Today was recycling day, which means every single class brings down their recycling and our amazing ECOS team sorts through it. There is always a ton of trash and many unknown liquids, but today was not as bad. Today, the bucket was less than halfway full and there was not nearly as much trash, today we improved. Our goal is to get the movement out to eventually eliminate the need of a trash bin where we recycle each week and to prevent any liquids from needing to be dumped. The movie making class brought some of their equipment down today and filmed some of our recycling efforts. The students interviewed a few ECOS members as well as a custodian to get their perspectives on our schools recycling job. The class is working to edit the clips together and create a promotional video to post to our school twitter, news, as well as to the blog. We hope that it will be a powerful message to everyone and that our recycling habits will continue to get better. Let's begin to think outside the trash and recycle!
