The Plan - how to actually save the world : This October David , Mick & Steven will do the do their bit for saving the world. We intend to jump on the bandwagon (rickshaw) as “we must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck”. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about the carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent. Cool Earth knows fundraising is the hard part and rich uncles with deep pockets are few and far between. So if you’d like to do your bit whilst we take the punctures it would be massively appreciated.
If you don’t want to do it for the children and the trees then what about the monkeys and elephants.
We hope to traverse from the north to the south of Sri Lanka in a Rickshaw . The engines on our little beasties are an impressively pathetic 10.5bhp. They have tiny wheels, shite ground clearance and bad suspension. They have no real protection from the elements. And they're incredibly unreliable.
All of this pretty much guarantees something will go wrong. Which is where we will find out what we're really made of. Hopefully it's stern stuff.
