Project Jatropha

Eco Company goes halfway around the world to South India. There two Pleasanton, California, teens have started a program to replace harmful tobacco farming with cultivation of the sustainable Jatropha plant to help the poverty stricken area and reduce deforestation at the same time. The Jatropha plant fruit produces oil that can be used to make biofuel. It is an amazing story about Adarsha Shivakumar and his sister Apoorva Rangan gaining the trust of the Indian farmers, and the beginning of a successful transformation.
