CLEAN FOR GREEN
The main idea of the project is to raise awareness and good practices aligning with 3R (Reduce – Reuse – Recycle) to multilevel programs via bottom up approach, towards building a sustainable community.
Essentially, in this project, children will be the focal point to promote environmental oriented citizenship.
“CLEAN FOR GREEN” project’s purpose is to encourage Reuse, Reduce and Recycle practice with a bottom-up approach towards building a sustainable community.
The project visions sustainable community has Reuse, Reduce and Recycle practice in place when there is a growing dependence on color-coded bins in public places and on public spaces, a growing habit of using/taking as much as needed, growing dependence on reusable bags and reduced amount of leftover food. Currently, at the school, amount of leftover food is monitored, during and after lunch time.
To create a complete circle of learning for kids we aim to bridging the gap of waste management practice at school and home while enlightening students about the advantages of waste management.
