“O2 for You” Tour Hits the Windy City

Last week we spent two glorious days in Chicago with Costa Farms! Together with Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program, we gave out hundreds of peace lilies, donated by Costa Farms, to folks throughout Chicago.

Our 2-day event kicked-off at beautiful Garfield Park Conservatory where representatives from Costa, Roots & Shoots, and various Chicago non-profits spoke about the benefits of indoor houseplants and the “O2 for You” public service campaign.
Immediately following, we set out for the East Garfield Park community were we gave residents a gift of fresh air – a peace lily.

The next day, we visited the Kenwood Healthcare Center where we teamed up with Carnegie Elementary School children from the GOT-YA program. These wonderful children handed out Peace Lilies to residents – who were grateful for this special treat.

Our last stop was the University of Illinois Medical Center. Here we presented peace lilies to new moms, pediatric patients and the wonderful nurses and staff, who were all delighted to receive our gift of fresh air. Check out Costa’s “O2 for You” campaign at www.o2foryou.org.
