The 6th grade students of the Severo Ochoa school in San Javier plant trees to offset the carbon footprint of their time at the schoolThe acting councillor for Community Services, María Dolores Ruiz has visited this morning the school “Severo Ochoa”, in San Javier where the students of 6th grade, which culminates its Primary stage, have planted two trees to offset the carbon footprint they leave after their passage through the centre, coinciding with the World Environment Day which is celebrated today.

The trees, donated by San Javier Town Council, are two mulberry trees, which have been planted alongside other existing trees in a part of the playground where the intention is to create a large shaded area with a small forest of this variety. Before the collective planting of the trees, the pupils read a manifesto in defence of the environment in which special reference was made to the danger posed by waste such as plastic.

María Dolores Ruiz expressed her gratitude for the gesture made by the 6th year pupils who are leaving the school to draw attention to the footprint left by the greenhouse gases we emit, which can be offset by planting trees because of their capacity to absorb carbon and produce oxygen. At “La Paz” school in San Javier, the 6th graders will also plant trees in the school playground to offset the carbon footprint of their time at the school.
