Ripples is based on the “ripple effect” idea that small actions can ripple outward and create a better world.  We are an emerging educational center with our future headquarters in a sustainable earthbag building in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains, USA.  Ripples empowers a global network of individuals and organizations working on a variety of non-profit causes to make as many ripples as possible, at the local, national and international level.  Our 100% solar-powered website includes a blog, a newspaper column, resources, and services for individuals and organizations.
