What you can do

How can you start or improve an environmental program at your school? Becoming the PTA Environmental Chairperson would give you the support of an organized group with other volunteers and a budget. However, if you don't want the commitment of being a PTA chairperson, there are many easy activities that can be organized by just one volunteer parent. Some of them can even be done easily all year long on a regular basis. Here are a few examples:
