Earth Ethics

Earth Ethics recognizes the surrounding environment and other species as family. Therefore, the natural environment is held in the highest regard and with great respect. We encourage others to include actions that reflect this philosophy. As a 501 c3 nonprofit organization we spread the practice of Earth Ethics on a community level by education, outreach, and promoting environmental improvement. It is our hope to improve the quality of interaction between humans and their surrounding environment through these efforts.

People’s Water Project

The People’s Water Project (PWP) is a group of organizers, researchers, lawyers, environmental scientists, advocates, and community members working together to combat water inequities and fight for bold, reparative changes that challenge corporate power and address issues of water affordability and accessibility, water quality and water privatization in low-income and BIPOC communities.

The People’s Water Project is calling on the Biden Administration to reject the recommendation of the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council to “remove barriers to privatization” of public water systems. The National Infrastructure Advisory Council’s recent recommendations would make it easier for private water corporations to access key public funds and place communities at further risk of water privatization. This is dangerous because water privatization removes public control and community oversight of water systems, jeopardizing public accountability. For communities, privatization has all too often led to unaffordable water bills and cost-cutting measures that endanger public health and safety. Read our full press release here.

Plastic Pollution Campaign

Earth Ethics is part of the plastic pollution coalition! If you are unfamiliar with the coalition, “Plastic Pollution Coalition (PPC) is a growing global alliance of more than 700 organizations, businesses, and thought leaders in 60 countries working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impact on humans, animals, waterways, and oceans, and the environment.” We are also a community affiliate of Beyond Plastics. Beyond Plastics “is a nationwide project based at Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont, that pairs the wisdom and experience of environmental policy experts with the energy and creativity of grassroots advocates to build a vibrant and effective movement to end plastic pollution. We use our deep policy and advocacy expertise to build a well-informed, effective movement seeking to achieve the institutional, economic, and societal changes needed to save our planet, and ourselves, from the negative health, climate, and environmental impacts of the production, usage, and disposal of plastics.”

We are so excited to be part of these wonderful coalitions. We’ve been working for years to educate the public on the impacts of plastics on our environment and our public health. Nationally, steps are being taken to ban the use of plastic bags, bottles, and microbeads. We are working to educate individuals, organizations, and restaurants to stop the use of plastic straws, plastic bags, and plastic bottles. Contact if you’re interested in helping with outreach and education efforts!

What we are up to:

Our outreach and education campaign addresses plastic use and consumption, impacts to the environment, marine species, and public health. We are working to educate individuals and restaurants to transition from using plastic straws, stirrers, and other single-use plastics.

E.A.T.  Cat and Dog  Food Pantry

With $25,000 in seed money from the Pepsi Refresh Grant Program to start a food pantry for cats and dogs along the gulf coast, the  E.A.T. Cat and Dog Food Pantry Program provides assistance to families in need from having to relinquish their pets due to financial constraints. In addition, E.A.T. Cat and Dog Food Pantry Program assists those who take care of abandoned or stray cats.

Partners in this effort include, Junior Humane Society, Mobile SPCA (Alabama), Hotel for Dogs & Cats, Animal Rescue Fund (Mississippi), and Emerald Coast Animal Allies.

The program is sustained through monetary or dry food donations. To make a monetary donation, please visit the donate page of this website. If you want to donate dry food, email

As part of our animal advocacy work, we belief in the promotion of Humane Education.  Humane education teaches us how to instill compassion, integrity, and respect while examining the challenges facing our planet, from human oppression/social justice issues, and animal exploitation to materialism and ecological degradation.

It enables us to find solutions to live ethically, sustainably, and peaceably with everyone: not just our friends and neighbors, but all people; not just our own dogs and cats, but all animals; not just our own homes, but also the earth itself, our ultimate home.

As always, if you are interested in learning more or in volunteering to support these endeavors, please email us at
