(North Bergen, NJ—March 15, 2017) The High Tech Environmental Club, formerly known as the PHAT (Protecting Habitats, Animals, and Trees) Club, recently produced an infomercial in which club members explain the Environmental Club and its activities, past, present, and future, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech.
The infomercial features President Darrian Beam of Jersey City, Vice President Jeremy Lewan of Bayonne, and Secretary Shelina Chotrani of Secaucus.
“The [Environmental] Club aims to protect the Earth, a home we share with countless other plants and animals,” notes Lewan, in the infomerical that he helped to produce.
The Environmental Club meets once or twice a month, whereby members present the latest news regarding the problems our Earth faces and what teenagers can do to help alleviate them. Such issues as our carbon footprint, climate change, waste reduction, and preserving biodiversity may prove daunting, but the Environmental Club believes that, through teamwork, members can help tackle any environmental issue.
Besides disseminating information on the Earth’s present status, the Environmental Club plans and directs fundraisers and other activities to raise money for organizations that benefit the welfare of the planet, such as the National Wildlife Federation, the Nature Conservancy, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Sierra Club. The club also has an Earth Day celebration in the works to inform the school about ecological conditions.
The club also gets close and personal with nature by participating in beach cleanups, tree and garden planting, and embarking on hikes in Ramapo Mountain State Forest. The club always welcomes new members, and one may peruse the infomercial at the following link: https://youtu.be/MWaULEj1_OI
