Driven by 50,000 plus volunteers globally, Earth5R is one of the largest citizen-led environmental movements. Earth5R focuses on creating Circular Economy based Zero Waste communities, while reducing poverty and restoring the local ecosystem.
With a specific focus on local communities and economic inclusion Earth5R works with citizens in meeting needs and addressing sustainability issues that affect their local ecosystem.
The 5Rs of Earth5R
The 5Rs of Earth5R refer to 5 Earth values:
Respect, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Restore.
These 5Rs define the entire gamut of sustainable development.
It's our mission to create sustainable communities while reducing poverty and restoring the local ecosystem.
Take Action: Mindful consumption
Our shopping behaviour directly impacts the environment.
For example - The fashion industry produces 10% of all humanity's carbon emissions, is the second-largest consumer of the world's water supply, and pollutes the oceans with microplastics.
What We Do
Earth5R brings a fresh perspective on ‘Sustainable Development’ which emphasises collaborative citizen-led initiative. Our programs strengthen the implementation of United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, bringing communities together and developing a symbiotic ecosystem, that is beautifully driven by different stakeholders.

I’m impressed by the young people involved in this program who are putting in their time and effort to take action.
Congratulations! This is an amazing project. It’s a great example of circular economy model in action. I would like to bring your project to Costa Rica.
This is an outstanding project! The fact that the Earth5R program is completely citizen-driven makes it a lot more sustainable and effective. We would like to have this program in every country!
Exceptional work by the Earth5R team. The women empowerment model that generates livelihood while solving the plastic waste problem is a great example of a circular economy in action.
This year Earth5R will take 100 students on a Fellowship program from all over the globe.
