Our student council visited New York Hall of Science on April 17th to learn how we can make our environment more sustainable. We had a blast and at the same time, we learned that we can do so by - 
  • Making buildings eco-friendly and efficient
  • Reducing waste and recycling
  • Promoting everyday practices that benefit the environment (pick up trash in the community)
  • Reducing water use and increasing water efficiency by placing bins to collect water
  • Planting trees and gardening
