This project aims to inform
We will know if we've been successful if our town puts recycling in all of the parks and recreation sites in town. Our students can take pictures of the new recycling stations in town.
We will continue to reduce and recycle organic matters using the compost bin we created. We will use the compost in our student built raised garden bed near the lunch benches and plant flowers which will invited pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds.
Walk around our neighborhood and pick up any trash- Replace lawn with native vegetation.
In January, the children will decorate reusable canvas shopping bags by painting pictures of nature that will benefit from the reduction of using plastic bags. They will bring their bags home with a note explaining this project. The note will also ask parents to keep these special bags in their vehicles, and to use them when shopping for groceries and other items.
The project is basically involving the collection of all waste materials used in the campus.
Our project will put the final touches on a year long endeavor by our students to raise community awareness of recycling by: reducing, reusing and recycling trash into an artistic sculpture.
We will focus on a green project to reduce waste and reuse materials from the classrooms repurposing them into displays and installations to beautify our school and community.
We will first raise awareness of the litter problem in town on 13th August 2018 then do a community litter pick around town hall on 16th august after that we will teach people how to recycle everyday objects themselves as a hobby at a pop up at town hall on the 18th August and finally on the 22nd of August we will conduct a community litter pick from the top to bottom of the high street all who attend will be given a certificate that officially makes them a member of Coleraine litter squad.
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
