History and Accomplishments of Earthtrust

Michael Bailey and Rick Thorpe of Earthtrust assessing environmental damage
in the oil fields of Kuwait shortly after the end of the Gulf War in 1991.
Earthtrust was the first environmental organization in Kuwait following the war.

Earthtrust projects have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Earthtrust exists to innovate, to act, to establish a solution to the problem addressed, and then to see that solution integrated into new or existing systems. No Earthtrust campaign exists without a strategy or goes on forever, although some time scales may be measured in weeks and others in decades.

Seeking closure on completed campaigns is necessary to keep overhead low and innovation fresh. What follows is a brief review of some past campaigns which in part comprise Earthtrust's extraordinary track record.
