My group of students set up recycling boxes within the school for materials that could be reused for art projects. After months of collection, we would like to use these recycled materials to create beautiful cards, artwork, and placemats to inspire and encourage the senior citizens in our community. We have an aging population and many who do not have family or loved ones close by. Together our club decided to make videos to play on our school announcements explaining the importance of our project as a way to enlist the help from our entire school of 650 students with the project. We are partnering with a local church, nursing home, and Meals on Wheels with the intent to provide approx. 250 pieces of spring art made from 100% recycled materials to each organization to be distributed to their seniors with love from our school. The items will be picked up by members of the above organizations during our April club meeting. Invited to our meeting are multiple community members speaking on the importance of recycling and philanthropy within our homes, schools, communities, and globe.
It will focus on working for the people and serving the environment for the better future
Our class (Class 5C of Huzella Tivadar School, Göd) manually picked up trash and garbage from the forest called "Kiserdő".
We are contracted with All American Records Management for the document shredding. We are contracted with Green Sheen Paint for the collection of and recycling of paint. And we are planning on contacting ARC to arrange a collection point for household items and clothing.
We have contracted with a shredding company and a latex paint recycling business. Arrangements will be made with ARC for the household items and clothing.
We volunteered this summer in a junior gardening program with students from Waukegan. We helped to teach about the importance of composting and how it can give back important nutrients to our soil and decrease hazards to the environment. We also picked up fresh produce from areas where it was not needed and delivered it to food pantries and community organizations that distributed it to people who do need it. Watching the "Wasted", Anthony Bourdain, documentary was also very helpful in understanding the problem. We also gleaned at a local farm and delivered that produce to people who needed it.
We are hoping to help our close community by providing warm clothing and food to those in need, and by also recycling/reusing used blankets, coats, socks and shoes, we will also help the environment.
We haven't planned all of them, but so far, we've participated in the World Peace Day, "I Will" Campaign in September and the Red Ribbon Brigade for the Troops. (We made them and wear them every Friday in honor and rememberance.)
Me and Nayoun from S. Korea will be creating an international, online video database with videos from projects from all over the world, so anyone can have access and watch them. You can inspire and be inspired! Anyone can send their video as long as it shows a project done by them, regarding animals, people or the environment. In order for your video to be featured, you must plant a tree and record it at the end of the video! In that way, more trees will be planted and everyone will benefit from this action!
We will seperate our project in 3 discrepant sections. The first one will be about pollution in the forest, since people scatter litter all over the landscape. The following one will be about the never-ending fires in it. People keep doing it even though it is forbidden to light up one no matter your intentions, leading to numbers of conflagrations to increase constantly. The last section will be abput the stray animals that are wandering all over the village, even in the forest, dying from starvation or in the cases of ''Fourni'' by hunters shooting them accidentally or even on purpose.
