CO₂ emissions from new vehicles by 90% (2010 baseline)

Operations CO₂ Emissions Challenge – Eliminate CO₂ emissions from operations 

Life Cycle CO₂ Emissions Challenge – Eliminate CO₂ emissions from suppliers and dealers

Water Conservation Challenge – Conserve water and protect water resources

Recycling-Based Society Challenge – Support a circular economy

 Harmony with Nature Challenge – Conserve biodiversity, protect species and restore habitats Through Challenge 2050, team members across the company, in every region of the world, are working to put Toyota’s global vision of Respect for the Planet into action. Challenge 2050 unites us all with a common purpose – to be more than just good stewards of the environment and to create positive changes beyond our facility boundaries. Within TMNA, we continue to refine a regional environmental sustainability strategy to align Toyota’s global values and Challenge 2050 with our regional focus areas – Carbon, Water, Materials and Biodiversity. In each focus area, we are working towards minimizing environmental impacts and, through outreach activities, towards a net positive impact on society and the planet.

How we can help image
  • What’s the best way to guarantee that your electricity sources are supporting the transition to more sustainable energy? Generate your own additional renewable resources. That’s exactly what we’re doing at the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind park with our partners, Vattenfall and Allianz. Located in the North Sea about 18 km off the coast of the Netherlands, it’s set to be the world’s biggest subsidy-free offshore wind park. The first sustainable energy was delivered to the grid in 2022, and when it becomes fully operational in 2023, its 140 turbines will deliver an astonishing 6 terawatt-hours of power per year. That’s roughly equivalent to the average hourly power needed to boil 4 billion electric kettles. 

  • Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to reduce their carbon pollution. Join a global movement like Count Us In, which aims to inspire 1 billion people to take practical steps and challenge their leaders to act more boldly on climate. Organizers of the platform say that if 1 billion people took action, they could reduce as much as 20 per cent of global carbon emissions. Or you could sign up to the UN’s  #ActNow campaign on climate change and sustainability and add your voice to this critical global debate.

  •   Lobby local politicians and businesses to support efforts to cut emissions and reduce carbon pollution. #ActNow Speak Up has sections on political pressure and corporate action - and Count Us In also has some handy tips for how to do this. Pick an environmental issue you care about, decide on a specific request for change and then try to arrange a meeting with your local representative. It might seem intimidating but your voice deserves to be heard. If humanity is to succeed in tackling the climate emergency, politicians must be part of the solution. It’s up to all of us to keep up with the pressure.  

  • Transport accounts for around a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions and across the world, many governments are implementing policies to decarbonize travel. You can get a head start: leave your car at home and walk or cycle whenever possible. If the distances are too great, choose public transport, preferably electric options. If you must drive, offer to carpool with others so that fewer cars are on the road. Get ahead of the curve and buy an electric car. Reduce the number of long-haul flights you take.  

  • If you can, switch to a zero-carbon or renewable energy provider. Install solar panels on your roof. Be more efficient: turn your heating down a degree or two, if possible. Switch off appliances and lights when you are not using them and better yet buy the most efficient products in the first place (hint: this will save you money!). Insulate your loft or roof: you’ll be warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and save some money too.  
 
  • Eat more plant-based meals – your body and the planet will thank you. Today, around 60 per cent of the world’s agricultural land is used for livestock grazing and people in many countries are consuming more animal-sourced food than is healthy. Plant-rich diets can help reduce chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. 

  • To reduce your food’s carbon footprint, buy local and seasonal foods. You’ll be helping small businesses and farms in your area and reducing fossil fuel emissions associated with transport and cold chain storage. Sustainable agriculture uses up to 56 per cent less energy, creates 64 per cent fewer emissions and allows for greater levels of biodiversity than conventional farming. Go one step further and try growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs. You can plant them in a garden, on a balcony or even on a window sill. Set up a community garden in your neighbourhood to get others involved. 

  • Individuals can also spur change through their savings and investments by choosing financial institutions that do not invest in carbon-polluting industries. #ActNow Speak Up has a section on money and so does Count Us In. This sends a clear signal to the market and already many financial institutions are offering more ethical investments, allowing you to use your money to support causes you believe in and avoid those you don’t. You can ask your financial institution about their responsible banking policies and find out how they rank in independent research.

Yes! We can all take notice of our environment. We can learn how our planet works. We can learn how to live on it without making a mess of it. We can help to keep it magnificent for ourselves, our children and grandchildren, and other living things besides us.  You can help by growing your own vegetables and fruits. You can help by planting a tree. Your new plants and trees will help to remove the greenhouse gas CO2 from the air. If you grow some of your own food, you will also help to prevent more CO2 from entering the air from the fossil-fuel-burning trucks, planes, and ships that transport your food to you from far away.

Multilateral climate funds have a key role to play in agenda-setting and in catalysing and coordinating investments which are necessary to respond to the climate crisis.Falling short: addressing the climate finance gap for children is a study analysing how ‘child responsive’ projects funded by key multilateral climate funds are – over a 17-year period. ‘Child responsiveness’ is defined as addressing the distinct and heightened risks children experience from the climate crisis, strengthening the resilience of child-critical social services and empowering children as agents of change.
