San Pedro Kids for Recycling

School children took to the streets once again, this time for another cause. In an effort to protect the environment several schools on the Island have joined together to encourage their communities to make reusing and recycling a part of San Pedro’s education system.

Today, the marched through the streets of town with posters and placards on hand sending the message for residents to start being more conscience about the environtment and start making steps to recycle.

The goal is to jump-start reusing and recycling on Ambergris Caye by having people talk to the kids and explain why it is important. In the new school year the plan is to get kids making arts and crafts from clean and ready to use items that people would otherwise be throwing in the trash.
