What we do
The environmental awareness-building programme targets primary school level children with the goal of facilitating an increase in the children’s participation in environmentally friendly activities and increasing awareness of the lifestyle/environment correlation.
How it's done
The Environmental Practices judged includes:
Tree Planting, Recycling & Energy Conservation, Gardening, Anti-Littering campaigns, Plastic Bottle Collection and also involves Artistic & Performing Arts components such as dance, poetry, short stories, dub poems, songs and posters.
How we started
In commemoration of Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of Independence, Lasco, Idea Factory Limited, Rootz Underground and celebrity friends officially launched a national environmental awareness programme consisting of a school tour and competition, dubbed the Lasco-Rootz Releaf Environmental Awareness Program (R.E.A.P), engaging schools across Jamaica.
