1) Raise awareness about the possibility of an ocean oil spill happening along the oil tanker routes in the Salish Sea. That is near Seattle, WA. The Salish Sea is habitat for more than 100 endangered or threatened species. They include the only 80 endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales (orcas) left on Earth. 2) Share the results with the public so they understand the risk of ocean oil spills. Encourage people to reduce use of oil products and use more alternative energy. 3) Share data and final report with oil spill experts at NOAA, universities, and marine organizations to understand the risks. 4) Share project with President Obama and other lawmakers. Ask them to make laws to prevent oil spills, stop arctic drilling, and encourage alternative energy.

The H2Origami campaign was set in motion May 2011 when, following a viewing of the movie Tapped, Resources for Health Roots & Shoots youth leaders learned of Nestlé’s plan to bottle water from the Gorge and sell it to consumers at a 1500% profit. After hosting a guest talk to learn more about the issue from Food and Water Watch’s Julia DeGraw, group members began folding origami embellished with water protection messages to ask Governor Kitzhaber to put a halt to Nestlé’s plan. The origami represents Gorge wildlife that would be negatively impacted by the bottling plant, as well as drinking cups signifying the importance and simplicity of taking back the tap by choosing reusable drinking vessels over plastic bottles. RFH Roots & Shoots youth have used the project to raise awareness about Nestlé’s efforts to bottle the Gorge with outreach events at the Beaverton Library, Whole Foods Tanasbourne, Portland VegFest, and the Pacific Northwest Roots & Shoots Summit with Dr. Jane Goodall. Using craft paper wall murals to display the outspoken paper wildlife, they captivated audiences by teaching citizens of all ages to make H2Origami to contribute to the displays. The group anticipates more local campaigning ahead following the Oregon Water Resources Department’s February 29th approval of two of the three necessary OWRD permits for the Nestle Water Bottling Plant.

Our project will increase the number of native plants on campus, increase the number of wildlife that use the plants, and educate fellow students, staff and community about the importance of going native in gardens and park ways. We will create a demonstration garden and signs and posters that exhibit how each plant contributes to the ecosystem, conserves water and prevents extinction.

Our educational campaign will use Facebook, a social network that connects people of all ages.
