We are the Mean Green Machines!

Welcome to the Mean Green Machines Blog!

Hello!

We're an advancing team for the Lexus Eco Challenge! Help us with our goal of making our world a healthier place one tree at a time! We recently planted a bunch of trees to help solve the problem of ozone depletion. In order to take our plan to the next level, we did some research about the ozone layer:

One of the layers surrounding the earth is the ozone layer. It is very important because it helps to stop some of the sun’s ultra-violet rays from getting through to the earth.

Too much UV rays can cause bad health effects on people, plants and animals.

Ozone layer depletion has become a problem because there are gases called chloro-flouro-carbons that cause damage to it. CFCs are used in some spray cans, refrigerators, air conditioning systems and other items.

In our first project we learned that by planting trees we could help the ozone layer because trees absorb UV rays.

So, planting trees is a great and easy way to help but there is more we can do!

Keep following us and we will show you more ways that we can all help reduce ozone depletion.

Planting...
This is us at the Newtown Forest Association. We are planting trees with peat moss and fertilizer . These trees help improve the air quality by absorbing dangerous UV rays.

In this image Bob, is demonstrating how to properly plant the trees. We will later add mulch and water and wait until they grow a little bigger before they are relocated from the tree nursery.

This is two of the girls working together to plant one of the many trees. They have dug a hole and now gently pack it in with peat moss and fertilizer.
This is the logo we created. Our mission is to spread the word about planting trees to help our environment, not just in Newtown but all over the world!
