Every day is Earth Day, thanks to CREDO members
Every year on Earth Day, companies like to use the old line “Every day is Earth Day.” But here at CREDO, it’s not a cliche; it’s our reality.
Thanks to CREDO members like you who help power millions in donations to dozens of frontline climate justice organizations, we are fighting every single day to combat the climate crisis, protect our air, water and land, and ensure a cleaner, healthier planet for generations to come.
We’ve donated more than $20 million to climate justice and environmental nonprofits. Since 1985, thanks to CREDO members like you who use our products and services every day, we’ve donated $20,275,199 to groups like Earthjustice, Sunrise Movement, Friends of the Earth, Center for Biological Diversity and Rainforest Action Network.
Nearly every month, we include a climate justice nonprofit on our donations ballot. This April, you can vote to help us distribute a portion of our monthly donation to Amazon Watch, just by casting your vote at CREDODonations.com.
Fighting for the environment and climate is baked into our DNA. Since we were founded more than 35 years ago, environmental protection and climate justice have been a core mission of CREDO. Whether we’re raising concerns about plastic pollution in the ocean, protesting oil pipelines on indigenous lands, or advocating for renewable energy, we don’t just talk the talk about the environment — it’s part of our lived experience.
We’ve planted four million trees. We print our bills on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and we’ve planted 100 trees for every ton of paper we use (enough trees to make another ton). To date, we’ve planted close to 4 million trees worldwide through our donations to tree-planting organizations.
Phone recycling. Got an old phone you don’t use any more? We have tips on how you can reuse it — but we also make it free and easy for our members to recycle their phones through our partnership with Eco-Cell. Recycling your old device is not only good for the environment, but it’s also good for the progressive nonprofits CREDO Mobile supports.
