Jerry-Can Christmas Tree at Chelsea Market

by

A tree made out of 40-gallon plastic jugs is the centerpiece of Chelsea Market’s Christmas display.

One-eighth of people in the world drink water that makes them sick. Indeed, clean water is probably the planet’s number one health priority; without it, chronic illness is inevitable. This tree — made of the cans many in the third world use to carry water from unclean reservoirs, wells, and other sources — symbolizes the pressing need for clean water, and our ability during the holiday season to remedy that need by contributing at charitywater.org.
