why school recycling don t take it from us just ask the students
Why School Recycling?Don’t take it from us, just ask the students!

“What I learned about recycling is that it’s something very helpful to our environment. This whole project has changed the way I look at the planet. I realized that this is our only home and we have to take care of it.”

- Heidy Benitez, Student The Academy of Urban Planning, Brooklyn

“My peers and I started an environmental

group in our school. We go on educational

trips learning about the problems with our

environment and how to fix them. I feel that

educating people about what is going on

will make them want to change.”
