The RECO club is a student green-club that volunteers to clean up waste from our natural areas as well as greening parts of the city in collaboration with NYC Parks Department by planting trees or working on park clean-up. The club is also affiliated with NYC's Office of Sustainability's Zero Waste Schools. We have a campaign to rescue some trash found within our school to make art projects from it (bracelets out of plastic bags, sculptures out of bottles, etc.) as well as push-in into classrooms to proactively teach other students on how to properly recycle. The RECO Club also takes trips to natural areas or facilities where innovation is taking place so that our urban youth can experience 'nature' or what people are doing around the city to promote sustainability.

We will participate in an art show in Detroit Michigan that is showcasing artwork from all over the United States in order to bring awareness to the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child. We are creating a collaborative wall hanging from recycled materials at a free workshop for handicapped individuals and it will be displayed from February to April, 2018.

We are currently undergoing a large classroom remodel to provide more local young learners the opportunity to enroll in our program and connect to nature while learning to care for our planet! We want to make a classroom that is environmentally friendly, using resources that are responsibly resourced or recycled. A large part of our remodel is focused on bringing the outdoors indoors so that our explorations can continue once inside the classroom walls. We plan to create a large discovery center area with space for students to observe elements of nature and record their observations within their personal nature journals.

After several brainstorming sessions we narrowed our idea down to recycling mismatched lost socks to create homemade snowmen (decorated with recycled materials) to deliver to the local retirement communities. The snowmen will be two-fold; a winter decoration stuffed with birdseed to be feed to wildbirds come the first day of spring!

We are constructing a box for our school. In this box we will collect german "Pfandflaschen" directly translatet to "deposit bottles". For every bottle you get in Germany 25cent back. These bottles will be recycled. We donate the money to Mary´s Meals. With 25cent you can support a child 5 days with food!

We will build a garden in the back yard of the school that is fenced to keep out the deer that are prevalent eaters here, with raised beds to be used for planting in the spring of 2018. The garden will be built by parent volunteers from our school, including members of the newly formed Green Committee. The design for the garden will be a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, and children.
