It has for its mission to be a partner of the Abrenian youth and other people within and outside the school community in taking care of our environment through Recycling Art.

The activities attached to Project Eco-Art are three-fold: recycle, recreate and remember.

Project Eco-Art advocates Recycling so that people would go for zero wastes, reduce energy consumption, control air and water pollution to save money, energy and environment to protect our Mother Earth.

Recreate means encouraging the people to creatively turn old new thing into new art like the utilization of used boxes, old magazines, and other recyclable materials that can be recreated into different beautiful and useful items such as open holders, bookmarks, puppets, bags, decors and all sorts of stuff.

And Remember to make it a habit to recycle and recreate. It's always fun and fulfilling to create art out of trash and old materials.
