We all know that our planet is not in the best shape currently. All the unpredictable weather, air pollution, land waste and ocean waste is a clear indication of where we are at. 

And it's definitely time we take action on it. We can no longer relax and wait for things to get better! Which is why we're so glad for the existence of these NGOs that are working to make the environment better. 

While some are working to solve land waste problems, others are trying to plant as many trees as possible (because lord knows we're running out). So, take a look and read on to see the kind of wonderful work they're doing.
