    Israel's youth groups go green
    Various youth movements actively pursue Environmental Protection Ministry's 'green badge'

    Israel's youth movements have added a new environmental code to their activities, with the aim of promoting the principles of environmental responsibility and sustainability, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.


    Many chapters have launched recycling and waste separation projects and have even barred the use of paper plates and Styrofoam cups.


    Some of the leading youth group branches, such as those belonging to the Israeli version of the Scouts, have even applied to the Environmental Protection Ministry for recognition as "green chapters."


    The ministry has formed a joint committee with the Education Ministry and the Youth Movement Association to review such petitions, and create the appropriate "green badge."


    According to the Environmental Protection Ministry, dozens of chapters nationwide have applied for the badge.
