Promote resourcefulness and encourage creativity. Discourage single use plastic bottles and develop a simplistic informative curriculum that focuses on shaping a child's ideology centralized on the complexities of ecology. Actively engage the children in projects that communicates this idea that the smallest contribution has the capability of affecting our environment in a larger scale. These projects will involve the kids taking initiative in "eco gardening," (not limited to this creative alternative) teaching them valuable qualities that is beneficial to their development; responsibility, perspective, and determination.

This project will be completed by reusing and recycling materials to hand-make the cards. I will also hold card-making parties at my house to involve more peers on this important issue and take a break from school to utilize their creative side.

This project will require making this an event for the school as well as making flyers to publicize this event. I will make sure that it is announced on the morning announcements as well. I am offering service learning hours for students to earn for volunteering their time to clean up the school. I also will recruit my advisor to attend the event.

The group is collecting bottles and brainstorming ways to incorporate the garden into our workspace. The area is a fence and in LA our options for viable plant life is limited, especially as we are conscious of our dwindling water supply.

Over the school year, we will go around at lunch emphasizing the importance of recycling to students and encourage reusables.

We will promote our day of action by advertising it on our web page, and will create posters advertising the event. We will purchase plants and plant them in our garden. We will also pick up trash around our school and in the park across from the school. We will sort the trash into the correct recyclable categories, bag each category and send them off to be recycled. We will use this project as a service learning activity where students will learn valuable information about how to correctly plant and landscape a garden, as well as, learn why a clean environment is so important.

To start we assessed our school to where or what needed the most help. We educated ourselves about the proper ways to recycle and what can be recycled. We looked to see where garbage was collecting and if there were garbage and recycling bins around. We also put up recycling signs that let people know what they could or could not recycle. We put signs around the school that invited people to our All School Clean Up. After school we walked around the playground and cleaned the garbage and sorted them into the correct recyclable categories. We had garbage bags, recycling bin, plastic gloves to help us pick up garbage. We also wrote a grant to try to get a recycling bin on the playground. And eventually we would like to plant a tree on our freshly cleaned playground.

Our project will help lesson or hopefully eliminate trash on our nature trail by offering reminders through signs we make and place on the trail. We will also make it easier for people to recycle their trash when they're visiting the trail by adding a recycling bin.
