    Green Projects for Teens

    In today’s ever growing eco-conscious world, going green is not just for the grown ups anymore. There are an infinite number of ways to teach the younger generation the benefits of going green. Green initiatives and projects are growing in popularity for teens all over the world who want to make a difference. Here we are going to take a look at some ways teens are getting green and making the world a better place to be.

    The Teens Turning Green project is a national teen collective whose goal is to educate other teens on the value of going green. Their campaign focuses on chemical exposures in schools and communities that harm our health. For more information visit their website at www.teensturninggreen.org.

    Do Something is a teen and tween centered national organization that spotlights the angst generation doing good things. By signing up with the Do Something organization, teens can become active in promoting green lifestyles and get support for their own eco-ideas. Some current green projects that teens have gotten involved in are building an eco-house and earning money for their schools by working to make them green.

    Teens for Planet Earth is another teen green action group that aims to educate and help teenagers become the change they want to see in the world. As a global action group, they fund green projects created by teens to help clean up our environment. For more information visit their website at www.teens4planetearth.com.

    SEAC is the Student Environmental Action Coalition and is made up of high school through college aged students worldwide. One of their current projects is called Mountain Justice. The Mountain Justice campaign is aimed at stopping the mountain top mining projects in an effort to save local mountain eco-systems and the energy drain that mining mountain tops creates.
