ImpactAlpha, July 15 — Climate news got you down? New media outlets are putting a consumer spin on climate action (complementing ImpactAlpha’s solutions-focused investment news).

The Cool Down invites you to “consider us your in-the-know friend” to help sort out sustainable living strategies. TCD, as it calls itself, this week raised $5.7 million from Upfront Ventures, Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund and others for its media-cum-ecommerce foray.

Also this week, Pique Action, which claims 100,000 followers on TikTok, scored $1 million from climate-focused VC firm Amasia and others to produce short-form videos to inspire climate action.

“We are the opposite of doomscrolling,” said Pique’s Kip Pastor.

Another outlet offering consumer climate advice: Hothouse Solutions.
