My project will start a recycling program in our school community by buying bins of three different colors and placing them throughout the school building. We also notified the Sanitation Department and NYC Parks & Recreation about placing recycling bins in the park next to our school.

I am working closely with my city, the school district, and ASB at CHS to completely redo my school's entire waste system. I am developing new maps to see where each bin should go, get student input, and think about the types of bins we should use. Once they are in place, education will be the next component so they are used correctly.

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.

Our action will showcase how other schools in our district and our community can utilize more efficient irrigation and utilize drought tolerant plants to create a practical and aesthetically pleasing garden. Our project will be a means to educate others in mindful irrigation that uses less water. Students will use the garden as a platform to teach other students, their parents, our staff and community about how our garden operates and sustains using less water than a traditional garden. Students as Junior Gardeners will help care for the garden, we will have community garden work days, and staff will take an active role in maintaining and improving upon the garden.

We will be working in science class to study the chemistry behind bioplastics, and test various recipes out. We will then work in teams to think of new ways to use these these reengineered plastics in single-use plastic items. We will also be collecting plastic items that we would have put into the trash bin and upcycle them into new products. Finally, we will be building a website with all of our creations and our products to spread our ideas and build awareness of the problem of single use plastics in our oceans.

As part of the community walk, students identified the following problem: too many milk crates were being disposed of and not being reused. They also saw the need for green spaces around the 6th grade classrooms. They decided to fix both problems by coming up with a brilliant idea. They will use the crates as planters for native plants as well as seating areas around the 6th grade classrooms. We will survey 6th grade students and teachers to find out how their attitude has changed in regards to the green space area around the 6th grade classrooms and reusing the crates.

Most of the plastic bottles in our school are not being recycled, ending up in landfills. Students will decorate blue plastic containers with marine life and nature to remind others of the impact plastic bottles have on the environment. Students will visit classrooms and give informative speeches on how the recycling program will work and how often they will come by to pick up the bins to be recycled. In partnering up with the Los Angeles Conservation Corp, they will come by and collect and recycle the plastic bottles and credit our account on a quarterly basis. The proceeds from the recycled bottles will go for the purchase of a water station to refill reusable water bottles.
