Let's Get Dirty...
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation invites you to "Get Dirty"!
In 2007 the country of Estonia launched the "Let’s Do It" Clean Up Initiative where 50,000 Estonians came together to clean up the country in one day and accomplished what would have taken the government 3 years and 22 millions EU. The initiative collected 10,000 tons of trash that was polluting their communities.
After watching their inspiring project clean up video 2007 "Let’s Do It" Clean Up Initiative in Estonia, Ian was compelled to initiate a Clean Up initiative in the United States. After months of preparation, The Ian Somerhalder Foundation is proud to announce its “Let’s get Dirty” Initiative. Sometimes you have to Get Dirty before you get CLEAN
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation aims to join more than 2000 schools in a state wide effort to clean up local communities throughout the state of California while supporting the clean up efforts of partner organisations
on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 to Clean Up the state of California. With support from cities, counties, local businesses, youth associations, schools, non-profit organizations and individuals, we do have the power to impact our planet.
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation’s Let’s Get Dirty Initiative aims to create a shift of consciousness in how we perceive ourselves as delineated entities from the environment and highlight how our daily choices as consumers create the environmental issues humanity is facing. It’s about understanding that every choice you make is a vote either for or against the kind of world you wish to live in. It’s about harnessing the power of choice.
