‘El Salvador’ translates as ‘The Salviour’ in English : )
Did it save us?
Friends of the Earth El Salvador
We volunteered at Friends of the Earth El Salvador aka. CESTA in San Salvador;
with their project ‘Eco Bici’ we fixed up some bikes from Canada and the USA and re-organised their amazing bicycle museum.
We also did a research of alternative uses of tires, as CESTA wants to launch a campaign for alternative uses of tires and against burning tyres, which is thee practice of ‘Holcim’ a multinational that produces cement by -among other things- burning tyres.
Below the result of our research, an essay and presentation in Spanish, typed up by Alex and Ina.
And a document about something else we learned at CESTA: how-to-make empanadas! yum!
