On the morning of September 19, a group of students
from the International School of Florence gathered to clean the hiking and
off-road trails of the Chianti countryside.

 

Their goal was to make the countryside a more pleasant
place by purging the Chianti hillsides of litter. Scouring 3.5 kilometers of
trails, the students stuffed 21 large trash bags with refuse that included
gloves, bottles, cans, paper towels and cigarette cartons-items that could have
been recycled rather than discarded.

 

The project was a bonding experience for all. The
students worked as a team toward the goal of making Chianti a litter-free place
to live in and visit.

 

The project will continue throughout the academic
year. The students hope their work will inspire others and encourage people to
be more respectful and appreciative of their environment.
