The Problem

Green Team is a school club that meets during the school year and during the summer to help keep our school and surrounding area clean and green. We help with the recycling once a week, take on 2 green service projects per school year, help to keep up the green spaces outside our school and assist with the garden club. Our goal to help green-up our school as much as we can, while bringing awareness to environmental issues and conservation.

Our Plan

We will know our group is successful by increasing our rate of diversion each year as our school and local community groups. We also hope to do some community outreach this summer to help increase recycling in our community. This mini grant would be used to help the Green Team build a community recycling program. Last school year we installed a plastic bag collection station at our school. We hope to install more and 1 or 2 in the surrounding community.
