Why Environmental Education
Ibadan, Oyo State capital rightly be acclaimed as the second most developed city in south western Nigeria after Lagos but unfortunately, the state of hygiene seen around the city can be termed as worrisome. The city is the largest capital in Nigeria and it was the fastest growing city in Nigeria as at the time of independence. Despite the development the city has seen over the years, good hygiene and efficient waste management is still hard to come by. It is to this end CleanEdge as one of its mandate has decided to take “safe the environment” campaign to secondary schools in the state as it is believed that the knowledge about environment will reduce the quantity of waste generated. With this initiative, CleanEdge Solutions hope to reach over 200 schools by November ending.
