Our world is trying to go green but we are so far into pollution that its very difficult to start over but it is never too late that is why today would be a good time to start our going green 2017.  Going Green is a matter of saving up energy and water supply to try and save planet earth from more harm that humans have already caused.

To Go Green means taking care of where we live, our earth. Going green means paying attention to the 3R’s.

The 3R’s are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. On this day the GAPians made promises to Go Green this year for the various activities like to save energy, to save water, to save paper, to take care of plants, to segregate the waste and to look after the cleanliness.
