Hi, and welcome to OSC's Arctic Team page. Here you will find a few questions and answers about OSC.
What is OSC?
OSC (or One Step Closer) is a fundraising team working to help conserve the planet for future generations. It was established in October 2022 and ever since, we've been asking ourselves, "How can we do better for the Earth?"
We decided to start with our Arctic Team (saving polar species and permafrost) and our Save the Bees Team (conserving habitats of bees and other pollinators), and now we're already One Step Closer to saving the world.
Here are some of the species that we are focused on saving:
N. Rockhopper Penguin
Tuna and other fish
Who Founded OSC?
This may surprise you, but it was a group of 10 fifth graders asking people to donate to save the penguins who founded this fundraiser. Our goal is $5,000 to save the polar regions!
What Can I Do for the Earth?
A few simple things you can do for the planet are:
1. Conserve energy - turn off the lights when you leave a room and turning electronics off when you're not using them.
2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - see your local recycling regulations and reuse what you can!
3. Pick up litter - many people know that plastic is bad for the environment, so grab some gloves and help pick up litter when you can.
4. Expand your horizons - research eco friendly ways to garden, work, and live in general!
5. Unite - spread the word and tell everyone we need to act now.
Thank you for giving what you can! No donation is too small.
I hope that you have a great day!
Fifth Grade Student
