KISS THE GROUND
The solution is right under our feet
Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an award winning film revealing that by regenerating the world’s soils we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.
