After hearing about Cindy and Brian Neprash's UP Flower Power for Clean Water project, a TV station in Maine picked up on the story and shared the good news.
Cindy and Brian have taken reduce, reuse, recycle to the next level after witnessing the ill effects of unclean water at Vusumzi Primary School. To raise funds to install a brand new water purification and filtration system at the K-7 school, Cindy and Brian used their ingenuity to manufacture flowers from vinyl records and other donated, decorative pieces. The system was installed in October 2014 and has provided clean water for drinking, washing, plumbing, and upkeep of the school grounds. Since the installation, the children have not missed one day of school due to drought or other water issues.
