These trusted and verified programs do a variety of things from planting trees, protecting forests from being cut down, developing new ways to capture carbon, and helping fund green alternatives instead of traditional or cheaper methods. Yucca is currently investing in Pachama as they have a variety of interesting projects that could really use the support.

Greenwashing is the exaggeration of a company's environmental credentials or contributions made to environment. That is, marketing communications that are meant to impress business operations to be better for the environment than they are in reality. We at YUCCA feel that this is dishonest, and in some cases actually hurts the environment, as it takes funds and attention away from areas and causes that desperately need them.
Vote. While it's important that we all individually do what we can to live a healthy and green lifestyle, by recycling, reducing our carbon footprint, and supporting businesses with those same goals in mind. It's also important to realize that the largest polluters and CO2 emitters, by far, are large businesses, manufacturers, and government entities. This is why it's so important to support and vote for legislation that forces these larger entities to be greener, recycle, and reduce their carbon footprint.
