Educate pupils at our school to limit their use of plastic - by opting for other reusable alternatives, recycling and reducing waste. To clean up the local environment around our school.
Our 4 Goals: 1. Reduce and Recycle our plastic bottles and cans. 2. Use reusable straws or paper straws instead of plastic. 3. Cut the plastic drink holders. 4. Create ART about the animals we are trying to help.
Every Saturday my 5-year old and I are gonna go for a walk in our neighborhood with trash bags and pick up all the trash we’ll find that we will then safely dispose of.
Please see above. This is an ongoing project. We hope to share information in our morning announcements.
Cleaning beaches on every weekend,planting trees and flowers on the areas where we will be allowed to do so during the weekends and conducting seminars at the schools on how to preserve the environment through our club.
We’ve been documenting the amount and types of litter we find on the beach. It is our hope to see a decline as we continue our efforts. Aside from a decline in trash, we hope to see an increase in beach clean-up participation, and an increase in the well being of wildlife and healthy ecosystems. For example, we have been thrilled to see an increase in Monarch butterflies this year at the beaches. As we do the clean-ups, others will hopefully feel inspired to reduce, re-use, recycle, dispose of waste responsibly, and protect wildlife.
We are going to use Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics to create a ripple effect of positive environmental change.
Cleanup days; Educate ourselves about the problem and solutions; Provide education at local Earth Day events; Sponsor a local student poster contest to promote awareness of decreasing litter/proper disposal of trash; Print t-shirts promoting Clean Lakewood Parks
