The Rainforest Connection
Saving the rainforest used to be the rallying cry of environmentalists all over the world. While the hot button issue for these same environmentalists lies on fuel and alternative energy, the rainforest still needs help! That is why the Rainforest Connection is so important. This campaign utilizes old and recycled smartphones for usage as rainforest protection devices. They are mounted up across the different forests and powered via solar energy. These phones are then connected to each other in order to maintain a network that alerts people of destructive and illegal logging in protected territory. The project was a hit and raised over $167,000 in funding.
