My Students

Traditional school has changed immensely over the years. The days of writing, drawing and completing projects by hand have been replaced by cutting, pasting and typing permeating our students’ lives. Even as tech savvy schools flood communities everywhere, some families aren't properly equipped. Enter teachers who care… about their students and the environment!

My school is a Title I school, meaning that 95% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

As such, our students may not have access to a computer or to regular internet connection at home. Our school is fortunate enough to have a computer lab, a mac lab and several computer carts. These allow us to equip students with 21st century skills. However, our district's go green initiative has removed printers from schools. Although a worthy cause and effort, students have printing needs such as reports, current events, research papers, photos for projects, and many other documents needed for classroom submission. If printers were in the classrooms, students wouldn't be stressed out about where or how they could print their work. Many hardworking & diligent students are painfully aware of their parents' limitations by having to work multiple jobs to provide for their households.

My Project

Why a printer if we’re trying to go green? Because it is necessary, mandatory even. My 8th grade students have started a coffee service business for their teachers. The purpose is to supply a much-needed commodity to teachers in a convenient location at an affordable price while starting and running a business. They created beautiful flyers and announcements and applications for employees all of which require a printer.

Printers abound office supply stores!

They range from the very cheap, about $20, to the very expensive, in the thousands of dollars. But have you looked at the price of ink lately? Many times, the price of ink is so much that some people opt for purchasing a new printer instead! Toners range in the hundreds whilst their printers are quite possibly at least 10 years old. Cartridges for these are horrible for the environment and need to be disposed of very carefully. Some companies still have services for returning empty cartridges, but this still doesn’t change the costs.

The printer my students and I seek will both help our needs and be environmentally friendly while being cost effective subsequent to the purchase of the machine. Epson has created a machine just for us! The The wireless EcoTank all-in-one with Cartridge-Free Printing uses ink bottles instead of cartridges. These reduce our waste and eliminate cartridges possibly ending up in nature. Its capabilities make its perfect for classroom usage and consistent yet variable printing needs. It will enable us to print in a variety of formats while keeping aware of environmental factors. The best part is that the ink cost is about $15 each. On a teacher's budget this is a steal! The upfront cost of this printer will provide us with accessibility, convenience, and eco-consciousness!
