Aquaplastics - Click to give clean water to Africa!

The success of the charity web site, www.aquaplastics.org, in raising € 150 000 for much needed water projects in Nigeria and Mali last year has prompted the European plastics industry to launch the project again in 2004. The site aims to surpass the 1.5 million clicks generated last year to raise 150 000 euro for the vital work of international charity WaterAid. As last year, Aquaplastics is being launched to coincide with World Water Day on the 22nd March. People across the world are invited to visit the site and help raise money by registering a click each day until the end of June. For every click, the European Plastics Industry (through APME, the Association of Plastics Manufacturers in Europe) will donate 10 cents to help WaterAid deliver clean water and sanitation to people in Madagascar and Malawi.
