We’ve been documenting the amount and types of litter we find on the beach. It is our hope to see a decline as we continue our efforts. Aside from a decline in trash, we hope to see an increase in beach clean-up participation, and an increase in the well being of wildlife and healthy ecosystems. For example, we have been thrilled to see an increase in Monarch butterflies this year at the beaches. As we do the clean-ups, others will hopefully feel inspired to reduce, re-use, recycle, dispose of waste responsibly, and protect wildlife.

In January, the children will study about ways to reuse, reduce, and recycle plastic. They will involve their families by providing them with reusable canvas bags to use when shopping. The children will each decorate one canvas bag, with symbols or pictures of nature items. The earth and some of its resources will be items suggested for the children to paint on their bags. When the bags are dry, the children will take them home with a note to parents explaining how the children have learned about reducing the use of plastic and asking them to keep this bag in their car to use when shopping at local stores.

We would like to rid the island of Martha's Vineyard of single use plastic. We would like to start by banning plastic water bottles and straws in West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah.

Part 1) WASTE AUDIT Our Waste Audit Team will be collecting information about the amount of plastic generated by our community's boba stores. Because there are currently no statistics surrounding this topic, we will be releasing the results to the Bay Area and our city's government. This will also help us determine the impact of our project as we can compare "before" and "after". Part 2) APPEALS Our Appeals Team will then go back around to the stores and explain our project. According to Alameda's new food ordinance law, boba stores are technically breaking the law by providing plastic straws regardless of whether customers request them or not. We have talked over our project with Alameda City's Department of Public Health. If these boba stores agree to endorse our reusable boba containers and offer discounts for those that bring them in, we will allow them an extension of time to change out their plastic straws into renewable options. (We don't want to hurt their business as they ARE all members of our community as well.) Part 2) BUDGETING/OUTREACH We will be selling reusable boba containers and stainless steel straws to high school students during a publicised lunch event. These will be sold at a low price as to be affordable for all students. RethinkDisposable will help us procure these items. Part 3) MAKING IT HIP What we envision is that these cool-looking new boba containers will become the new "Hydroflask". We are planning to get everyone on this bandwagon. Additionally, thanks to our waste audit, we'll be able to measure our impact efficiently. We're very excited to see what happens!

My project aims to raise funds to provide reusable water bottles for public school students in Rialto, CA. At schools where bottle refilling stations are unavailable, funds will also be provided to have these stations installed. This will be achieved through fund raisers. My project will also aim to provide resources to students about the importance of reducing plastic waste in their own lives and how they can make a difference in their communities through Roots and Shoots.

My project will address the issue of reusing things to make enjoyable toys for animals as well as making a book share at the zoo that the visitors can donate books as well as take and read while at zoo. My project will also include raising butterflies and teaching the public about how the grow, benefit the environment, and mainly educate them about the importance of butterflies as well as what types of plants you can plant in your garden to help them and provide a home for them. I am in the student volunteer at the LA Zoo so I will be achieving this project with some of the other student volunteers. I will do this by asking for donations of books from the other student volunteers and my friends at school.
