transform your buying power into a superpower to stop climate change and human-caused extinctions
When we truly care
about climate change and all the creatures that walk, fly, swim, and slither along with us, then the most important action each and every one of us can take is be mindful of the footprint we leave behind.

Human-caused climate change is disrupting lives and resulting in habitat destruction across the globe today. The main driver for that change is human consumption, so much of it unnecessary.

The good news is that the way each of us consume is under our individual control. Right now, we can start making different choices: consume only what we need, not what we merely desire, or consume in less harmful ways.

Many of us are already taking such action in our lives, however that is often not an easy choice since our society is currently shaped around overconsumption. At the same time it is hard to see the impact of our individual actions, to know and feel that we are part of something bigger, something where we can truly make a difference.
Our objectives
{objectives}
  • Slow and stop human-caused extinctions.
    Extinction means gone forever. Today human-caused climate change is causing extincts at an alarming rate. Our bottomless desire for comfort, convenience, and entertainment drives this change. We can do better.
  • Lead future generations to sustainable and healthy lives.
    Climate change and environmental degradation are having a terrible effect on people around the world, with worse yet to come.We must take action to ensure our children and grandchildren are able to survive and thrive.
  • End factory farming.
    It is flat out wrong to treat fellow sentients such as pigs and cows the way we do. The least we can do is respecting the animals we are going to eat.
  • Saturate our lives with purpose and meaning.
    We want our lives to be about more than simply getting through the day. We feel the greatest joy and satisfaction from helping others.

A day with fabe
{using the app top}
Use fabe to build and carry out climate action plans, integrating them into your life. What goals will you set for yourself over the next day or week? fabe has compiled a library of over 320 actions (with many more to come). Here's a small sampling. We'd love to add your own climate actions!
{actions}
Bike to work!

Avoid use of powered vehicles to commute. It's not always practical, but if it is, you get exercise, fresh air, and reduced carbon emissions!

Drink from a reusable water bottle

Don't buy cases of plastic bottles of water, wrapped in plastic! Buy and reuse a steel bottle or reuse whatever bottles you already have.

Skip meat for a day.

Raising livestock and poultry is very resource-intensive. For example, over 1500 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of beef.

{using the app bottom 1}
fabe tracks these goals for you.

The app shows that:
2 million people are on-board for no new plastic.
5 million people plan to avoid buying packaged foods.

And off you go through your day!

During coffee break, you ask that your coffee be filled in your reusable bottle rather than a disposable cup. fabe informs you that 570,000 people avoided new coffee cups today.
Each action gives you Life Points towards your fabe profile.

After cycling to work for a month, you gained enough Life Points to level up. You unlocked new features, and you never thought caring for the environment could be this addictive.

At the end of the day, you go back over your goals and check off those that you met. You realize that no matter how small your actions were, they add up doing a huge impact all over the world. It's amazing to recognize that you are part of a global community who care enough to take action  on behalf of all living creatures on Earth.
Climate action plans for everyone!
fabe will help you build and carry out your own personal action plan to put the brakes on climate chaos.
