We can reduce damage to the planet by being careful not to waste things needlessly.


Reduce garbage

Garbage everywhere spoils our natural environment! The less trash we produce, the better.


Consider the environment

The shrinking animal population is a direct result of environment problems. More and more, we must consider how our actions affect the environment.


Everyone's Activity Report

Little by little we begin to understand what we can do to protect our earth, our animals, and nature. Here we present reports about the many activities that are held in schools all over Japan. Let's take a brief look at what other partners we have and what activities they are taking part in.
