All of our restoration work in Madagascar is done by hand using the personal tools of the community members we hire. Maintaining dozens of miles of firebreaks and digging hundreds of Foxhole Forests takes a toll on equipment, so we replace community members' tools when they break. By "purchasing" this item, you're actually donating funds to help us replace the personal shovel of someone who helped us restore rainforest.
New Shovel (Madagascar)
Items featured in our "Wishlist" store with the "For Us" ribbon are things we need to help us restore endangered ecosystems. When you "buy" one of these items, you're donating the funds we need to purchase that item.
Wistlist items range from physical products (like GPS units or shovels) to units of restoration (like a Micro-Prairie in the Palouse or a Foxhole Forest in Madagascar) to general support (like a day of food for community members helping restore rainforest or coffee for our Palouse crew).
