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.

We are a small troop of Girl Scouts that have partnered with the original Green Up Day founders to help build awareness to youth. We have reached out to other troops (both Girl Scout and Boy Scout) to help increase participation by encouraging them to participate in Green Up Day, but by also spreading the word around town. We have also partnered with he town to collect the bags of trash that we collect so that they will be properly disposed of and recycled. To date we have over 15 community groups and volunteer organizations participating in Green Up Day!

Our Environmental Science 12 class runs our high school's biweekly recycling program. We collect paper/cardboard, as well as cans/bottles. We currently have large, tall, cardboard recycling bins in every classroom and office. They take up way too much space. Replacing those bins with these incredible, reusable, smaller, more versatile bins would make our collection time decrease AND we will spend less time out of the classroom running the program! These new bins will each be lined with a recyclable bag liner/garbage bag, so that the bags can be replaced as needed, thus saving the bins forever.

We will read stories of people who have made a difference and improved their environment, discuss their methods, apply the examples which we can use as models, and implement the changes to make our environment a better place.

For this project we will purchase a compost machine and have all of schools lunch remnants turned into nutrient rich compost for the garden. We will plant new flowers as well as fruits, berries, and vegetables. We will also be putting together a hydroponic garden. All of the food that is grown will be open to the public to be taken as needed. We will do all of this with the help of the Key Club community.

Third graders will make a plan with a clean up schedule. Our school has adopted our street, so we will clean there and on school grounds. We will recycle what we can from the collection and hope this makes our community nicer and safer for all people and animals.
