Cut out plastic to raise funds for climate related disasters

Life for our Pacific neighbours is challenging enough without the dramatic increase in storms, cyclones, droughts and natural disasters that climate change is creating. 

In Tuvalu, one of the poorest nations in the Pacific, it’s hard to grow enough food to eat as salt poisons the table water and water temperature changes impact the number and quality of fish that are the backbone of local markets. 

UnitingWorld’s partners are supporting Pacific people as they advocate for climate justice, helping them use hydroponic gardening and drought resistant seeds, training people to respond in disaster and providing emergency relief.



Reducing your reliance on plastic for forty days will keep our environment top of mind. Sharing your challenge and asking people to donate provides funds for UnitingWorld’s partners to adapt and advocate in response to changing climate.
