ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION PROGRAM FOR SCHOOLS
The Environmental Action
Program for Schools (EAPS) is a free
program for schools everywhere! The goal of the program is to
help students incorporate environmental ideals into their everyday life.
It is designed to help school children of all ages (K –12)
become more aware of the environment through easily accomplished actions
and activities that take place at school. Participation in this program
can help children change the world in which they live for the better,
now and for a lifetime. If school children have first hand experience
with recycling when they are young, they are more likely to embrace the
ideals of recycling when they are grown.
The Environmental Action
Program for Schools (EAPS) has eight action areas: Recycle, School
Composting, Become a Collection Site, Letter Campaign, Less Toxic, Waste
Prevention, Buy Recycled, and Environmental Curriculum (shown in color
around this page) from which to choose. Activities falling within four
of these action areas must be completed to become certified. The
activities are geared towards schools and can be easily accomplished.
Upon completing activities in four of the eight action areas,
schools earn the prestigious title of becoming an ENVIRONMENTAL
