Environment clubs are often at the heart of a school’s sustainable activities and help achieve meaningful change within school communities. The Environmental club has set many goals to be accomplished. One major task is the job of persuading students to join the club and participate in all the fundraising events. This is to make the teenagers to believe that they can help to protect and save the environment. Since our school campus is pretty big, the club is able to plant flowers and trees around the grounds and even maintain a little garden. The members of the club could then take turns maintaining the garden. Everybody loves art. So, why not put our skills to work by creating posters and signs to hang up around the school encouraging students to “Renew, Reuse and Recycle”.
