Friday for Change: Let's fight Climate Change together
Planet earth hosts countless species of animals, diverse biodiversity, and us humans. The only ones to be blamed for sea levels rising, ocean warming, wildlife extinction, soil erosion, and freshwater supply contamination.
Reason being, this Black Friday, we decided to partner up with MilkyWire to create a Friday for Change.
OASEAS donate 5% of proceeds from sales to Milkywire. Together, we can fight against climate change.

Stopping our Glaciers from Melting
99.9 % of all glaciers are currently melting, contributing to the rising of sea-levels and putting many species at risk of extinction.
Glaciers reflect heat into space, balancing out other parts of the world that absorb heat. Less ice means less reflected heat, meaning more intense heatwaves worldwide.
Increased heat waves and unpredictability of weather caused by ice loss are already causing significant damage to crops on which global food systems depend.
With your help, you will support Heïdi Sevestre’s groundbreaking research, which provides invaluable information on glaciers, vital in preventing further glacial melting and rising sea levels.
Fighting Climate Change with Trees
Forests that once held the soil in place have been cut down, and degraded landscapes threaten many communities.
Constantino Aucca is an indigenous leader and a biologist with significant experience within community-based conservation. He coordinates Acción Andina, a regional initiative involving over 70 rural and indigenous communities. Their mission is to protect and restore one million hectares of high-Andean native forest ecosystems over the next 25 years.
With your support, the organisations within the Acción Andina initiative will plant an additional 333,000 trees. It will also expand land protection efforts to new regions and involve more local communities to restore native forests.

Defending Rainforests of Indonesia
Mining, exploitation, and deforestation are threatening the unique Leuser Ecosystem in Indonesia, the last place on earth where tigers, elephants, rhinos, and orangutans coexist together in the wild.
Protecting them could significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of destructive forest wildfires.
The forest plays a vital role in climate regulation and carbon storage since trees and plants absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis. With carbon dioxide being one of the primary greenhouse gases driving climate change, forests are thus natural protectors against climate change.
By supporting Farwiza Farhan and her HAkA – Forest, Nature, and Environment of Aceh project, you are fighting against illegal palm oil plantations and unsustainable exploitation of the unique Indonesian rainforest and its wildlife.
