Purified, filtered water!
How happy we are! With the support of our friends of Alente, an Aveda spa located in Ellensburg, WA, we could install a water filtration system in our kitchen. Each year, Aveda supports a project that promotes access to clean water, and Alente joins supporting another project. This year they chose us, and as soon as we receive their donation we began installing the water purification system (sediment filters, activated carbon, UV rays and chlorinator).
San Marcos La Laguna tap water is highly contaminated, and is causing a lot of health problems, especially during the rainy season, when the streams coming down from the mountain remove and dirty the water sources. Although we have high quality health and hygiene standards, always ensuring the health of children, having a water filtration system is vital for greater hygiene and food safety in our kitchen, the heart of the Escuela Caracol.
We want to deeply thank our friends from Alente and their community for their support and solidarity. Thank you very much! You have made us very happy! 🙂
