"I am very glad to be part of Green Chair, as i’ve learned a lot during my volunteer experiences with them. Knowing that there is an event coming up where we get to recycle is probably the most exciting news to me because i very much love doing whatever it takes to help our environment and community and with Green Chair, there are people who share the same thoughts and values.
Any teenager would skip a chance to recycle for fun because we usually don’t think of cleaning as something that is fun, and that was how i used to think, until i went to the first event and got hooked. Once you start, you can never stop because no matter how dirty it is, how rainy or cold it is, doing something that not only benefits the environment in the long run, but also our society and the generations behind us brings you a warm feeling. A feeling of accomplishment and excitement.
Thanks to Green Chair, i am now green and making changes in my life everyday to help our world be clean and green." Margaret (Green Team member) 2013
