For the trip week in High School, 8 of our students went to the westernmost islands in Indonesia, Simeulue. Aside from amazing surf opportunities, these islands still contain a number of endemic species and relatively pristine natural environments. However, the island is unprotected, and challenges, like poaching turtle eggs and planting palm oil, could threaten this area. The students explored how Green School parents Jane and Luke are employing sustainable enterprise to conserve this beautiful place.
Please check out a visual guide of our trip we created to share our experience.
We also encourage the Green School community to support the crowdfunding of the best virgin coconut oil around, Aluan, on Pledge Me. We got to see the complete process of production, and trust us – when we say they take every measure to deliver a product that is sustainable.
