Josh Smith: Encouraging Students to Grow their Food

Josh Smith is an American visionary, inventor and entrepreneur who invented greenhouses which uses the maximum potential of natural elements like the sunlight, air, and water. He established his company called Modular Greenhouses in Reno, Nevada, and has been in the business for several years now. He is providing greenhouses to those who would like to learn more about growing their own food, and he stated that the demand for such greenhouses is increasing every year. The business is growing for Josh Smith, and he thanked his loyal customers for supporting his products and for making positive reviews through the internet and word of mouth that gave him the exposure.

With the success of his company, Josh Smith decided to give back to the community. One of his projects as a philanthropist is to educate the population about the importance of keeping a greenhouse and growing their own food. He thought that the children can benefit from it, so he is sending some of his greenhouses to different schools around Reno. This year, Smith chose the High Desert Montessori School as the beneficiary of a single unit of modular greenhouse. He stated that he wanted the children to live healthy lives, and by growing their own food, they would develop an interest in organic farming and eating healthy foods like fruits and vegetables. It would also prevent the kids from eating junk foods and becoming obese.

The administration of the school thanked Josh Smith for his wonderful donation, and they are now thinking about revising their curriculum to add greenhouse keeping and farming as some of the extracurricular activities that the school children can enjoy. The High Desert Montessori School is located on the outskirts of Reno, and it has a moderate population of school children. Josh Smith stated that with the greenhouses he donated, he is hoping that the children from the district where the school is would start their interest in farming using a greenhouse. He encouraged the children to use their gardens as well to plant their food and watch it grow. Josh Smith is dreaming of seeing every school in the United States keeping their own greenhouse to become self-sufficient.

Sustainability and Purity Are The Foundation Of Waiakea Water

Hawaiians have a unique bond with nature, referring to themselves as children of the land. One of the most important cultures in Hawaii is to care for and respect the land. This bond goes back several thousand years because nature provides housing, clothing, food, canoes, tools, and musical instruments to the Hawaiians. They protect their resources and environment with sustainable actions they take very seriously.

Waiakea water engages in the respectful environmental actions of Hawaiians, sourcing their water from sustainably. The bottles are all 100 percent RPET, their shipping is low emission, and they are participants in programs to offset carbon and regional reforestation. This is why Waiākea’s premium bottled water was able to be certified as CarbonNeutral.

The environmental initiatives of Waiākea are concentrated on the use of one of the world’s most sustainable resources of fresh water. Waiākea starts out as rain and snowmelt on beautiful snow capped peaks. These peaks are located on the Big Island of Hawaii on the active Mauna Loa volcano.

Waiākea has a mission to sustainably provide Hawaiian volcanic water that is not only delicious but healthy as well. They strive to accomplish this by making as small an impact as they possibly can. At the same time they both promote and contribute to giving individuals in need all across the globe access to clean water.

Waiākea water is healthy because it has been filtered by using thousands of feet of volcanic rock. This porous rock naturally enriches the water with minerals and makes it rich in electrolytes. With a pH of just 8.8 this is one of the most Alkaline natural waters anywhere in the world.

Waiākea water is sustainable with a source recharge rate of 1.4 billions gallons every day. The bottles are 100 percent RPET, the carbon footprint is ninety percent smaller, and has been certified as CarbonNeutral. Waiākea water is incredibly proud to represent part of the solution regarding the global water crisis. Every single time the company sells a liter, 650 liters of clean water are donated disadvantaged communities located throughout rural Africa.
