Fuerza Chile! United for clean water

January 25, 2013 | Words By:

Join the next phase of the Fuerza Chile! Campaign with Save The Waves Coalition to help them fight for clean water along the amazing central coast of Chile.


This coastal region suffers from the harmful byproducts from pulp mill manufacturing, which are directly dumped into the ocean. Unfortunately, scientific evidence that measures the extent to which this toxic industrial waste is impacting local habitat, wildlife, and people in this region of Chile is missing. This crucial data will help us to take a strong stand against polluters. Your contribution will fund vital water quality testing that will analyze water collected from the Itata River and in the ocean nearby the pulp mill’s outfall pipe. The results from this testing will give us independent, scientifically valid evidence showing how pulp mill production impacts the coastal and marine environment.
