Make every day Earth Day

22 April 2019 in Special topics
 

At Motif, we think Earth Day should extend beyond April 22nd. Since Earth Day’s inception in 1970, the environment has become more fragile as we face a variety of challenges that range from air pollution to ocean overfishing. You can do your part to help by investing in companies that actively practice sustainability through Motif Impact Portfolios.

Where We Are Today
80% of landfill items can be recycled
Landfills are among the biggest contributors to soil pollution – roughly 80% of the items buried in landfills could be recycled.
0.7 degrees increase in the last century
In the past century alone, the temperature has climbed 0.7 degrees Celsius, almost ten times faster than the average rate of ice-age-recovery warming.
3.3mm increase in sea level every year
Average sea levels have swelled over 203 mm since 1880, and every year, the sea rises another 3.3 mm.

How does your portfolio impact the environment?
Even if you’re recycling, you may be contributing
to companies that contradict your values, like
keeping our planet green.
