The Problem

This is a multi-category project. By collecting bottles-the environment is helped with reduced waste and reusing materials. By donating the deposit fee to Cool Earth we: buy acreage in a Peruvian Rainforest, save animals in the forest, help indigenous people remain in the forest and save trees that offset carbon emissions.

Our Plan

I have been collecting recyclable bottles from classrooms in school. Not everyone uses reusable bottles. That should be my next PSA! Each bottle yields 5 cents which I accrue to donate to CoolEarth, a foundation that saves rainforest acreage. I have saved 2.5 acres so far.
