The Problem

Our wish is to help people, especially kids, become aware of the importance of recycling for their planet and spread the message to their families and continue it as they grow.

Our Plan

Our project will raise awareness in around our school to the importance of recycling. We have created recycling bins and collected plastic bottles in and around school to recycle. Then we took some bottles to recycling centers and used money to purchase planting materials to help make the neighborhood more natural and beautiful. We also used some bottles to create plant pots and taught younger students about recycling and planting to improve their environment. We even made fliers and posters for our school and community with facts and information that we learned about recycling and its importance.
