Do you see an important connection with the role you play in our community and our future on this planet? Would you like others in our community to know more about your efforts?
“Yes! Preserving the environment requires starting small. Every contribution we make towards using less and recycling more helps our planet. Currently we are working on getting teachers and students to turn off computers at the end of the day -- this would save an estimated $15,000 a year -- and creating a green roof for Maine South. Stevenson High School has already started one and we hope to convince our school to go the same route. So far we have already made a recycling video and added three basket-net styled recycling bins to the cafeteria. Saving our planet cannot be done by just a few people. It requires an ongoing, global effort, but just a single community dedicating themselves a little bit each day will go farther than any of us can imagine. All it takes is being conscientious: reducing, reusing, recycling and picking up just one piece of garbage a day. Anyone can join the effort: high school students can join Environmental Club and adults can attend monthly Go Green Park Ridge meetings. We cannot delay helping our planet anymore; climate change is already upon us. The time is now!”
