Learning For A Sustainable Future (LSF) – It started in 1991 by a group of students, teachers, local business, government and community organizations. One of their initiatives is a program called Ecoleague. It is a youth-empowerment program. It aims to raise of generation of children who will help to save the planet by engaging in community and school-based environmental sustainability action programs.

She has many programs and one stood out for me called: Roots and Shoots which engages more than 10,000 young Canadians who have completed 2,500 projects for people, animals and the environment in their communities.

For schools: Set up Green Programs within their schools. The idea is to REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE. First you will need to set up a Green Team and this starts with an agreement between the parents, teachers and children.

  • Need an Eco Team
  • A Waste Audit – see what is being thrown out. All paper can be recycled
  • Put on display what they are throwing out in clear plastic bags so they can see the waste they are creating
  • Daily quiz led by students over the PA system in the morning
  • Litterless lunches. – use recyclable utensils and containers for food. – EcoLogo is North America’s most widely recognized and respected certification of environmental leadership. By setting standards and certifying products in more than 120 categories, EcoLogo helps you identify, trust, buy, and sell environmentally preferable (“green”) goods and services.
