Learning the Bucket

Do you know how to “bucket”? From Louisiana to Texas, Nigeria to India communities suffering air pollution from refineries and industries have learned to “bucket;” that is, create an air sampling device and working with an independent lab to test the air where they work, live and play. Global Community Monitor (GCM) is at the forefront of this movement to provide knowledge and tools to communities…to take back their air.

Hilton Kelley, 2011 Goldman Prize awardee, learned that communities could participate in collecting environmental data after joining the “Bucket Brigade,” a group of activists that learned how to take air quality samples for themselves.  I discovered this video he produced to demonstrate the bucket.
