All living organisms on earth depend on water for survival, but our global water supplies are both dwindling and being polluted.

One important way is the ancient practice of rainwater harvesting.

Join The No Trash Left Behind Campaign

Most travelers find ourselves on land that is not our original home. This is all Native Land, and the precious opportunity to explore and recreate on this land is a debt that must be repaid. Reparations and land acknowledgements are examples, but you can also do your part in a hands-on way. Participating in our #NoTrashLeftBehind campaign during Earth Month, and anytime you find yourself outside, is how you can begin to repay that land debt everyday.
