My Birthday

Guess what?

Well, you can probably tell by the title but it is my birthday on the 23rd June NZ time. I'm really excited as it will be in 5 days. Although the bad thing is I won't get to spend it with my Dad! Oh well, that can't really be helped and so I'll just have to put up with it.

The Earthrace boat

The Eathrace is a enviromentally friendly boat that went around the word in 60 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes. The Earthrace is eco-friendly and here are the eco-features:

  • Earthrace uses only sustainable biodiesel

  • Some of the Earthrace is made from hemp

  • the Earthrace has a non-toxic anti-foul
  • Mattresses are made from vegetable and canola oils
  • Water is pumped to remove any chemicals
  • Ice-cream containers were used in the construction of the Earthrace
  • The crew fed on only organic and local food sources
  • The waste from the crew was all recycled
  • The crew's clothing were made from hemp and bamboo

I went and saw the Earthrace with my mum and brother and we got to go inside and it was absolutely amazing.

Brazil covers nearly half of South America and is the continent's largest nation. It extends 4,772 km north-south and 4,331 east-west. Brazil also surrounds every nation on the continent except Chile and Ecuador.
