One thing we know is for sure — kids develop their habits early on and carry them into adulthood. In order to create a cleaner, more beautiful parish, it starts with educating our kids on the repercussions of littering and teaching them to be responsible for their actions.
As we said before, one of the most important aspects of litter prevention is educating children on the negative consequences of throwing trash where it doesn't belong.
Research has shown that most children have learned their basic habits and practices by the end of their 4th grade year in elementary school.
With this in mind, we are working with CPSB and other private schools and educational institutions in the region to develop litter awareness through special projects and school visits.
