Young Entrepreneur Series – Environmental Action Club

February 22, 2012

Kristiana Henderson was 14 years old when Environmental Action Club was founded in 2004. Since then she has been encouraging students to get involved in caring for the environment through letter writing campaigns on various environmental issues, including global warming and wetland destruction. She has also offered many energy-saving ideas.

The club has organized trash pick-ups, educated the public on how to recycle Christmas trees, and has planted 600 trees in a natural resource area. Leading this group has been very positive for Kristiana, who has honed her political and leadership skills.

It has given her hope that she and her peers will be able to accomplish a lot to protect the world they live in. Being a positive force in the Earth’s future, says Kristiana, is “fascinating and cool. The environment is not only completely worth protecting, it’s completely relevant to our lives.”

You too can hone those same skills. Visit www.smckids.com/learnandearn for some sharp tips from Warren Buffett.
