Constantine's Nature Conservation

Cleaning up Constantine High School

The Problem

  • not enough paper recycling boxes
  • no plastic bottle recycling
  • no recycling for aluminum cans
  • trash outside of school
  • litter around the town

  • Plastic drinking bottles: hundreds of years; consist of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is made from petroleum, which won't break down

  • 133 plastic bottles sold in two days in cafeteria

  • Aluminum cans: 80 to 100 years

  • The amount of wood & paper thrown away per year could heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years

To solve the problem of nature conservation, we will organize events & trash disposal opportunities.
