In July of 2009, 3 high school freshmen formed GreenTree of Tulsa as an environmental group that would help reduce the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Our plan is to plant trees in Tulsa and surrounding areas to sequester Co2. While working on this project we came to realize that not only the planet and humans are affected, animals are also greatly affected. Climate change and high Co2 levels are severely harming the polar bear's habitats. Due to their dangerous situation, polar bears have become a large part of our project. Since July of 2009, GreenTree of Tulsa(GTOT) has planted over 2,150 trees to help save the polar bears and our environment.

"When in Rome, do as the Romans do"


What did the ancient Romans do when they weren’t staging gladiators' fights and throwing Christians to the lions? Being eco-friendly, it turns out. British archaeologists analyzed 1700-year-old samples of Roman glassware from 19 sites in the U.K. and found evidence of widespread recycling. The specimens contained elements used in two very different glass-making processes, leading the scientists to conclude that the Romans mixed and melted pieces from a variety of sources, like modern recyclers do. No word on whether Roman chariots got good mileage.
