The Parent Council at 3e International School has taken recycling to the next level by fusing art, environmentalism, and charity into their latest project. The school will collect out-of-use plastic access cards, and the students will paint trees using the cards as a canvas. Families can purchase the cards, which will be hung on trees for decoration. In conjunction with the NGO Future Forest, the council will donate proceeds from the cards to purchase trees that will be planted in Inner Mongolia.
Future Forest, which was founded in 2001 by former Korean Ambassador to China Kwon Byong Hyon, promote sustainability as a means of saving the earth and its environment. It’s global campaign Save the Earth aims to reduce deforestation and desertification in Inner Mongolia by planting more trees. For more information on the cards, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
