Funding the Front Lines.


Protection. Preservation. Conservation. Restoration. Education. No matter how you word it, our great outdoors deserves the same kind of attention that we give to anything we truly care about.

Whether you support a unique RippleLife project or the missions of our other favorite approved Causes, you're helping create a needed balance between what we all give and take during our stay here on Earth.

The change created at RippleLife is 100% powered by you and the sky's the limit.

RippleLife's 'Bye Bye Butts' Cigarette Butt Redemption and Recycling Program

Cigarette butt litter is one of our biggest environmental pet-peeves and we're not alone! For those who share our disgust for this disrespectful assault on the places we all share, this project is a great opportunity to get your hands dirty with us. Together we will clean up our big blue playground, stop the damage cigarette butts inflict upon our eco-systems, and give butts a better second life. And since this has never been done before, you'll be a pioneer too!
