Virtual Earth Day Program: Build Your Own Rain Harvesting System

Virtual Earth Day Program: Build Your Own Rain Harvesting System Online

Celebrate Earth Day with Us and Learn How to Build Your Own Rain Harvesting System!

 As a way to recognize and celebrate Earth Day and increase awareness around plastic waste and water conservation, come join us for a virtual program to learn how to create a rainwater harvesting system for your community.

 High school student Madeline Abrams has developed an environmentally friendly and economically accessible way to capture rainwater using otherwise discarded plastic water bottles to create an irrigation system for vegetable gardens, farms and landscapes.

 Here is a link to the website she created, Harvest Every Drop, to share her invention: http://harvesteverydrop.com

 Madeline recently presented her rainwater harvesting system virtually to 45 communities in New York, California, Uganda, Namibia, Lesotho, Angola and South Africa. Her invention is being shared with villages and communities as a way to conserve water and address the issue of upcycling plastic waste that has become a major problem in many parts of the world. An article about Madeline’s system was published earlier this month in an international Rotary magazine covering Uganda.

 

After the Zoom presentation, Madeline will share the instructional video she created as a reference to build her watering system to help communities harvest every drop.

Register today!  A zoom link will be sent out prior to the presentation!
