As of March 10, 2015, Blacksmith Institute will officially be known by the name – Pure Earth. When the organization was founded in 1999, the goal was to go tackle toxic pollution problems in low- and middle-income countries. The mission remains the same and this new name expresses the goals of the organization in two words – Pure Earth.
All of the information and resources found on the Blacksmith Institute website can now be found on the Pure Earth website. The Blacksmith Institute site will remain live until all our global offices have had a chance to transition to the new name, but the site will no longer be updated. Project partners and governmental organizations, as well as our donors who know us as by our old name have been notified of the name change to Pure Earth.
