I have been collecting wine corks from friends, family and neighbors. I collected over 1500 wine corks and sold them on Ebay. The money I earned from selling my corks, I sent to Save the Chimps Foundation in Fort Pierce, Florida. My funds have been used to purchase bananas, blankets, laundry soap and toys for the chimps who live at the sancutary.
A group of volunteers will help to renovate (and then maintain) the edible garden using recycled supplies. When vegetables/fruit are ready to be harvested, they will be given to the local zoo, so that the wild animals' food is fresh. Some of the plants include figs, beets, banana tree leaves, corn stalks, and catnip.
We will support organizations that have already worked to restore this beautiful river such as the Bronx River Alliance while joining in the effort by coming together with volunteers to raise money and maintain the condition of this ecosystems.
Our students are going learn about what it takes to make grow and harvest their own vegetables. To do this, we will build and maintain a raised garden bed, learn about different plant, how they grown, and how we can help other's with what we are learning.
We will ask our families, friends, school and community to participate by dropping their old phones into a box. We will collect the phones to be E-recycled. The project will end on New Years Eve 2017.

We, as students of the UAE, made it our mission to do our part in spreading the word about Earth Hour by conducting a campaign on March 24. Earth Hour is the world’s environmental movement towards action on climate change and it involves a straightforward action: switch off the lights and other electrical appliances for one hour, between 8.30pm to 9.30pm, every year in March. The aim is to show your responsibility and commitment. This year Earth Hour was celebrated on Saturday, March 25.

In May, we watched Jane's video on how the mineral mining in Africa is putting the indigenous communities of chimpanzees at risk. The teachers have sent out notices in our weekly newsletters to all parents about the project. Two baskets with a sign identifying them as the drop off sites have been placed in each building entrance. The devices collected will be mailed to the recommended recycling group in June.
Our Green Team will gather our community and pick up litter and other foreign objects from the nature.
The purpose of this event is to encourage reusing of household products/goods. People will be able to bring usable items from their home and give them away, while at the same time, finding items of others that can serve in their households.
