2020 Teens Dream- Clean Schools for a Clean Planet
Students create a lot of waste throughout the day, and most of us don’t even think twice about where it goes once it’s out of our hands. It’s up to us to be more mindful of our waste. Our team wishes to combat this problem by implementing a reliable and optimized recycling system in our local school system. We will make use of permanent posters and informative videos to educate students and teachers on effective recycling. Specialized and specifically labeled recycling bins will be placed around the school in bottleneck areas to decrease the amount of recycling that ends up in landfills and in our environment. By focusing on recycling in our schools, we are working towards the United Nations’ Sustainability Goal 12 on a local level. We wish to promote effective consumption and recycling of plastics, which will lead to fewer resources being used and a cleaner environment.
