My Project

This initiative recycling program will make a difference in their learning by providing tangible tools and resources to support establishing and maintaining a sustainable recycling program at our school.

With these items, students will have hands-on experience implementing environmental initiatives, fostering a deeper understanding of sustainability principles and practices.

Our goals for this project include creating a culture of environmental stewardship, reducing waste, and promoting responsible consumption habits among students and staff. What makes our students unique is their enthusiasm and dedication to positively impacting their community and the environment, as evidenced by their commitment to initiating this recycling program despite their challenges.
