Each point helps communities and cities facing extreme weather
For every point that Lauri scores in preselected games this NBA season, we will donate 1,000 USD for disaster relief.
So far, we have donated:
“To me it’s important that food is both healthy and produced sustainably. Being an athlete doesn’t mean I can’t make better choices. To minimize my carbon footprint, I’ve stopped consuming red meat, and primarily eat ecologically produced food.”
“Directing energy into the right stuff is important, for me it’s sports and time with my family. I try to minimize energy consumption at home by turning off unnecessary lights and not letting the tap run when it’s not needed.”
“I travel a lot, but I try to do it as responsibly as possible. I use public transportation whenever possible and drive an electric car. I wish renewable aviation fuels would be adopted widely soon, because flying causes a lot of emissions.”
“I’ve been raised to appreciate nature. Now that I live abroad I’ve learned to appreciate the environment we have in Finland even more. Seasons are important to me, but climate change is a real threat to them – if we do nothing, we might not be able to enjoy them in the future.”
“I do my best to only buy what I need, and recycle a lot. At home in Chicago we recycle everything we can and try to minimize the waste our family produces. Recycling is an extremely easy way to minimize your carbon footprint.”
