On December 8th 2009, their 24th Foundation Day Anniversary, Little Flower Children’s Home Foundation, emerging from its simple waste management efforts, launched “Earth Savers’ Day” Program. On this occasion, all student activities revolved around the school’s environmental commitment namely: “Our World, Our Responsibility” printed at the back of their t-shirts. Story-telling and art activities related to the event occupied the preparatory and primary grade school students, while the intermediate graders conducted a cleanliness and information drive on solid waste management in the neighborhood, capped by the tree planting activity near Balili River.
On the launching of Earth Savers’ Day at Little Flower Children’s Home Foundation, and every Monday of the week thereafter, the school community observes a no plastic bag and wrapper, no Styrofoam and no aluminum foil day. Only the green, biodegradable trash bin gets filled up on this day. The school canteen for its part, prepares native delicacies like ‘kankanin’ or rice cakes, ‘palitaw’, ‘suman’, all wrapped in banana leaves, banana cue and fruits served with fruit juices. A clean and healthy habit for our growing children.
Georgina D. Alipio, the School Principal, shared that since year 2000, the school has made the traditional environmental slogans 3 R’s & C — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost — a part of the environmental program of the school. A practice which did not go unnoticed especially by the municipal officials of La Trinidad.
