ECO-SMART

DISASTER RELIEF
SOLUTIONS

The mission of Eco Kit Puerto Rico is to provide an itemized guide relief help list for organizations, communities, families and individuals.
This list aims to mitigate the ecological hazards of the many relief donations that will end up as garbage by providing alternative solutions and empowering communities alike.

ECO-KIT ITEMS

Our items include things like: solar battery banks for recharging electric devices, manually chargeable radios, compact gas stoves, collapsable coolers, solar lamps, manually chargeable flash lights and tools for rescue and debris, among other things. For example, we’ve focused on eco friendly and long duration artifacts taking into account that many battery operated artifacts will end up as garbage or water bottles cease their utility immediately, not to mention the ecological hazard they represent once they are discarded.

WHO IS THE ECO-KIT FOR

Anyone is welcome to use our itemized list. You are welcome to order items for you or your loved ones, addressed to yourself.

If you would like to donate items to help organizations, please refer to the section below: “How can you Help”
