The Ian Somerhalder Foundation
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.
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 organisationson Saturday, April 21st, 2012 to Clean Up the state of California.
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.
