LifeStraw Donation

We had a wonderful Earth Day celebration with a lovely weather and plenty of activities. We sold many eco-shopping bags and part of the money was donated to buy LifeStraws.

What are LifeStraws in case you missed the poster with the explanation?

A portable water purifier that cleans most of the surface water and makes it safe for human consumption. If looks like a big straw and you can put it around your neck. If filters up to 700 liters of water, removing most of the micro-organisms responsible for causing waterborne diseases. Thus it prevents diseases such as typhoid, cholera, diarrhea and dysentery.

We collected $200 and we donated them to a charity IMA for a project to buy LifeStraws for people living in Eastern DR Congo where there is high risk of cholera. Our gift saved a life! 

Thank you!

Earth Day Celebration


PS 58 Earth Day Celebration is advertised on a great website - Ecobites - full of interesting articles and tips. More specifically, they have a section for kids with lots of activities to do. Go and check with your parents.

Go and check the article: The Carroll School (It will remain on the slide show for 24 hours - i.e. today - and then will drop down to the Green News from around the Globe - still on the front page).

See you at Earth Day!
