Together we make a difference

My name is Lisette. I started Mother's Earth because I saw how our planet is deteriorating.

Every day I saw images of pollution, animal cruelty, poverty and neglect.

This gave me such a powerless feeling

Do you recognise that, too? That prevailing feeling of "Surely I can and should be able to make a positive and changing contribution to this?"

However, when I became aware that I, as well as you (or we), can indeed make a difference by changing our behaviour, this feeling of powerlessness changed.

Turning our emotions into decisiveness, action, positive impact and hope

With Mother's Earth we want to make this difference, together with you.
