We will pick up trash until the entire area is clean.

We have put paper bags in the math classrooms as batteries are often thrown in the trash. We hope that the teachers put the batteries in the paper bags and we will dispose of them in a recycling center.

Today, we are going to go to the lake with trash bags and slowly move across the area, picking up any litter we see on the way. We will spend hopefully about an hour, but we will make sure that we pick up as much trash as possible. Our hope is that there is a visible difference after we are finished, and that the area looks generally cleaner. We are hoping that we will inspire the community to stop littering and to clean up the beautiful nature around them. We also want to make this area more generally enjoyable for the public.

For our project we will build a recycling bin for old shoes and place it in the front of our school, and then announce it for the school to come participate in.

We will accomplish this project by hanging up signs near the water fountains in our school. It will make people become aware of the harmful affects and remind them to use a reusable bottle.

I will pick up trash around the area to reduce waste.

My project is a simple sign with big bold letters. It is a reminder for people that there are people who care about the environment and maybe, just maybe, they will view the sign and change is made.

We made an oath for our community to sign that says they will stop using this harmful plastic and will use a reusable water bottle instead to decrease there's and our ecological footprint. We will go door to door around our local park to try to get people to agree to our vision and sign our petition. The oath: One use plastic is extremely harmful to our bodies, animal’s bodies, and the environment. Ingesting food or drink that has been stored in one use plastic can bring extremely harmful chemicals into our bodies that can cause birth defects, neurological difficulties, certain types of cancer, reproductive defects, and gender development issues. Plastic litter in the oceans have killed many animals and have even beached whales because the plastic does not digest and clogs up their digestive systems. Other animals, such as turtles, are also in danger of getting tangled in plastic waste. Plastic water bottle tops have no way of being recycled, and most plastic material is not recycled as well. Also, plastic water bottles have extremely loose regulation of water contamination and there is no way to know if the water we are drinking is contaminated. I, _________________________, vow to stop using these harmful materials. This dedication will lower me and my family’s carbon footprint, and my small contribution will help the community as a whole. Also, I will be ingesting water that is healthier for me and has active government regulation to stay that way. There are alternatives to one use plastic water bottles, such as dishwasher-friendly reusable water bottles. I will use these instead of plastic water bottles.

We will know if we are successful by our observations as the birds feed. We will be able to use this to address several of our first grade science standards. Our plan is to collect data on what birds appear, what type of food they prefer, and if different food attracts different birds.
