No more child malnutrition and hunger (Willem VAN COTTHEM)

If we offer a bottle tower to grow some vegetables at home to all the children of this world, they will enjoy building more towers for their family.


If we ban child malnutrition in our countries by teaching them container gardening at school, recycling all discarded containers in school gardens, there will be sufficient food for decent daily meals and a cleaner environment.


And soon there will be fresh food galore everywhere.

If we convince all young mothers to plant only one fruit tree for their new baby and if we plant a fruit tree for every dear family member passing away, we will soon have orchards full of fruits, protecting us against global warming and climate change.


If we pass this message to the leaders and publish all our photos to show them our green container gardens, it will be a giant convincing step towards a global food revolution.


And soon there will be less hunger.
