All the ways we can help the planet

“My poster shows a garbage can which shows to put your garbage in the garbage, your recycling in the recycling, and your compost in the green bin. The oil can and the girl shows if you spill oil, or see that someone has spilt oil, help clean it up. The garden means plant a garden so it refreshens the air and helps stop climate change. The boy and the skate board and the truck means that you should always pick a bike, skateboard, scooter, or walking if you can, because if you drive you can waste oil and the smoke defreshenates the air. These are ways to help the planet!!!.” – Liberty H.

Earth poster with a mermaid tangled in netting and Save The Earth written around the globe

“In my artwork, you can see a mermaid who represents the ocean and a hand that represents the younger generation. The hand is reaching out towards the mermaid trapped in the nets and pollution, trying to free her. This shows that climate actions can be led by and supported by younger people too. We care about our planet as well and we want to help save it.” – Shanelle F.
