Keeping the World Turning Green

Help me give my students lab coats and gloves to stay clean while assisting others in the cafeteria during our recycling program, which includes emptying cartons to recycle and collecting food scraps for compost.

My Students

Do you want to know how to change the world? Just ask one of my students. My students come from a rural community of high poverty. They have many disadvantages that directly impact their learning and growth, such as unstable home lives. My major goal is to provide this vulnerable population a vision to overcome obstacles to their future success. I strive to make these visions come to life in our science curriculum. Even though our population is so fragile they have proven themselves to be motivated to learn and lead. They prove this daily during our cafeteria recycling program. Here they lead others in sorting their breakfast and lunch into recyclables, compost and trash. This is one aspect that has helped our school to achieve Lighthouse status as a Leader in Me School.

We would like to keep our earth shining green.

The students are an integral part of the recycling system in the cafeteria, and while assisting others in the sorting of tray trash at the recycling table they deal with messy situations. Therefore, they need aprons and gloves. Please consider supporting our students who are leading future environmental decision makers.

My Project

The lab coats and gloves will keep our Green Team student leaders clean while assisting others in the cafeteria recycling line to recycle, reclaim and up-cycle the various foods and supplies on their trays. During breakfast and lunch all students flow by the two recycling tables with four spots designated as compost (worm food), liquids, recyclables and trash. Four to five members of the Green Team keeps things running smoothly, which requires their directing, touching and getting in the action of the process. This can lead to messy situations. So far we have managed by using aprons made from feed sacks and disposable gloves which are rather large for the small hands and not eco-friendly.

My wish is to offer my Green Team students better equipment for them to lead and serve others while addressing their needs and to stream line the cafeteria recycling process .

We will continue our green efforts with the supplies we have, however it would be so nice to know they were better equipped to focus our efforts on assisting others to get the job done.
