Steam's latest sale supports Greenpeace and other environmental organizations

Steam's latest sale comes in recognition of the UN's World Environment Day, and generally encompasses games which have water or greenery in them, such as Raft, Equilinox, Flower, and Samorost 3.

The sale was set up by Fugl developer Johan Gjestland, and a portion of the revenue from participating games will be donated to "organizations like Greenpeace, World Land Trust and The Nature Conservatory." 

Two games are offering additional donations. During the sale, 15 percent of Subnautica's profits will be donated to The Ocean Cleanup, an organization which is devising technology to capture and remove ocean plastics, and One Tree Planted will plant one tree for each copy of Playne sold.

The sale runs until 4 pm Pacific on June 7, and you can find all of the participating games here

Subnautica's a good game, if you hadn't heard, and picking it up at 30 percent off during this sale would be a very reasonable thing to do. 

Since I have a moment with the topic, and without suggesting that this is a sufficient salve to all our interlocking global crises, I also recommend composting, gardening along permaculture principles, and sharing food with your community if you can. I'm going to go water my plants now.
