Once again, I find myself making a heartfelt plea to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to keep the funding for Plastikeep alive. Plastikeep has expanded over the years and has made a significant contribution to developing a culture of recycling in many schools, neighbourhoods and communities. Unfortunately, this culture of recycling has never been a priority for any government in power.
As a teacher of Environmental Science and Chair of the Environmental Club at my school, I am happy to report the increasing levels of awareness on the need for recycling and care for the environment by our young generation. Teachers from many schools throughout the country, both in urban and rural communities, have worked towards educating young minds and developing an attitude of care towards the environment.
