From animal adoptions to hikes to recycling routines, Mercy Green Club members advocate for a better environment. According to Seefelt, despite the Green Club’s reputation of simply eating healthy snacks and watching movies, the club teaches members how they can best help keep the earth healthy, through informational videos and presentations.

“I think it is really important to bring awareness to what we are doing to the earth,” said junior Green Club Officer Grace Seefelt. “Slowly over time it is going to start deteriorating, and if we can try to stop that process, then that’s what we’ll do.”

The Green Club planted trees around Mercy last year and adopted a seal, overwhelming successes for the club. However, this year they plan on doing much more.

“We are going on a hike this spring with [University of Detroit Jesuit High School],” said Green Club moderator Mrs. Brandi Lavely. “We are also trying to adopt an animal again this year as the girls seemed very interested in that.”

According to Mrs. Lavely, the club hopes to stress the importance of recycling not only to Green Club, but also to everyone at Mercy.

“Mercy is a green school already,” said Mrs. Lavely. “But if we can incorporate the little things, we can make the world a better place to live in.”
