Last Friday, Neinas Elementary hosted Ms. Mary Claire Lamm and Bee Green from Green Living Science for a presentation on recycling best practices. Sustainability Coordinator Mrs. Lazrowicz’s Green Team was in attendance at the assembly, which was designed to address contamination issues, like food and non-recyclables, that they had been noticing in the school’s recycling bins.
Students from the Green Team at Osborn create up-cycled woven rugs out of plastic grocery bags. Noticing the abundance of plastic bags and creative talent within the team, students elected to explore alternative uses for the bags. The Sustainability Coordinator at Osborn is Ms. Shields.
