Ms. Baker's world changers will get to learn all about how we can make less trash and why we need to. We will then have a reusable bag design contest with the winning design being printed on a couple hundred reusable bags. The kids will get to greet customers at our grocery store and offer them a free bag as well as talk to them about our campaign!
What our project will do is that it'll stop the food desert in Camden and help beautify this portion of it and let people of our community come over and plant what they desire. It's all free and we also take very good care of the plants.
We will continue to collect certain recyclable items back to the manufacturer through TERRACYCLE.

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.
We will start gathering recyclable materials from homes (wood, cardboard boxes, used paint, clothing, storage bins, etc.), make a thorough plan of the shelter and which animal it is targeted for and start building.
We will play with a large group of kids at our science museum and teach them about circuitry as they design their own circuit board with recycled materials.
I will try to show you "tricks" and ways to save water. Easy to do, it's only force of habit.. Intentaré enseñaros "trucos" y formas de ahorrar agua. Fáciles de hacer, es sólo cuestión de costumbre.
We have network with the Little Libraries in Omaha to set up a collection area. Once we have collected several books and magazines we will deliver them to the shelter to be given out. Future reading groups will come to read to the young. As of June 102 magazines worth $250.
