Comments on: Grow a Green School http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/11/grow-a-green-school/ The EPA Blog Tue, 07 Jul 2015 02:30:52 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Simon http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/11/grow-a-green-school/#comment-20733 Mon, 22 Nov 2010 22:09:55 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=5051#comment-20733 I think taking the “green” movement to schools is innovative and well thought out. There are two main reasons that I think it is a initiative worth taking. The first reason is simply because of all the recycling that schools have to offer. School lunches are not going away anytime soon and with all this trash that is amounting daily there is no reason it should not be recycled. The other reason that this is a great idea is it is informing students about this issue at an early age. No time will be taken out of math, science, or english – Just having recycling bins in the classroom will be giving them a understanding of “going green.” Water bottles made of plastic are not leaving schools anytime soon. Teachers are not going to stop printing documents for there class to read anytime soon. These are opportunities to not only help out and recycle but also teach youth at a young age why it is important to care about limiting waste around the world.

If we want people to start adhering to environmentally friendly polices and practices, we need to start teaching children at a young age. Children who are taught that we need to minimize our impact on the environment will be more likely to sustain these practices into adulthood. If we can start incorporating information about the environment into the curriculum, kids will better understand the importance of doing all we can to protect it. I think that schools are a great place to put the green practices we always hear about into action. I think science classes should include a unit on sustaining the environment and green living. The youth in our country need to take the lead on protecting the environment because they are the ones who will be most effected. We need to start setting an example for kids by incorporating these practices into schools across the country.

Go green policy is admirable at any stage but promoting it at the school level is the best. If people can be educated about the importance of ‘going green’ from school level, they will be able to better under their responsibilities. biodegradable urns

Alternative transportation is a step we can take to help our environment as well as health as a whole country. We have determined what our problems are and will continue to be unless we stand up and change. Many great people regardless of their lifestyles are opening their eyes to this. I myself ride around on electric bikes to do my fair share of preservation.
