Sponsor a Hippo Roller at Project H

We have previously noted Project H, ""a charitable organization supporting product design initiatives for humanity, habitats, health, and happiness," founded by Inhabitat's Emily Pilloton.

Emily is running a campaign to find sponsors for Hippo Rollers, which Warren called a very clever "barrel-shaped container of UV stabilised polyethylene, designed to transport 90 litres (20 gallons) of water. It is said to be the equivalent of managing about 10 kgs (22 lbs), and this allows communities to move transport five times the quantity of water they used to for the same effort."

A hundred buck donation sends a roller with your name on it to the Kgautswane community of Northeast South Africa. Buy one at ::Project H; I just did.
