Earth Party tries to inspire people to be aware of our environment and cognizant of local programs that preserve our local ecology and encourage global responsibility for our planet. The Earth Party offers numerous sustainability initiatives and ways of offsetting carbon principally focusing on community based solutions that lead to social, environmental, and economic stability. They choose the groups they work with based on their commitment to these values and our natural ecology, hoping to bring people together who are motivated to preserve the life systems that preserve us. Also, through The Carbon Store they sell products to offset carbon and lessen your carbon footprint.
