Trees for Survival Trust

The Trust encourages other community groups to sponsor and support schools to grow trees and plant them on eroded land. The Trust has developed a unit about preventing soil erosion called 'Saving our Soils'.

Be active in environmental education! Develop a growing unit in your area and create a sustainable environment for the future. Check out the Trees for Survival website.

Reduce - reuse - recycle

Become more environmentally friendly by installing the environmental '3 Rs' in your school. There are simple things you can do to help by using the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle). Find out more about how you can help to reduce waste.
