More on GGP
We live in the most conscious age there has ever been. The science of economics rules the world sowhat would be the cost of improving the environment? The cost is only the effort of starting to beconservative about the environment we live in. It will only cost time and a need to live in a healthyenvironment. The trend is going green and the attitudes behind it are conserving what nature has given.
Schools not only have a large amount of people in them, they have a large amount of peoplethat need to be exposed to a healthy environment. Pupils in schools spend 8-to-10 hours a day atschools, some doing extra murals. These environments could influence the health of the youth eithernegatively or positively. If it gets to a point of negative influence we need to intervene.
