1st Sustainable Salsa Summer Party for Sri Lanka!

There is only one long term solution to Climate Change: we, who consume more than our equal share of the world's non-renewable resources, must reduce our consumption and production patterns and have simpler, healthier and more sustainable lifestyles. We believe that by creating sustainable livelihoods for the poor, it reduces poverty and improves living conditions in the developing world.

We want to create an environment where local people can actively participate in an array of climate change mitigation and adaptation projects.

These include carbon off-setting through planting rubber trees and other relevant activities, complimented by renewable energy technologies to support organic agriculture, fisheries, water harvesting and forestry on a sustainable level.

Our solution is simple: We plant trees. There are vast unused areas of land in many developing countries, which is ideally suitable for tree planting to mitigate climate gases, while providing increased income to the poorest section of the population.

Experts have concluded that in particular environments, the most effective plants in mitigating green house gases are rubber trees. They will provide sustainable livelihood to thousands of people, as well as effective environmental improvement.

By providing 50 pence a day to the project, you will in 300 days (or faster if you pay more) cover the cost of planting 10 rubber trees with follow up activities to secure maturity of the trees. This mitigation of 10 ton C02E of green house gases, equivalent to one year's carbon footprint of an average American or European citizen.

So Become Carbon Neutral and participate in the Carbon Free Organic Rubber Revolution!

Come join us at our first Sustainable Summer Salsa Party this year by reducing your carbon footprints by taking small footsteps on the dance floor.

There will be a Salsa Class with Pili from the dance company Latin Fusion at 8.00pm for you that will be followed by live performances to raise the athmosphere.

The party be be on Thursday July 10th, 2008 from 7.30pm - 1.30am at The Cuban, Stables Market, 23 Chalk Farm Road, NW1 8AH.

Tickets are £15 each which the cost of planting and maintaining a rubber tree in a developing country for 35 years.

You can pay £15 cash at the door on the night of the party!

Renewable natural resources are those that, with proper care can be maintained or even increase. The main renewable resources are plants and animals. In turn the plants and animals depend for their livelihood on other renewable resources are the water and soil. Although water is abundant, it is not permanent resource since it is easily contaminated. Once contaminated it is very difficult to restore water purity
