We have several campaign goals: 1. Organize a town-wide cleanup in the spring, following the success of our last cleanup 2. Distribute litter collection barrels around town 3. Implement smaller campaigns, such as a social media challenge to pick up 5 pieces of litter every day
We are hosting a workshop at Barnes and Noble on June 30th from 12-4. At the workshop we will dissect mobile phones and identify the metals inside them, have a discussion about where these metals came from and why they are important to recycle, and introduce the idea of Fairphone Smartphones and Fair Trade Electronics. We are raising awareness of ape conservation and fundraising for Camp Friendship's annual summer retreat to Maine.
The idea is to screen documentaries about animals and the environment. In order to reach more people and have a wider impact, the screenings will be free of charge for anyone who would like to attend. Ideally I would like to establish an annual screening of such films in Athens, Greece (through Jane Goodall’s R&S Greece) and call it “Environmental Film Day”.
We are going to use Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics to create a ripple effect of positive environmental change.
We have contracted with Shred Nations for secured document shredding and recycling. We have contracted with Green Sheen for recycling latex paint. We have organized with the GMSN to have various booths onsite. And we have made all of the arrangements with the school to use the parking lot.
My wish for this project is to teach others to reuse their plastic store bought gallons and fill them with drinking water. Also these gallons can be used to make bird feeders.
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
