We want to connect the rain gutters, which drain right on top of the concrete, to rain barrels on wheels. We also want to make a large funnel from an old pop-up tent to catch rain water that forms a lake area on our playground after it rains.

We are worried about food waste, and so we are going to pilot a compost program in one of the classrooms in our elementary school. Students will have an outdoor compost bin, but they will also have a smaller bin class to collect things like apple cores, banana peels, etc. Students will learn about the science and beneficial factors behind composting and will observe results such as decrease in classroom trash. Students will then work to educate the student body and then hopefully implement a school-wide composting policy.

We will educate through the arts- recycled projects, rap music video, drawings and digital collages. We will collect street debris samples and coastal beach clean-up data and analyze our findings, to infer, and draw conclusions. Students responded by creating a rap video to help bring awareness to the problem. Here is a link to the video: https://vimeo.com/172581448

My goal with my project is to help encourage students to recycle their clothing by donating to local thrift stores in the area and to show them the benefits of buying reused and recycled clothing. I want this event to be more than a clothing sale; I want it to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling and reusing clothing. Besides it being an economic solution, it is also one step towards helping the environmental and waterways. The more people that are encouraged to recycle and reuse will have a larger impact on the environment in turn. The plan for my project starts by gathering clothing donations from the community and my high school. I am currently asking local thrift stores for donations and have already received donations from the students at my high school. While getting donations, I’ll be applying to grants and contests to help fund my idea and make it a reality. For my project to become a reality, I will need materials to showcase the clothes when the day of the thrift store event comes. These materials include hangers and clothing racks, all of which can be purchased second hand. Once all the materials are gathered, the Met High School Thrift Store will be opened to the students and public to get second hand clothing in good condition and for affordable prices. At the event there will also be informational flyers, telling the public about the positive affects buying second hand clothing and donating has on the environment.

My project will take place over the course of a semester and allow students to get points by using reusables in their homeroom classes. At the end of the year, the class with the most points will get a pizza party to celebrate their good efforts.
