What is Tera?
Tera is empowering people to lower carbon emissions and save the planet through lifestyle changes, shopping green and taking action
Hi! This is Bernard Louvat, Founder and CEO of Tera. Thank you for visiting our site.
We launched Tera on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22nd, 2020, after 9 months of hard work. Some parts of the site are still under construction and the site is improving every day and with more than 1,500 curated articles on climate change and environmental issues, how to live more sustainably and environmental activism, it is already the most complete online resource on Sustainability.
So what is Tera?
Tera is a platform that empowers people to save our Planet from global warming by lowering their carbon footprint through lifestyle and consumption changes, and by taking action to create systemic business and political change.
LEARN ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
In Climate Change, you will learn about the dramatic environmental crisis humans have created and why it threatens the survival of life on Earth. You will learn why stopping climate change is such an emergency. You will learn about the climate change solutions that exist to address this crisis. And you will access up to date climate and environmental news to stay in the know.
MAKE PERSONAL LIFESTYLE CHANGES
In Live Sustainably, you will learn about the many ways you can make small and big changes to your lifestyle and consumption to live a healthier and more sustainable life and soon use tools that will help you make and track those changes and your carbon footprint.
CHANGE HOW YOU CONSUME: BUY LESS, BUY CONSCIOUSLY, BUY GREEN
In Shop Green, you will discover a marketplace of curated eco-friendly and ethical brands that are doing a terrific job at manufacturing awesome green products while minimizing the carbon footprint of their supply chain. You will be able to search them by values and eco-certifications. And soon you will be able to buy them on the site.
PRACTICE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISM AND SUPPORT NON-PROFITS
In Take Action, you will learn about the many ways you can act locally, amplify your voice on social media or petition your elected officials to support badly needed environmental laws. We citizens, consumers, need to drive the necessary systemic changes as businesses and politicians have failed us. Time is of the essence. More than you think.
CONNECT WITH LIKEMINDED PEOPLE
Finally in Community you will be able to post and connect with other users, brands, NPOs and bloggers and personalize your feed of information and content.
My hope is that Tera becomes a very large and active global community of passionate people, businesses and environmental non-profits all united around a common goal to fight climate change and create a more sustainable green economy with no fossil fuels.
