WANT TO HELP EARTH TRANSFORM? -- The purpose of this group is to demonstrate a safe and vibrant path for transformation to global sustainable eco-living. -- Thus all the group's members MUST volunteer, either online and / or in realtime, to help internationally, or for local meetups, etc. As we each engage in social transformation, we are able to share our own personal experience with those exploring their own lifestyle transitions.

We aim to be gentle, yet clear and decisive. We help members become better photographers and stronger humans, as we collectively help to restore and protect NATURE and live sustainably. Our photos and art images vibrate with energy as together, we develop a new way of being! Always think: ~ ***Earthcare ACTIONS VOLUNTEERS! ~ 'FIRST-THE EARTH!'
