Environmental education: Start them young

Habits are formed from young. Thus it is important to introduce environmental education and practices to children when they are still young. This is exactly what Fairview International School in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur is doing.

Fairview International School has introduced a year long campaign to encourage recycling among its students. Students are taught to separate recyclable items and group them into paper, plastic, tin and glass and deposit them into separate bins provided by Alam Flora placed at 12 locations in the school compound. Money from the sale of the recyclable items at the end of the campaign will be channeled to a charity home selected by the school.

Alam Flora also gave talk on the importance of recycling and the uses of recycled materials.

Hi Ross,

The only Spanish I know is Komo es tas (or something like that), and trying to get to your site rosalbathomas@gmail.com. Unfortunately, it got the error message:
Error!
Could not locate remote server.

But anyway, how can we work together?
