Dave and Young are driving across India in a 7 horsepower auto-rickshaw. We'll be traversing 4,500km of pothole filled roads, dodging cows, goats, ducks, small children, giant trucks and the infamous Indian buses, staying in $2 roach infested roadside motels and playing Russian roulette with the street food, all to save the rain forests. Actually, we're really doing this for fun, but we think this is an awesome charity that actually works. Cool Earth is an NGO which provides locals with resources needed to protect the forests they live in. Strategically linking villages together in a shield, they are able to protect millions of acres of forest.
We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
