The OurEarth.org website began as a simple idea to make it easier for the public to find environmental information. There are outstanding environmental programs, activities, initiatives, ideas, and grassroots efforts across the country but it can be difficult to sort through all of the websites and information available. As a result, important natural resources, energy savings, and pollutant reductions are lost each and every day, causing unnecessary damage to our planet.
OurEarth.org, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit environmental organization based in Baltimore, Maryland. The organization was founded in 2006 by several recent graduates of Johns Hopkins University and today, OurEarth.org is led by an all-volunteer team of graduate and medical students as well as environmental experts and leaders from around the country. The organization also involves undergraduate and graduate students from over 40 U.S. college campuses.
