You cannot currently send a star to Ben because you have done so within the last week.

I fear if we keep going the way we're going it won't be long until everyone on the planet needs one of these to drink water: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXepkIWPhFQ
Too much pollution, irresponsible clearing leading to desertification, acid raid - the list just keeps going on

I used to plant trees, but for the last year or so all my butterfly rewards go to fresh water.

safe water is a human right and why models that require polluters to bear the costs of not polluting streams are needed in all parts of the world
