REDUCE:

liters a year
Using recycled paper can save trees as making a ton of paper uses up to 20 trees.
A leaky faucet can waste up to 10 liters of water a day!
Using solar energy system can reduce your bills by 40-60%.
40% of the energy is used up when products are turned off thus wasting that
energy entirely.
On recycling glass, we can save 35% of the energy required to create it from
scratch.
Producing recycled paper needs only 60% of the energy required to create it from
scratch and also saves 10000 liters of water.
Recycling plastics only use two third the energy required to create it from scratch.
Every piece of recycled steel saves 2,500 kg of iron core, 1400 kg of coal and 100
kg limestone.
Think about it! Imagine a future with clean air and water for the future generation.That
is possible only if you start working for it today. Bring about tiny changes in your life
and do your part. Even a small simple change in your lifestyle is enough.

2. WHAT ARE THE THREE RULES? Reduce. Purchase products that require less packaging or
to limit the waste you are producing. Reuse. Use a travel mug or reusable water bottle and avoid
single-use bags. Recycle. Paper, plastic, glass, magazines, electronics, and more can be
processed into new products while using fewer natural resources and less energy. This is the 3
Rs mantra.
3. In abandoned area in our school where we can place or dig a compost pit then we can put
our trashes there like leaves, vegetables and peal of fruits instead of burning it up. Save water by
turning off the faucet when you are using the comfort room. Save energy by turning off lights that
you are not using.
4. Importance of Reducing Waste in School In the environment: Reduce pollution and energy
consumption . In financial: Improve productivity of staff.
5. Plastic containers and reusable lunch bags are great ways to take your lunch to school
without creating waste. Use silverware and dishes instead of disposable plastic utensils and
plates. Use empty bottle as alternative vase for plants.
6. Importance of Reusing Waste Materials in School In the environment: Recycling is important
because if you recycle you can give another life to your rubbish. Many trees can saved and we will
have a better environment. In financial: The money that they can save from reusing waste
materials, they can use it to buy more books for the library.

Collect unused paper then create a folded vase. Use 1.5 litters of empty bottle then cut it and
shape it like a flower and add some paint to make it more prettier.
8. Importance of Recycling in School In the environment: It can lessen our garbage's that that can
cause diseases to the employees of the school and especially for the students. In financial: The

can go to drainage and when it rain it can stop to flow the water and can cause small kind of
flood, then student pick it up from the ground of the school canteen.

on the internet on how to do it, after that they create a pretty decor from a waste materials.
12. After they finish it, they will inspect if their work is correct and accurate from the plan or in the
instructions that they got from the internet.
13. Performing 3rs at school is a big participation to improve our environment. So, lets start
execute the REDUCE, REUSE and REYCLE!

REACH OUT PROGRAMS


The programs primary objective is to strengthen
the educational motivation and preparation of low-
income and educationally disadvantaged students
in grades 8 through 12, representing various
cultural backgrounds, who otherwise would be
unlikely to seek admission to a community college,
state university or independent post secondary
institution without special support and recruitment
efforts. Acceptance occurs prior to entering the
12th grade. The students are required to maintain
an academic grade point average (GPA) that will
lead to placement into a community college or
university. Furthermore, CROP active students are
expected to be involved in the scheduled field
trips.
