Help students from Erdenheim Elementary and Springfield Middle School reach their project goals. The Recyclebank Green Schools Program empowers children to understand their impact on the environment and to take action.
The Erdenheim Elementary School Green Project “Making a Difference” will incorporate environmental education into a school-wide art project and installation. The art project’s design and direction will be originated by Esther Cohen-Eskin, artist in residence, with a curricular lesson from Matthew Meyer, Guidance Teacher. Donate your points to the Elementary School Project Now.
Springfield Township Middle School has created a Green Schools project to begin composting food waste generated at the school cafeteria. All students will be instructed on proper composting methods and student volunteers will remove the compost bins from the cafeteria on a daily basis. Outdoor compost bins will be monitored throughout the year by students and teachers to ensure that the food waste is properly aerated and watered, and then harvested for re-use. Donate your points to the Middle School Project Now.
How Can You Help?
- For every 250 points donated, Recyclebank will provide $1 towards the School’s Green Schools project. Not a Recyclebank member? Visit www.Recyclebank.com to get started.
- Spread the word about the Green Schools program to parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors and family members and encourage them to donate their points to the each school’s project. Every school that reaches at least half of their goal will receive an additional $500 towards their project.
The Recyclebank Green Schools program is one way you can turn your Recyclebank points earned from curbside recycling into real dollars to benefit our community. But hurry, the Green Schools Program ends March 16, 2014.
