The students of the EarthSavers club identified the use of single use plastic utensils during breakfast and lunch as an issue that needs to be addressed. The school distributes over 400-utensil packets everyday, which end up in the landfill or become trash on our campus. Our students want to develop a campaign that educates the school community about alternatives to single use plastic and why using less is important. They would also like to create a program that provides reusable utensils to students. Students would like to see a reduction of at least 80% of the use of the utensil packets. This data can be collected from the cafeteria manager. Fund raising and our Roots and Shoots mini-grant will provide the funds needed to start a pilot program that will provide reusable utensils to the students in 3-6 homeroom classes. These students would be given a before and after survey to collect information on the viability of the program that can be presented to school and district administrators.

Our wish for Beach Bucket Brigade is to involve our beach-going community members in keeping our beaches clean. The emphasis with be on encouraging children to participate in helping the environment and educating the public on the threats litter poses to wildlife. In addition, we will also teach people how to reduce their carbon footprints and plastic usage. Ultimately, we would love for town, county, and state beaches to adopt this program.

The 5 girls who proposed the plan to a teacher got a response from Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and the Environmental Protection Commission. Our PTSO is helping to recruit volunteers. Our project will pull debris from the canal on Saturday, April 27th of 2019. We hope to get a "water goat" to catch further debris from traveling down stream from our location.

My project will be monthly Bay Trail cleanups with a coalition of Amelia Earhart Elementary School, Lincoln Middle School and Alameda High School students, as well as any community members who want to join. Every month, on low-tide days, we will walk to the Bay Trail with buckets, trash-grabbers, gloves, and a wagon. We shall proceed to pick up trash and debris for two hours. We will also weight all the trash we pick up and compile the data to send to the NOAA. My project will build fellowship between people of different backgrounds and help our students be protectors of our waters. Additionally, as there is a bird sanctuary right next to the Bay Trail, my project will protect its inhabitant by keeping the shared waters clean and sanitary for avian habitats.

This project will provide our school with a safe space for academic studies. We plan to do this by having students from the Latin department, and a few other teachers in the school collaborate together in an effort to restore the courtyard and pond.

Our project will achieve our dreams of a healthier environment by educating people at the Oakland Zoo. We will focus on the negative effects plastics have on our oceans and what we can change about our daily lives in order to lessen those effects. As well, we will (like we've done in the past) organize more beach cleanups periodically throughout the year to get people from all over the community to be more involved. Beach cleanups are a great way of educating the public about plastic pollution and also gives people a chance to help out. These cleanups bring everyone together to make our world a better place! We have also created a fun station for our Teen Wild Guides to volunteer every weekend! We have teen volunteers who walk around the entire zoo and pick up trash that people leave behind. Trash can be very dangerous for the animals at our zoo and we don't want any of it to find its way into any of the exhibits. Not only will this make the zoo a more beautiful and natural environment, it will also show the visitors what they can do to help maintain the zoo's beauty and fun!
