Going green

Tips are only as good as they are for only yourself. The world can change but this is a global effort. Everyone needs to pitch in. You have to spread the word. You can do this by talking to county legislatures and giving them suggestions.. talk to your beautification comitee and tell them how you can use less enrgy in the town. i did and now they Are changing all the street lamps to florescents and using only one light bulb instead of three. You can do it but we all need help.

Project Description
We are part of a robotics team. For the project we had to solve a problem. Our problem was how do we tell others about this problem. We found several solutions. They were :
We contacted the president, two of our village trustees, 5 county legislatures, the Bronx Zoo, The Australian Wildlife Hospital, a girl scout who was able to go and discover marine biology. an ecologist(he won the big green help award on the Nickeloedeon Awards, and and The World Wildlife Federation. Along with that we started a recycling program in our communities and raised over 20 dollars which was used to adopt a polar bear and a sea turtle. We also took part in a Save the Trees petition which says that you should replace evry tree you cut down. In future we are planning to plant flowers and trees in our schools and by our local railroads and start clubs in our schools that will accomplish projects bassed on going green and stopping global warming.
