Green Team members provide school leadership in environmental sustainability. We learn, teach, and work as a team.
This year the focus of the Green Team is COMPOST! The students researched how we could compost our food waste, and formed a partnership with a local company. Now we compost ALL of our food waste and paper towels throughout the school. We are the only school in the Cedar Rapids School District to compost at this level!
The Green Team has taken their message on the road and presented to teachers and staff members from around the district. They will continue to spread their message to encourage others.
Their next project is taking our composting even further. The Green Team wants to prevent waste, divert even more of our waste into the compost (paper!?!) and use compostable products throughout the school so even less goes into the trash and recycling bins.
