    End of Year Cleanup Champion: Help us divert waste by gathering school supplies that would otherwise end in a landfill.

    • Set up a box for collections
    • Spread the word among teachers and staff: Items accepted at Scarce include books in any condition, school and office supplies, crayons, art and craft supplie
    • Let the D65 Green Team Champions know by the first week of June so we can organize a single trip to the recycling site.

     

    Morning Announcement Champion: Increase sustainability awareness and educate students on waste reduction and other ways to be green.

    • Contact your principal and/or teacher who coordinates morning announcements. If students are involved in morning announcements in your school, make sure there is a consistent, motivated staff member who can provide a brief scripted message that will remind students and staff to be green.
    • Figure out the the frequency of the green announcements: once weekly? More?
    • Here’s a list of “Green Messages” to get you started.

     

    Event Chair Sustainability Liaison: Decrease waste at your school events by sharing our greening guidelines with event chairs at your school.
