Our team: Yevgeniy Parfilko Anthony Parfilko Kathleen Ellis Our mission: To raise awareness of the Cool Earth organization and their efforts to prevent deforestation of rainforests. Our method: We're gonna do this by driving to Mongolia. In a car. Starting in England. Help fund the project to come along for the ride!
We're going to participate in the eco trend by decorating our car with recycled materials. We're planning on covering the top of our car in papier-mache tiles made out of old paper. The plan is to make a 'shell' of tiles so that the car looks like a turtle (hence the team name). For a donation of $30 or higher, you get your own tile! Your name will traverse all over the world, proudly displayed on the exterior of the car.
We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
