After attempting to single-handedly take this task on myself the first year, I decided to pass the buck to a group of women the next year that had the extra time and the same passion as myself for keeping our planet clean. They did an incredible job growing our Green Team!!! This year, I had the privilege of joining back up with them to keep the torch going. It's been so exciting to watch the school evolve into one that is so much more conscientious about recycling!!
Even though this ginormous pile of juice pouches nearly sent me over the edge, thank you Lord for Vanesa, it was so exciting to see it shipped off to Terracycle for a better purpose than clogging up our landfills!!! This pile filled up three big packing boxes and was shipped off with two additional boxes--one full of inkjet cartridges and another with cell phones. Great job Green Team!!!
