[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Project Description”]

Essential Question:

How can we help the Earth by helping humanity?

Impact Statement:

We have successfully served Colegio Vaca Diez, a poor school in Santa Cruz, in over eight months by using plastic bottles to create and donate furniture for the children. In order to accomplish our goal, we interviewed different people until finding someone who could help increase our knowledge about plastic. We raised money by selling homemade brownies and cake, and recollected plastic bottles throughout our community—this helped us put together various pieces of furniture with the use of packing tape, bottles, cardboard, and optional fabric to cover the stools we built.
