Earth Restoration Service is a global charity fully committed to repairing the environment. Its approach is proactive and practical, forming partnerships with schools, community groups, government agencies, other charities and businesses.
Recently, the organisation launched a campaign to empower a million people around the world. The aim is to make them look beyond just reducing their carbon footprint and take positive action towards helping to restore the environment. ‘Positive Handprint’ examples include volunteering for reforestation projects, cleaning up beaches, wildlife habitat creation or even donating to an environmental cause.
“We believe that the current population of six billion Handprints can make this world verdant, beautiful and full of life,” explains Andreas Kornevall, Director of Operations. “We’re an optimistic campaign, believing that humans have the same power to restore as they do to destroy.”
In July, patron Joanna Lumley called upon 300,000 people attending a series of Live Nation concerts in London, to ‘put their hands up for restoring the Earth.’ Fans of Blur, The Killers and Neil Young, watched a film narrated by the actress, encouraging them to sign up to the campaign. “At just one minute long, it’s short and charming,” Joanna exclaimed, “but its message is powerful, compelling and very important.”
By signing up online, members will be informed about all the things they can do to restore their local community and be part of a truly global movement. Projects do not have to be large to be effective. Once harmful activity is halted and mending begins, Nature’s own restorative power will be released to continue the recovery.
