Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival

Our REcycled Bubble Tower made the front page of the Grand Island Independent newspaper:

Our REcycled Bubble Tower is a combination of our COW  and COFFEE Bubble Towers.  Combining a reclaimed, repurposed, out dated billboard vinyl and dozens of colorful burlap and jute coffee bean bags from around the world,  with bright and color filled patches of discarded polyester table cloths from the rental linen industry.  I really like the fade resistant bright colors AND we get to keep some polyesters from languishing in a landfill !

Bubbles!  A photographers best friend!
Photographer Barrett Stinson from the Grand Island Independent newspaper collects names for the newspaper.

The Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival featured dozens of stations dedicated to water quality, safety and responsibility.  Our Bubble Tower was the center of attraction during the student’s visit and presented an opportunity for them to experience the opportunities presented by a solar powered attraction made from reclaimed and repurposed materials.

Over 900 students from some two dozen schools participated in the educational and FUN event.  I am so grateful that we could be a part of the experience.  THANK YOU Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival !

For the teachers, I offered a handout of water use trivia , detailing the amount of water required to produce various food items.

    How much is this bubble tower? Is this a product for sale or for hire? We host a four day Water Festival in El Paso, TX and am curious how to get one.
    Thanks,
    Diane

    Our REcycled-reclaimed, solar powered, Bubble Tower was a huge hit at the Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival in Grand Island on May 8th and the Southeast Colorado Children’s Water Festival in Pueblo May 10.

    Both the Grand Island Independent and the Pueblo Chieftain newspapers gave us front page coverage and photos!

    The Recycled-reclaimed Bubble Tower is a hybrid of our COW BT and COFFEE Bubble Towers made from reclaimed billboard vinyl, jute and burlap coffee bean bags from around the world, and reclaimed polyester table cloths from the linen rental industry.

    Our Rainbow Bubble Tower was a huge hit at the 4th annual CLEAR CREEK WATERSHED FESTIVAL! Fun, free environmental education for the whole family! Saturday, September 15, 2012   Idaho Springs, CO
