Create a Recycling Center

Recycling is an easy first step in positively influencing the environment. Recycling helps reduce the consumption of natural resources and energy. It also prevents pollution when a recycled material, rather than a raw material, is used to make a new product.

A collaborative school effort to establish a recycling program can get students educated and involved in ways to protect the environment. Students can work together by organizing and executing the project on a regular basis.
