Mr. Beck from San Diego CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stop Throwing Away Resources!

My students want to recycle paper goods on our campus using recycling bins and gloves.

  • $365 goal

This project expired on June 30, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are driven young people who want to make a difference on our campus on a daily basis. The main group of students who are the driving force behind this project are 4 young men who wish to change the recycling process on campus, which in turn will benefit the entire campus! These young men are looking to begin recycling all the paper on campus as our school does not currently recycle paper products.

They are passionate about keeping our school clean and helping their peers develop better habits when it comes to being wise with recycling goods.

Their ideas are clever, ingenious and thoughtful. These guys want to change the world by starting here on campus.

My Project

These materials will make a difference throughout the entire community on campus. The recycling bins will be placed in various classrooms to encourage fellow students to be more aware of recycling and the benefits that come from being proactive in regard to recycling. The gloves will keep the students hands clean while they go from class to class picking up the recycled paper on a routine basis.

Activism is such a great quality to instill in young adolescents.

With this project, students will begin to participate in our democracy in a way that is larger than themselves. Please help them grow as citizens and keep our school clean.
