Captain Planet Foundation
The mission of the Captain Planet Foundation is to inspire and support hands-on, environmental projects for children and youth all around the world.
The objective is to encourage innovative programs that empower children and youth to work individually and collectively to solve the myriad of environmental problems in their neighborhoods and communities. Through high quality and experiential education, we believe children can achieve a better understanding and appreciation for the world in which they live.
What do we do?
In 2009, CPF funded 76 hands-on, environmental education projects. Grantees recycled over 12 tons of waste, originally bound for overcrowded landfills. They established 34 outdoor classrooms and organic gardens including pollinator gardens, native habitats, fruit, herb and vegetable gardens. Grantees restored over 13 acres of land with organized clean-ups, removal of invasive species and restoring native flora. The work of the 2009 grantees spanned across 24 states and internationally.
