Founder and President - Elizabeth Tran
Hi, I’m Elizabeth Tran, President of Teens Go Green Global. Thank you for visiting our website! Our goal is for teens to be involved in the community and spread the message of being eco-friendly in every possible way in our daily lives!
Going green is something I was always involved with as a young kid. I love the idea "One man's trash is another man's treasure!" so I always make sure I recycle everything I can. There is so much trash in our world today, but if you think about it, more than half of it could be gone if everybody recycled or collected compost. The key is to spread the word and involve everybody we know in the green movement. Our motto is based one of John Denver's quotes, "No one person has to do it all but if each one of us follow our heart and our own inclinations we will find the small things that we can do to create a sustainable future and a healthy environment."
Through public speaking and going out to benefit other non profit organizations, I believe teens can make a difference to the world. Teens are able to make the connections with other organizations now so in the future this positive impact can be stronger and spread wider. Teens are the future, and teens have the power to choose if they want to make a change. If we start now, we can encourage others to do the same!
Currently I am representing Hong Kong at Pageant of the World, and I'm excited to use this opportunity to push my platform and spread my message in going green! Please check the Events and Activities for all my latest updates! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to write something in the Contact Us. I hope you enjoy the website!
Let me know if you want to work with me with any volunteer events! I would love to help out: [email protected]
Co-Founder and Vice President - Alexander Tran
Welcome to our site! Congratulations on taking your first step to be involved in the community and to help to raise awareness to protect our environment which is our future. From the city beautiful Orlando in sunny Florida, I am Alexander Tran, Vice President and Co-founder of Teens Go Green Global.
Together we are dedicated to spread the "go green" message to save our tropical rain forest, our natural habitat, our ecosystem and last but not the least our money. Green living is just a habit and a living style that we can and should all do! Please help spread the message and check out our current events.
As an active swimmer, I noticed that there are many recyclable plastic bottles and cans that were being trashed during sports events. Our group is committed to set up recycle bins and collect those recyclables in as many events possible. We collect thousands of water and Gatorade bottles every time!
Currently I am a senior at the University of Florida in the Department of Soil and Water Science. My work in the lab and research has continuously empowered me to live a more sustainable lifestyle. I'm passionate about nature, and studied at Earth University's summer program in Costa Rica.
Thank you for visiting our site and I hope that you would start to go green now!
Community Board Leader - Bianca Dsilva
Hi! I'm Bianca DSilva, Community Board Leader of Teens Go Green. As the president and founder of my school's UNICEF club, I constantly witness the desire that many teens have to change the world and make a difference. I believe everyone has what it takes to fulfill a "Go Green" lifestyle, but all we need to do is give a little motivation and guidance. Teenagers in our society can make a memorable contribution to our planet through simple activities to be eco-friendly. Whether its through recycling used paper for school or helping to plant trees, everything counts, no matter how minimal it may seem.
