Common Vision Takes Environmental Message to California Schools

VOICE OF AMERICA

by Mike O'Sullivan

A California organization called Common Vision is taking a message of environmental protection to schools around the state. Two dozen young people have been on the road since February, traveling in buses powered by recycled cooking oil. At each stop, they teach students about conservation through music, dance and other fun activities and help them plant fruit trees in their schoolyards.

The non-profit organization was formed in 1999 to bring together environmentalists and gardeners with musicians and artists. The result was a two-pronged approach to conservation education: presenting skits and songs showing how waste harms the environment and greenhouse gases worsen global warming, and planting trees that produce oxygen to help the environment and provide fruit to help feed us.
