Marbury Beta Club Learns to be Green


The students at Marbury Beta Club wanted to make a difference at their school and in their community. It is an honor to be selected for the club, and living up to the high ideals of leadership is a challenge.

Under the leadership of Traci Evans, I was invited to speak with the students about Beta Club and learning to be green. People Against A Littered State and Marbury Beta Club partnered together because they saw a need to be good stewards of their environment. PALS is happy to partner with Marbury Beta Club and will supply any tools needed to implement their environmental programs.

Students are presently recycling and look forward to more projects focusing on creating a cleaner and better environment for their school. Marbury students learned what their individual carbon footprints were. Some were very surprised about how their everyday activities contribute to carbon dioxide levels. They plan on having a "Cleanup Day," and participating in other environmental projects.

PALS’ motto is "Don’t Drop It On Alabama." If your school or club would like to be part of the PALS Clean Campus Program, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
