Environment Community Service Program

The GFWC Environment Community Program encourages us to become stewards of the earth by working to preserve the world’s resources, protect wildlife and domesticated animals, live sustainable, and beautify our communities and enjoy nature.

Environmental degradation is cumulative and many scientists warn that we are at the tipping point. There is no time like the present to ACT!


If we all work together, we can maximum the effect of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on our environment, our community and our world.


GFWC Challenge Project: The 3’Rs = Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (REDUCE - refers to using less of the Earth’s resources EX: paper bags, electricity and cut back on the trash we generate, REUSE – when you dispose of anything consider if it has life in it Ex: a cell phone can be donated and magazines can be shared, RECYCLE – this the R that has caught on over the years. EX: recycle your newspapers, pill bottles, metal objects, and plastic.)




In the GFWC Manual you will find detailed information and suggestions for your Club Work and ideas for meaningful projects for your community, country and world!


Cheryl Black, GFWC WV Environment Chairman
