Leave No Trace Ireland
Leave No Trace Ireland is a network of organisations and individuals with an interest in promoting the responsible recreational use of the outdoors. As increasing numbers of people seek the beauty and exhilaration of outdoor recreation, our collective mark on the environment and its natural processes, increases. Litter, disturbance to vegetation, water pollution, wildlife, livestock and other people are all indicators of the need to develop a national ethic that protects both natural and cultural heritage. Techniques designed to minimise the social and environmental impacts to these areas are incorporated into the Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics Education Programme as seven Principles.

Educational Charity
The Unicorn Foundation Trust was founded in 1991 as an educational charity, with the aim of proving that humanity can live in a sustainable way without making compromises on the quality of life, or paying more money for the privilege.
In 2000, after a lot of hard work, we established ourselves in the hills of Cork on a 150-acre site. Our dream of establishing an educational example of living comfortably with ecological and sustainable concepts, or permaculture, had become a reality. We began to develop the site as a micro-model, trialling a combination of new and old ideas that could be replicated on a larger scale, and built the first of our ecologically sound houses.
