My goal with my project is to help encourage students to recycle their clothing by donating to local thrift stores in the area and to show them the benefits of buying reused and recycled clothing. I want this event to be more than a clothing sale; I want it to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling and reusing clothing. Besides it being an economic solution, it is also one step towards helping the environmental and waterways. The more people that are encouraged to recycle and reuse will have a larger impact on the environment in turn. The plan for my project starts by gathering clothing donations from the community and my high school. I am currently asking local thrift stores for donations and have already received donations from the students at my high school. While getting donations, I’ll be applying to grants and contests to help fund my idea and make it a reality. For my project to become a reality, I will need materials to showcase the clothes when the day of the thrift store event comes. These materials include hangers and clothing racks, all of which can be purchased second hand. Once all the materials are gathered, the Met High School Thrift Store will be opened to the students and public to get second hand clothing in good condition and for affordable prices. At the event there will also be informational flyers, telling the public about the positive affects buying second hand clothing and donating has on the environment.

Our project will teach others about the importance of having a healthy watershed. Students will create watershed models to educate students and parents at our school's open house event. The focus will be on how humans interact with the environment and how we can make a positive impact on having a healthy watershed.

The Gregory School’s Roots and Shoots project would reduce people in our school's use of plastic products such as plastic water bottle, zip lock bags, plastic silverware, plastic cups and so on. We will achieve these through doing video presentations about plastic pollution, giving incentives for students to not use or buy single-use plastic products and for restaurants/stores/etc. to not provide so many single-use plastic products (i.e. Starbucks).

Students will learn the importance of utilizing alternative energy sources to generate electricity. First, they will read two books: "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba, and "A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story" by Linda Sue Park. These two stories will transport students to two African nations where water conservation and energy production are essential for survival. Following their reading, students will explore alternative energy sources by creating miniature wind generators and solar cells. Next, students will devise a public program to promote water conservation and the use of alternative energy sources in our community. This program will include the creation and distribution of energy & water awareness stickers to younger students, as well as making and sharing an educational power point about their learning.
