Values and Beliefs

  • Environmental Stewardship – we act as caretakers of the earth; with great power comes great responsibility
  • Climate Justice – the lower socio-economic areas, usually communities of color, are hit the hardest with environmental policy / zoning (e.g., industry & truck exhaust, landfills, water run-off)
  • We are Concerned: Landfills are growing bigger and bigger, plastics are filling the oceans; the planet is getting warmer, the weather is unpredictable
  • We can help Save the Planet: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose; Compost, Harvest Rainwater, Reduce Energy Consumption, Grow Your Own Food, Eat more plants (and presumably less non-plants)


  • Help clean up & beautify neighborhood, e.g. trash on way to school, tree beds
  • Instill sustainable values within the school’s systems and bodies. Put more focus on green systems, have principles built into curriculum.
