Tree Sisters

Tree Sisters is a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the restoration of our tropical forests as a collective expression of planetary care. As a feminine leadership and tropical reforestation organization, they exist to call forth the brilliance and generosity of women everywhere and channel it towards the trees. Their goal is to make it as normal for everyone to give back to nature as it currently is to take nature for granted. Their goal is to go from planting one million trees per year to planting one billion trees per year. With 80% of our primary global forests gone, we need to sequester atmospheric carbon as fast as we can. Trees replenish groundwater and rivers, protect biodiversity, soil and livelihoods, and support healthy ocean temperatures. They represent one of the best solutions we have to escalating climate disruption. Find out more here.

Earth Guardians

Earth Guardians began as an accredited high school in Maui, Hawaii in 1992, focusing on environmental awareness and action in its core curriculum. Students studied the history of social movements and took action to restore sandalwood forests and shut down the toxic practice of burning sugar cane. The school became recognized throughout the Hawaiian Islands and beyond, with the Dalai Lama presenting the Children's Torch of Hope to twenty-five Earth Guardian students. Seeing the need to empower and give voice to a wider audience prompted Earth Guardians to relocate to Colorado in 1997 and engage more young people in programs to empower and amplify their voice. Earth Guardians began teaching youth about the involvement in political action and activism, working to stop the spraying of pesticides in public parks, establishing an environmental fee on plastic bags, advocating for municipalizing Boulder's energy grid, and helping to achieve a moratorium on fracking. Earth Guardians received a great deal of press and attention for local actions, allowing the organization to expand into national and international work. Find out more here.

Kiss the Ground

Kiss the Ground works to build back our soil by supporting its biological life, leading to biodiverse thriving ecosystems, water infiltration (drought resistance), increased prosperity for farmers, a healthy carbon cycle, nutritious foods. Soil brings us food, clothing, shelter, and helps keep our water cycle healthy. It’s also an important part of reversing global warming. Kiss the Ground empowers people to restore soil and helps accelerate the adoption of regenerative agriculture. According to the UN, we have less than 60 harvests left. In the United States on average we are losing 4 tons of topsoil per acre, per year on our cropland. Soil degradation leads to less nutritious food, reduced water infiltration, loss of biodiversity, smaller farm profits, carbon release, extreme weather events, and the heat island effect.
