Summary
Kenya Rain Harvesting- Masai women in Kenya are harvesting rainwater and collecting it in tanks, which has improved water supplies and done away with the daily trek to collect river water. Organic Mattresses- Welsh sheep are noisy but very hardy. Native to wales and its sometimes harsh environment, they are tough little animals with soft pure fleece. Their wool is keenly sought-after for a variety of uses. The strength and purity of the wool has helped a small welsh company realize its dream to produce truly organic bedding. Green Donkeys- the 14th century town of Castelbuono is already top of the list for recycling in Sicily, and the mayor has enlisted the services of Teresa the donkey and three of her friends in the battle against Pollution. Yangtze Pollution- Stretching 6,000 kilometres, China's mighty Yangtze river is the world's third longest. Sadly it is also one of the dirtiest, the result of people, pollution and dams. It absorbs 40% of China's waste water from factories, fields and city sewers that run beside it. The pollution is killing the fish and endangering the health of millions of people. Chile Earthworms- With water an increasingly precious commodity, the humble earthworm could well prove to be an environmental hero. A chemical free alternative to treating human and industrial waste, the worms are so effective they've joined the workforce of some of chili's largest companies. US E-waste- The United States Government estimates that Americans generate more than three-million tons of electronic waste every year. UK Wind Power- Rising 108 metres above sea level, these wind turbines are the very visible face of Britain's first offshore commercial wind farm, powering over 30,000 homes
