Thinkers Meet Up is committed to working with Thinkers to save our environment.
In the Autumn 2019 term, several Thinkers came together to create a series of inspiring videos, information booklets, and a an environmental pledge. We discussed the power of becoming thoughtful consumers. We discussed the dangers of plastic. We donated $$ toward reforestation .
