Our campaign will be successful if students can accurately explain the importance of recycling/composting and are motivated to continue the work throughout the year and at home. We intend to purchase a worm composting bin(or 2) and associated materials as well as seeds/plants for the gardens.

This project will raise awareness about 'greener' alternatives to common back to school purchases. This will be done using a flyer that will be created online, printer, and distributed at freshman orientation and back to school night.

My project will be a year-long theme of The Great Outdoors. During our year together, my 5th grade students will spend the year learning about ecological and environmental issues: biodiversity, deforestation, and pollution. Outdoor learning and nature-based activities will be imbedded throughout the year. As we learn about these topics, students will participate in awareness campaigns; create an indoor and outdoor garden; and organize local clean ups. These activities will run throughout the year. As we learn, it is my hope that what the students learn will inspire them to tackle other conservation and environmental topics. Therefore, I would not be surprised if learners came up with other impactful activities to help their learning during this year. This Great Outdoors projects is important for my student population, as we live in a mostly city environment, and students have little connection to nature. I am already seeing their eyes widen with wonder as we venture out and connect with nature. Thank you for this opportunity.

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 project will provide a collection point for neighbors to bring their fall leaves for composting. We have worked with our local schools to establish a collection point and coordinated youth groups to assist seniors in raking their fall leaves. We have arranged for a Master Composter to educate neighbors on the "Whys and Hows of Backyard Composting". Neighbors who compost can take donated leaves to their compost piles and the remaining leaves will be placed in a dumpster for composting at a local facility.

This project will allow students to examine wasted rain water locations on campus, research options to improve the use of this wasted water, as well as, design and implement functional environmental friendly solution on campus. Students will improve our garden experience by designing landscapes that harvest this excess rainwater.

My project will educate people on single-use plastic impact and how to reduce/eliminate it. I will create a single-use plastic free challenge for the month of July for people to join to reduce their single-use plastic waste.
