Looking to show its commitment to environmental protection, Garnier recently acknowledged the work of a group of students from specialized high schools in Puerto Rico that participated in the “Ambientando con Garnier Green Team” competition.

With the support of the Scuba Dogs Society and Sacred Heart University, Garnier Green Team developed the competition to create a positive impact on the environment and on future generations. High schools with a focus on science programs conducted environmental projects with a direct benefit to their school community.

The University Gardens High School in Río Piedras won the “Innovation” award, the Dr. Juan José Osuna School in Hato Rey took the “Creativity and Expression” award, CIMATEC won for the most promising “Educational Impact” project, the Pablo Casals Fine Arts School in Bayamón won for “Effort”, the San Pedro Mártir School in Guaynabo won the “Entrepreneurship” award, while the José Julián Acosta Theater School in Old San Juan won the “Community Inclusion” award.

All of the participating schools won a $500 cash prize to continue developing their environmentally friendly projects.
