Abstract

The purpose of this study was to find the relationship between environmental practices and awareness in promoting sustainable solid waste management practices among public elementary school teachers at Sto. Tomas North District for the school year 2021-2022. The study employed descriptive research design. In one instance, descriptive-correlational design was used to describe and understand the variables under study. The researcher opted to use descriptive survey method to determine if the environmental knowledge and awareness is significantly related to solid waste management practices of the teachers. A survey questionnaire was used as the main tool in collecting data for the study. Weighted mean and standard deviation were utilized to assess the solid waste management practices of teachers. To test significant relationship between variables of the study, Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient was used. Findings revealed that there is a very strong association or correlation between these variables. Therefore, the findings may mean that the null hypothesis is accepted and affirmed that there is a significant relationship between Environmental Practices and Awareness and Solid Waste Management Practices of Public Elementary Teachers. However, integration of these knowledge still has constraints.
