Hi, we’re from the Eco-Club!  We were noticing a fair number of reusable containers get left in the playground by kids.  Often they end up broken or put in the garbage.  Students, please make sure that when the recess bell rings to come in, you check to make sure you have everything you brought out with you.  It’s a good idea to put your things in the same place while you’re playing.  Thanks for thinking of the earth!

  1. Hi, we are from the EcoClub.  Today we would like to share with you some tips and ideas on minimizing plastic.
    1. Say no to straws- stop using them
    2. When your parents go grocery shopping, remind them to bring their own reusable bags
    3. Bring a reusable water bottle to school
    4. Pack your lunch in reusable containers
    5. Give up gum.  Gum is made of a synthetic rubber, meaning plastic.

Do your part to help the Earth.  Cut the plastic.
