- Use materials from last year and encourage your students to do the same.
- At end of year, gather materials and get them ready to be reused, renewed or recycled for next year vs. trashed.
- Look for products that use recycled paper made from high percentages of post-consumer waste.
- Implement a second chance paper rule – encourage all to use both sides of a piece of paper.
- Use felt on bulletin boards vs. paper as its sturdy and wont fade. You will be able to use it for many years!
- Challenge students to have no waste days (reuse or carry out as much as possible- lunch, papers, drinks, etc.)
- Encourage walk, bike, carpooling to school
- Have book lists available for students that are eco related
- Physically turn over garbage cans so to remind folks to think about what is and isn’t trash.
- Have kids make PSAs about green initiatives to share with others students (i.e. litter-less lunch)
- For classroom events reduce disposable foodware when possible. Ask parents to use reusable plates and utensils. See SMART event guide.
- Ask students to share their “green play of the day/week” – eco acts of kindness
