Spreading awareness to keep our Earth’s environment healthy and clean have always been a priority of mine; which leads to why I chose my inquiry question.
Ever since realizing how detrimental plastics are to our environment, I was determined to help eliminate the most plastics I could. I started taking interest in school clubs like the Green Team and Nature Club, which taught me so many ways how people could better our environmental conditions. However, since joining those clubs, I had myself questioning for a long time; “how come school doesn’t have a required course of how we can better our environment?” After all, materials like plastics have threatened both humans’ and animals’ health’s on a global scale since the 1960s. This sudden pop-up question in my head gave me the idea to my inquiry project question; “How can education help reduce plastic consumption?” I hope in my future blogs that I can cover all the main reasons of how education can help reduce plastic consumption, why it’s important to do so, and most importantly; how it will influence our earth’s environment in the future.
