Tree-Duce, Tree-Use, Tree-Cycle
Each school year, Framingham High School consumes an immense amount of paper. This year, the Environmental Awareness Club is looking to give back to the environment in a new way! We have partnered with Tree-Plenish, an organization that aims to replenish the environment with lost resources. Based on prior paper usage, our goal is to plant 210 trees in and around Framingham on May 1, 2021. If we achieve this, we would make up for all of the paper used by the school during the 2019-2020 school year!
Please consider joining us in our efforts. You can volunteer a team to help with the planting, request a tree to be planted in your yard or on your company’s property, or do both!
Support Our Mission!

Hi! I'm a junior at Framingham High School and president of the FHS Environmental Awareness Club. In my free time, I love going on runs with my cross country team or walking my dog, Arden. The outdoors brings me and so many people health and happiness, which is why I am excited to be a part of this Tree-Plenish project.
My name is Ella Downey. I am a junior at Framingham High School and I run cross country and track. Working with Tree-Plenish has been extremely interesting and I am grateful that I have been able to give back to my community through this process.

The Environmental Awareness Club at Framingham High School
The Environmental Awareness Club at Framingham High School was founded in 2018 by a group of environmentally concerned students and faculty. We work to bring awareness to environmental issues through education and outreach. Our club members meet with various school leadership teams to develop and implement more sustainable options in our district and with community members to help improve the health of the environment in Framingham. It is our hope that if we continue to educate students, staff, and community members about the impact their choices have on the environment we will inspire positive changes that will lead to a brighter tomorrow.
