Our original idea was to make a completely recycled tree so we could educate the public on deforestation. We then branched out into Leaves for Trees. By reaching out to Whole Foods we secured sponsorship for our project. For every leaf someone put on our tree, Whole Foods would donate 1 dollar to Roots and Shoots. We then donated the money to Plant-it 2020, an organization that plants 1 indigenous tree for every 1 dollar donated.

The first step in the process was to complete a long survey of our school (Tom McCall Upper Elementary- Forest Grove) covering the topics of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle | Integrated Pest Management | Indoor Air Quality | Non-Toxic Products. We first had to get approval of the Administration Site Council. When this was done, we formed a committee of 5 members to interview our counselor to get the needed information.

Our project will teach kids that they can come together in their communities and plant seeds in their homes or even in their schools. We have asked our classmates in school and at home to help us gather recyclable bottles and yogurt containers. After we collected, we sorted, cut holes for the water to drain, and even added string to some of the planters. In the end, we will attend a harvest festival and get kids and family members involved and do a hands on activity. We will assist the kids in making their own little planter to have in their homes. The kids who participate in this we learn that doing things like having little planters we help us in having fresh air and it would look beautiful in a home.

This project will take place at the Langley School and we will start recycling about December 15. The project will be completed at the end of the school year. We will be putting bins into each area where snacks and lunches are eaten. Students will be able to easily recycle their drink pouches there. Our group will collect the drink pouches and send them to the recycling organization.

My co-teacher and I are implementing a combined Roots & Shoots and Youth Service America (YSA) project in all of our Living Environment CTT classes (120 students) throughout the Human Impact Unit taught in April-May. We are having students identify the main cause of carbon emissions in the community using the mapping technique developed by Roots & Shoots. We are then having students write and implement community action plans in order to reduce carbon emissions in their community. Finally, students will be graded according to YSA’s 4C model of Career and Workforce Readiness: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
