A Zesty Twist to Lemonade Alley’s Recipe
In alignment with Earth Day, this year’s Lemonade Alley competition added an eco-twist to its recipe! Keiki were challenged to reach triple bottom line impacts – teams were judged by how many people they served, funds they raised, and quantity of Co2 they were able to reduce.
In order to promote higher impact in Co2 reduction, Lemonade Alley added 3 new eco-friendly projects alongside the original lemonade stand. Kids had the opportunity to create jewelry or toys out of repurposed material in a project called Upcycle Alley; invent a fun arcade game made entirely out of cardboard, then manage it during the event in our Cardboard Carnival project; or they could have started their own tree planting business in the Billion Trees of Aloha project.
Amongst all 4 projects, Lemonade Stand still dominated the playing field – kids were challenged to create their stand entirely out of cardboard!
Another Round of Sustainable Lemonade Served
Keiki across Oahu gathered in competitive spirit to make Pearl Ridge Center Downtown a marketplace of innovative and fun products. With great fulfillment, the teams this year were able to convert their products into results!All in all, the keiki raised nearly $6000 in funds for charities and schools; offset half a ton of Co2 ; and impacted over 5000 people in the process! AMAZING!
