Here is how the project went:

Awesome! The club had fun working in groups to pick up trash and asked when the next campus clean up would be.

Through this project I/we learned:

Our school had a lot more trash on campus then we realized. It was quick and easy to pick up the trash working as a group.

What I/we might change:

We would like to host monthly campus clean ups. Teach the other students about the different types of recycling and compost bins, so they use them more often.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Working together as a team and helping my school!

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

Organize items needed for the event ahead of time.
