LASCO continues to partner with the The Rootz Releaf Project to embark upon an awareness building programme titled LASCO Releaf Environmental Awareness Programme (REAP), targeting primary school-level children, both actively and passively. The collaboration also encourages children to become more deeply involved in caring for the environment, emphasising recycling and conservation.

During 2014-2015, the programme directly reached over 6,500 students and resulted in the planting of 4,500 trees islandwide and the collection of more than 40,000 plastic bottles.
