Henderson Co. students form new environmental club

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - Some students in the Tri-State are working to clean up the environment and they're looking for more hands to get involved.

Three Henderson County High School students have created the "Environmental Club."

The students have already got the ball rolling.

After taking a trip to "Living Lands and Waters," the students reached out and received 24 recycling bins from the conservation organization.

They've placed them throughout the school.

"The environmental club's goal is to promote, above all else, education because not a lot of people realize how bad it really is, especially in America," said club member Andrew Sauls.  "We make up almost 1/3 of the pollution that is put into the atmosphere."

The club held their first meeting Wednesday after school.

They are hoping more students will join soon.

The members are planning to start a river clean-up day and dive into other community activities, all with the mission of going green.
