EarthWalk 2014 supports the programs of Bridging The Gap (BTG), Kansas City's environmental education and action organization.
At BTG, we educate citizens, businesses and governments about the impact their decisions have on our environment, and help them follow through with direct action to make our world, region and community green, healthy and sustainable.

- maintaining the lively involvement of 75 corporations in sustainability and waste-sharing through the Environmental Excellence Business Network and By-Product Synergy
- helping to place 500+ rain barrels at homes each year
- presenting environmental principles to thousands with Five Green Things
- engaging more than 2,700 volunteers annually at more than 100 events, doing the hard, physical work it takes to really improve our environment.
