- Advertising our project on the T.V. - Protecting Animals - Cleaning the beaches
For the Athens Marathon we participate and donate to the charity to help kids and older people.
Students will research recipes for salads, healthy snacks and simple lunch ideas based on environmentally conscious practices. Greek products will be the focus. The work will be compiled in an e-book form.
We are raising money to support the Glyfada Rescue Center in Athens, Greece. It supports the Caretta Caretta turtles only through donations. Grades from 2nd - 5th are holding bake sales and are selling stickers they each draw of turtles to support the Rescue Center's cause, “Healing through Love”!
Goal # 11 (United Nations): Sustainable cities. Making schools more inclusive, accessible. Making schools more wheelchair friendly.
We will be working closely with Accessible Travel.gr which is an organization that helps people with disabilities have access to various places. We will be working with architects and civil engineers to design the ramps and infrastructure needed for students in wheelchairs to be able to have a safe environment. We will ask administration and Board of Trustees to assist us with the budget needed to make this
We will have an items drive for a local nonprofit, Family Promise. We will make posters for our school advertising the drive. We will make announcements over the intercom and present our project to classrooms during morning meeting. We will collect toiletries, baby supplies, toilet paper and more to help families. We will also make origami with words of affirmation to give to people to make them feel happy and better about themselves.
The youth will purchase socks for all the residents at our local nursing home. They will put them in gift bags for each one and deliver them as well as visit with each resident.
Our campaign will start with raising awareness - a newspaper fashion show, class recycled materials poster contest and upcycling challenge. We will use assembly times to educate students on how to recycle, work with our building manager and cleaning service to set up the recycling scheme and monitor if students are using recycling bins properly.
We will create a compost bin, we will fill garden beds with healthy soil, we will plant various seeds, and use our homemade compost to make the soil more nutrient-rich.
Pet owners buy so much pet food and it comes in big plastic bags. Often, these bags are bound for the landfill. "Fido Recycles Too" reuses these bags to create durable, reusable grocery bags simultaneously reducing the single use bags and reusing potential waste. In order for "Fido Recycles Too" to really make a difference, people need to know why single use bags are so detrimental to the environment. Therefore, this project will include an interactive educational display to be used in conjunction with the distribution of "Fido Recycles Too" bags. Local farmers markets, environmentally focused grocery stores, and the county fair will be the first venues for "Fido Recycles Too." Pet owners and non pet owners alike can help this project succeed, by reusing pet food bags and helping to educate the public.
