Multi-Pure is a proud partner of “Environmental Education Week” this week, which involves thousands of educators and millions of students across the United States to increase environmental learning and stewardship of our planet.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Multi-Pure and Earth Day this year, a new online curriculum unit has been created which includes free activities and lesson plans that introduce a broad history of the environmental movement. You can also find a Student Fact Sheet which provides facts and figures to help illustrate the intimate connection between water and energy and is appropriate for students in grades 6-12.
The Field Museum’s interactive, online Water Calculator provides an in-depth look at water use in the home. As students make their way through the virtual house, they click on various water-using appliances and answer questions about their water use while also learning fun water-saving tips. At the end, the student’s total score is compared to both the national average and the average of other water calculator users. Students may also contribute to the Water Stories blog.
You can find all of this and more at our partner’s web site: http://www.eeweek.org/ Together, we can all reduce our carbon footprint and make a positive difference in the world!
Did you know that Multi-Pure uses carbon made out of coconut husk fibers? It’s the safest kind of carbon AND it’s biodegradable AND a renewable resource! Yep, Multi-Pure has always been GREEN, long before it was fashionable to be so! How many coconuts does it take to make a Multi-Pure cartridge? Well, the answer is 10! Happy Earth Day on April 22, 2010!
