Mission

We’re here to build an international culture that is both rich in community and wise in its approach to the environment. This culture is not drawn on geographical boundaries nor is it mediated through political lines, but instead is directed by the actions of our Ecological Servants; an aspiring group of men, and women driven by their concern for the planet.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Water scarcity effects millions of people every year and the problem is only getting worse. Food shortages, famine, drought, and desertification are just some of the problems this creates. Join us in our mission to change this for the world as we set the example for change in East Africa.

Population(s) Served

Dedicated to the conservation and protection of our coastal wetlands. Help us document and maintain these most precious eco-systems.

Population(s) Served

Discarded cigarette butts leech toxic chemicals into our soil and waterways, such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium, as well as a variety of other polyaromatic hydrocarbons that are harmful to aquatic life.

It's time to change that.

We're encouraging our volunteers to collect and save littered cigarette butts for recycling. It’s a simple way to make a major difference and you can do it in 3 easy steps.

It’s a simple as this:

1. Collect between 1-10 lbs. of littered cigarette butts and be sure to keep them out of the reach of children.

2. Call us at 1-866-230-4066.

3. We’ll send you a free shipping label from our partner Terra-cycle and you send the butts off to be recycled.

When your shipment is received, the contents are sorted and processed into plastic pellets that are used to create new recycled products such as park benches, picnic tables and even shipping pallets.

We also install cigarette butt recycling receptacles across our community.

Population(s) Served

Do you live in California and need to fulfill court ordered community service hours?

Are you annoyed by the litter you have to drive by every day?

Then maybe it’s time to pull that car over and do something about it.

Join the ESP’s Adopt-A-Highway Group today.

Volunteers must be over the age of eighteen to be considered for this opportunity and willing to volunteer on a monthly basis.

Volunteers are encouraged to wear masks, even when fully vaccinated and to maintain social distancing during these cleanups.

All Adopt-A-Highway Volunteers will be required to wear the safety equipment we provide, which is furnished by Caltrans for our roadside cleanup activities.

Adopt-A-Highway Volunteers are required to complete our safety orientation or off site training before volunteering.

We put your safety as our top priority.

Thank You.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We plan to create a replicable framework in East Africa that yields food security, aids in water conservation, and reverses desertification.

We're raising money to purchase and build a School of Agriculture and General Ecology on an 800-acre lot near Isiolo, Kenya. We'll be regreening this desert lot and its adjoined drylands with a combination of techniques that incorporate permaculture, FMNR, and holistic planned grazing. This will in-turn restore the soils ability to capture and store carbon as we create a functional ecosystem here.

This school will provide the educational opportunities that these children desperately need, while equipping them with the tools, and resources that will lead to sustainable agricultural and animal husbandry practices in the region.

The Isiolo School of Agriculture and General Ecology will be a lifeline to its surrounding community as we work to provide for the nutritional and freshwater needs of our students and their families. This will in turn permit the students families to allow them to get an education that empowers them, instead of sending them off to fetch contaminated water for the family.

The school will serve as a hub for innovation in the area as we work to create solutions that address the water crisis here while serving the communities that are impacted most.

We expect this school to be self-sufficient within two calendar years of its foundation and able to generate enough revenue to cover its own operational expenses through the sale of produce and craft goods.

Your gracious support will help to make this vision a reality for thousands of children just like Medina.

We first must secure the necessary funding for this project to occur, so we have
begun the process of reaching out to every human being and organization that we
can possibly ask for funding.

We realize that we have a long road ahead, so we're making some preparations to get us started.

We've obtained several thousand fundraising brochures to start handing out to begin
the process of raising funds for our school. We're also in the process of connecting with
biologists, ecologists, and hydrologists from across the world to implement the schools
design and to find qualified staff.

We have the capacity to meet our goal of building the Isiolo School of Agriculture and
General Ecology.

We currently do not have the funding to do so.

We have established the framework by which we will restore the dryland and adjoined desert that the school
will be built upon. We have designed the school to not only be an educational institution, but the building itself
will be structurally designed to collect and store large volumes of rain water when it rains and then it will also generate water from the moisture in the air when there is no rain.

We are networking and we are fundraising. Join us in our efforts. We need you.
