The Eco Club meet on a weekly basis and discuss the environmental issues that matter to us. We plan and take action to help improve things around the school and local area. This can range from planning a litter pick to running a plastics pollution awareness campaign. We also fundraise for environmental charities.

We follow the Eco Schools program. Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme in the world. Mearns Academy is one of only 69 schools in Aberdeenshire out of a registered 247 that have Green Flag Status. We got our first Green Flag in 2010 and have managed to retain it since.
