Sustainable Project Grade XII Bilingual

 

Looking at our environment, I realize that there are so many things that we can do to change the world. So many things have changed in the past 10 years. One of them being peoples behavior and concern for our environment. As teachers we try to inspire our students to become future leaders.

Every semester teachers organise a project based on their subject which will be part of the process of student learning. This semester I will be giving our students a project that will continue to help them develop as leaders long after they have left our school. The project will be environmental sustainability. The first time I presented my idea about saving our environment, to a few of my students they said it would not be possible to change all the students habits, and convince them to help this project succeed. For me, it’s a challenge to try and make what might be impossible become possible.

The students will be given a brief overview about the current situation in our environment.
They will then be asked to research and find information about the dangerous effects plastic and styrofoam have on our environment.
Before they present their projects, they will need to report online for one week about the use of plastic or styrofoam in there daily life.
They will also be given the chance to walk around the school and assess for themselves, what can be done to help our environment.
Each group of students will have the opportunity to share their ideas, about what changes can be made.
Please remember, this not a project for the school but for the students. This is a student project, hence it will be there responsibility to come up with ideas about how they can improve the surrounding environment at there school.

Ideas such as bringing food in tupperware instead of plastic bags will help decrease our trash at school.

Inviting all students to listen to our project which will be divided into two classes. This will include activities, a 30 minute presentation, games, and question/ discussion.

FACTS:
We throw about 200-250 styrofoam in the trash at Budi Luhur.
Tangerang produces around 800 ton of trash per day.
Plastic and styrofoam are very dangerous to our health and can cause cancer as well as other illnesses.

Most people don’t feel guilty when they throw plastic or styrofoam in the trash even though these could kill many animals in the sea.
Hopefully this sustainable project will become part of our future daily life and change our point of view about plastic and styrofoam.

Our target for this project is to decrease the trash in our school by 50% this month and hopefully 95% after 3 months.

In the end we need all the support we can get from anyone and everyone to keep our environment clean and sustain our planet.

Project kelas XII yang menggandeng Tupperware, karena memiliki visi yang sama yaitu mengurangi sampah plastik dan styrofoam. Tupperware membawa personel nya membagikan botol minum secara gratis kepada 5 anak yang melakukan presentasi tentang lingkungan hidup ini. Mereka di harapkan menjadi duta lingkungan yang memberi contoh untuk membawa bekal dan botol minum dari rumah.

Terima kasih kepada Tupperware yang sudah mendukung project kami. Salam Budi Luhur

Another FACT that I found:

Berbagai fakta berikut mungkin akan membuka cakrawala kesadaran kita betapa pentingnya berhemat energy termasuk penggunaan plastic demi kelangsungan hidup generasi dan bumi kita tercinta.

Fakta Sampah Plastik 1: Tahukah anda??, untuk membuat botol-botol plastic yang kita pakai setiap hari diperlukan kurang lebih 175 juta Barel minyak bumi untuk memproduksinya botol plastik dalam setahun. Nyatanya biaya produksi tersebut setara untuk konsumsi 1 juta mobil.

Fakta Sampah Plastik 2: Dan tahukah anda menurut penelitian diperlukan waktu 1 milenium atau 1000 tahun untuk mengurai sampah plastik di tanah, so pastinya dengan tahu fakta tersebut perlu berfikir ulang untuk membuang sampah plastik sembarangan di tanah.

Fakta Sampah Plastik 3: Fakta selanjutnya yang perlu diketahui kalau Indonesia memproduksi kurang lebih 300 juta ton yang berpotensi mencemari lingkungan. Dan fakta lainnya bahwa plastik mengandung bahan kimia berbahaya yang dapat mengganggu kesehatan bahkan kematian jika termakan oleh manusia maupun hewan.

Fakta Sampah Plastik 4: Biasanya kita untuk memusnahkan sampah plastic dengan cara dibakar, namun tahukah bahwa pembakaran yang tidak sempurna dari plastic dan menghasilkan zat kimia berbahaya yang disebut dioksin yang memicu kanker dan gangguan syaraf. Selain itu di udara zat plastic yang dibakar juga menghasilkan zat karsinogen diudara dan sangat berbahaya ketika terhirup.
