Our www.OneLessStraw.org website also allows the pledge forms to be filled out electronically and we even have an interactive map which will show you the number of people that have signed up in a particular zip or postal code. it will also list every business and school that has signed the pledge as well. Every time you submit a pledge, your name goes into our raffle where we will be giving away cool prizes at the end of the campaign.

My project will create and set up a lasting garden program at my highschool in which the whole community will partake in as well as renovate and landscape other areas outside around my school to encourage students to spend more time outside in these comfortable environments and be more eager to go to school. I will achieve this by applying for numerous grants and receiving support from the town.

We will assist by making signs and posters. We will talk to our families and neighbors and spread the word (maybe even look for a Helping Hand). We have learned mapping skills on Google Maps. Working as a Team has taught us that when we put our minds and efforts to things, we CAN make them better and get the job done!

Our outdoor classroom will become a thriving wildlife habitat attracting and protecting a multitude of urban flora and fauna, including milkweed, hawks, bats, insects, bees, birds, moths, and butterflies to the garden in an area of North Brooklyn with incredibly limited green space. PS 132 students raise money in their annual Penny Harvest and use the funds to give back to the community. Students have consistently chosen to donate a portion of the funds to the Garden every year.

The goal of all exhibits will be to follow the Roots & Shoots mission to make a positive difference to either people, or animals, or the environment.

We would like to learn from the Roots and Shoots program, how to work more effectively with the community; not just with providing sustainable waste management solutions (to people around protected areas where no system of waste management has ever existed) but also with improving living standards and increasing livelihood options for the community members.

In order to get the most out of the experience, we will make it into a fun game with prizes! We will split up into teams and spread out in different areas around our school, and meet back at a designated location afterwards. Those who collected the most trash will be awarded special prizes.

First, students chose an environmental problem and a team to research the problem. Students write letters to businesses and organizations requesting information to distribute to the public. Next, students create a display board and creative props to use when they present their projects in a local park for Earth Day. The Earth Day projects are presented to parents at our school's Spring Open House. Students arrange with local businesses to display their Earth Day projects for a week downtown to further educate our local community. Students write to our local government representatives to promote their environmental solutions. Students participate in a variety of environmental action activities, from microtrash clean up to protect our local California condors, to riding electric skateboards, to solar energy promotions. Students create an Earth Day in the Park movie and post it to different websites or social media, to help educate our global community.
