Our wish for this project is to increase community awareness on how to properly recycle and keep our parks clean both for humans and wildlife.

The KRB sub committee will plan and organize the town-wide litter cleanup in conjunction with the Great Massachusetts Cleanup and several local businesses and organizations.

It has already inspired students and parents to think about plastic use. It has promoted much thought about the devastation and rubbish waste problem in our world. We wish to keep making our special bags and give them to people to help spread thought and the students good work.

We made posters and we are going to put them near the Charles River Esplanade where people will take notice. We plan to talk to the Esplanade Association and the Mayor's office to tell them about the litter we saw and our desire to make our world healthy and green.

We will create a sanctuary in the wooded area just behind our school. Again our goal is to create habitat that will provide shelter, food, and water to the animals that inhabit this area. Our students will be assisting with habitat preparation, building of shelter, food/water stations for various animals, and create a viewing area a short distance from the sanctuary for viewing and studying local wildlife. We are using recycled wood for most of this project, along with recycled materials as much as possible.

Students have already started to "take action" for the Earthbench project. The Kids for Positive Change presentations about Sharks & Sea Turtles and Parrots & Backyard Birds, taught students about the problems these species are facing, with a focus on plastic bags, bottles, pieces and straws. Students chose creating and building an Earthbench for their Classroom-Community Action Assignment! Last school year (2016/2017), 85, 4th grade students, from the Kids for Positive Change Flagship Project, started making bottle bricks (plastic bottles stuffed with plastic pieces and plastic bags). Now, 5th graders, these students, along with all of the 4th grade classes and remaining 5th grade classes (572 total) have started working on the Earthbench Project by collecting materials and bottle bricking in the classroom, in art classes, at home...even while waiting for the bus! Step by Step Action: 1.) Kids for Positive Change has been working with the school Art Teacher to design the bench. The bench will be made in the shape and likeness of a dragon, the school system's mascot (Lakeside Dragons). 2.) With the design in place, Kids for Positive Change has reached out to Earthbench.org organizers, seeking guidance on how best to construct the bench, using bottlebricks, straw, clay, sand and cement. 3.) Teachers, students and community members and the Founder of LEADERship Ashtabula County, have started to collect plastic bags, plastic pieces and bottles for the bottle bricks. 4.) Collection bins for plastics will be established in both Superior and Erie Intermediate Schools by Sept. 30th, if not sooner 5.) Students have started and will continue to make bottle bricks (the foundation of the bench) from Sept. 2017-March 2018. 6.) 4th & 5th grade students will build the bench, using the bottle bricks as a foundation, staring April 2018, with the help from an experienced builder. 7.) 6th grade students will contribute to the Earthbench, by making the teeth and spin of the dragon, out of recycled materials 8.) The Earthbench will be "unveiled" on Earth Day 2018, or in May 2018, on our Kids for Positive Change Celebration Day! 9.) The Earthbench creating, building and unveiling will be documented for the school newsletter, website and local paper, ensuring community involvement and sharing of knowledge!

I will go around the city and pick up trash in public places like the park, soccer fields, and other places. I will also attempt to travel and pic up trash and save animals other places, but I might not get to it.

Third graders will make a plan with a clean up schedule. Our school has adopted our street, so we will clean there and on school grounds. We will recycle what we can from the collection and hope this makes our community nicer and safer for all people and animals.

I have divided this project's action plan into six steps: 1. Responsibly dispose of roadside litter while also tracking litter-data using the Litterati app (www.litterati.org) 2. Create a poster including the collected litter-data, reasons to pick up litter and suggestions on how to keep the community clean 3. Publicly display poster at the town library, schools, senior center, etc. as a method to raise awareness about the problem 4. Seek town consent to distribute government cans along official walking trails 5. (Upon successful completion of Step 4.) Fundraise for government cans to be distributed along official walking trails 6. Publicly promote ways to keep Rehoboth Litter-Free (Example: Host an event at the public library, create a website and social media pages, host a public lecture about the project and its success)
