Transcript Dedicated students join together to keep earth's CLOCK TICKING DANGER... the earth was crumbling due to excessive misuse! Through countless ages, man has taken advantage of the soil and the animals without realizing the danger of his actions. Environmental issues have entered into an increasingly large arena of concern. Many students are aware of these issues, and were willing to stop the earth's destruction however they can. Team Earth was one of the more active groups on campus. Their goal was to increase environmental awareness within the student population. One chief focus was to get a comprehensive student-involved recycling program on campus. Former president Robert Kennedy said, "Of course, as in the past, we have had other activities. However, the recycling program is the one function we hope to keep as a constant. This ongoing event will allow the students to play a more active role in environmental protection without placing too much pressure on them." In the past, Kennedy and other members brought in several guest speakers to address a variety of issues. Benefits have also been sponsored that have related to environmental issues. "We are not limiting our involvement to activities that are merely on campus," emphasized Kennedy. "We also do beach cleanups along the coast and are active with other city wide environmental groups. Not only do we work, such as our cleanup of an Austin beach, we like to have fun by having an excellent beach party!" Also involved with this group was the Rainforest Action Group, a takeoff from Team Earth. The Rainforest Action Group is also a part of the Rainforest Action Network, a world-wide organization of approximately 200 groups. "Our goal is similar to that of Team Earth in that we wish to educate the general population about the environment and about being an activist," said co-chairman Ray Sbrusch. Although their main focus is on rainforest protection, the students want to make everyone aware of the dangers involved in ignoring the environment. However, the hardest task is being aware of all the things that can be done to save the earth and the rainforests. "These things are what we can do to keep our rainforests alive. By doing these and by becoming concerned about the earth, we can all make a difference. Many times, it means having patience and getting through a lot of red tape, but it's not too late to help, " said Ray Sbrusch.-Edna Lopez TEAM EARTH Rowl: Lynda Goltzman, LauraFaulkenberry, Melanie Burr, David Woodbury.
