Every Action Has A Reaction


The best way to increase environmental awareness in Alexandria is to implement the idea that helping the environment is good at a very young age. Teaching students early on in education is key. Taking children in 1st or 2nd grade on field trips. Not to museums and such, but to parks where they can see nature first hand. Schools are not the only organization that can partake in this, but private organizations as well, in addition to family outings. Parents should be encouraged, with other groups like church youth groups, community sports leagues, and community block events, to take the young children out to a park and plant trees, rake leaves, or garden. This will create a generation that is environmentally sound and will grow up aware that green aspects of our lives are aspects worth protecting.
