Big World Small Planet

Big World Small Planet launched a purified drinking water program at a primary school in rural Nicaragua in April. The focus was to provide each of the children with their own refillable water bottle, educating them on the value of purified water (vs the well water of which they are so accustomed) as well as encouraging them to make the best choices possible when it comes to nourishing their bodies. A water dispenser was set up in the school and weekly deliveries of purified water will continue to support the program. They also introduced yoga to the children during this visit and will continue to have a yoga class once a week. Manduka donated our stainless steel canteens so that each student would have their own refillable water bottle!
