Every dollar you contribute makes a difference.
Here are a few examples:
- $25 a month buys a simple tool which reduces Mozambican gold miners' exposure to toxic mercury vapor.
- $50 a month supports the removal of 1.5 acres/65,350 square feet of radioactively contaminated soil in Russia - resulting in lower rates of exposure to cesium, a carcinogen which also causes severe birth defects.
- $100 a month supports the clean up of hexavalent chromium from groundwater in Kanpur, India and helps provide clean drinking water for 30,000 people.
Your contribution to the Blacksmith Institute will allow us to expand our current pollution remediation programs in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Russia and start up new initiatives in contaminated and toxic sites throughout the developing world. Even modest contributions directly impact human health and the environment and allow us to raise the profile of pollution as a serious and deadly threat worldwide.
