You don't have to be part of the Eco-Committee to get involved in benefiting the environment through Eco Projects. We want to encourage everybody to get involved and so we have provided some ideas of things you can do. The different ideas listed below are worth different numbers of Merits. Once you complete the project, submit it using the correct form and this work will be sent to us in an email so that your work can be admired (maybe even displayed!) and merits can be added as recognition of all your hard work!
