Take Action with Rodan + Fields
Plant Trees Worldwide and Advocate for Environmental Equality
Serve with buildOn and the Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change Foundation by exploring environmental justice and promoting afforestation and biodiversity in underserved communities. We’re calling you to take action by planting a buildOn tree with our custom tree kits and creating pollinating seed cards.
In neighborhoods around the world, citizens from underserved communities are experiencing disproportionate levels of environmental degradation.
For example, our South Bronx students often wait for a bus to school or live in an area dubbed “Asthma Alley.” The nickname alludes to the fact that this neighborhood has some of the worst air pollution levels in the U.S. due to nearby factories and highways, and a lack of green space. Consequently, asthma hospitalizations are five times the national average and at rates 21 times higher than other New York City neighborhoods.
This is just one story of environmental injustice. In all of the areas where buildOn works throughout the world, you will find similar stories of neighborhoods with unusually high air pollution and lack of biodiversity resulting in lower quality of life.
Join the Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change Foundation and take action on environmental justice issues in our communities and around the world!
