Starting a Planet Protectors Club
US Environmental Protection Agency
If your mission is to teach children how to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste and create the next generation of Planet Protectors, perhaps leading a Planet Protectors Club is part of your future challenges. You don't have to be an expert in waste reduction and recycling to lead a a Planet Protectors Club. You don't even have to be a teacher. You do have to have the desire to motivate and educate children in grades K-6 while having fun in the process. Planet Protectors Clubs encourage children to think about these environmental topics: (1) Resource conservation; (2) Global climate change; (3) Source reduction; (4) Reuse; (5) Recycling; (6) Composting; (7) Recycled products; and (8) Waste disposal. This paper outlines steps on starting a Planet Protectors Club and provides a list of resources.
