Any event you host in November that provides education and encourages participation in recycling and waste reduction can be registered along with hundreds of other events across the country at www.AmericaRecyclesDay.org. Show your school why recycling is important! Events can be as simple as a school pledge drive or as elaborate as a waste sort or recycling collection. There are more ideas and resources on the ARD website.
One event that would be easy to organize is a “caught green handed” campaign: choose a day or week in November during which your club or group will award students (and teachers and staff) caught in the act of recycling. I will be ordering “I Recycle” pins and recycled tire bookmarks that could be given out as the reward. If you’d like a share of these materials to hand out at your school, let me know ASAP (October 30th latest) so that I can get materials to you before November 15th!
If you need additional help with any recycling and waste reduction efforts, please contact me!
