Green Team members provide school leadership in environmental sustainability. We learn, teach, work as a team, get dirty and keep our materials for recycling clean!
So far this year we have learned about plastic pollution & why recycling is important, the new bioswale next door & how it helps keep our rivers and groundwater clean, and the importance of local food for strengthening local economies and reducing the use of fossil fuels. We have made posters, picked up trash, designed advertising for our new recycling at breakfast, planted flowers on our grounds, explored the orchard next door, visited with the city water quality program and the Mt. Mercy sustainability department.
