Strategies to promote sustainable environment and to reduce ecosystem destruction

One program that our school is implementing is switching from fluorescent light bulbs to LED bulbs as LED bulbs generally use less electricity then the fluorescent ones. Another program is that our school is replacing their air con with more sufficient and eco friendly ones, although this is a big investment so research carefully and i think this should be a choice of whenever other school should do this. Furthermore, the officers in our school monitors the consumption of supplies in our school to adjust any school operation that is taking too much materials. Our school also converts left over food from the canteen into fertilizer which will help the plants to grow from the additional nutrients from the plants. Finally we have recycling which we send recyclable materials to the nearby recycling factory. Anther interesting fact is that many of our school's play props is made from recycling materials, thus lessening the cost of having to buy material to make more props.

Our schools are very similar in that we both have LED bulbs and both focus on recycling. I think that both of these help promote good sustainability and can help benefit the environment because both conserve whether it's energy or resources.

You are pretty lucky that you can make changes to your air conditioning. FCDS's air conditioning system never turns off, and it will be nearly impossible to change how the system operates. FCDS is also trying to gain funds for the replacement of incandescent bulbs with the more efficient LED bulbs.

Our school also has switched to lightbulbs that consume less energy. Our school is also similar in the way that we recycle paper and other material. It is interesting that your school has people monitor the use of materials. It is also interesting that your play supplies are made of recycled material.
