Port Chester students pledge to make the world a cleaner placePosted: Updated:
Students in Port Chester are joining forces with peers from Mexico in a pledge to cut carbon emissions.
"Recycle," says Morgan Saunders, a fifth-grader. "Use less energy...Spend more time cleaning up my local parks and helping clean up my school."
The entire fifth-grade class at Park Avenue Elementary School is taking part in the One World organization's push to halt climate change.
District officials say the school is signing a zero-emissions pledge and promises to work toward a cleaner environment.
Students say they're taking this work very seriously and hope they can make a big difference by taking small steps every day.
"We're going to use hybrid cars, electric cars…no gasoline, nothing like that," says Juan Pablo Gomez, another student.
Students will present what they learned at Sharing Success Night next week at Park Avenue School.
