Our Facebook Live Webinar highlighting our Leftover School Supplies Activity was one of our best yet! We let everyone know about the importance of reusing school supplies, gave eye-opening stats on landfill waste, and shared our top five tips on implementing the activity.
Did you know that over 2 billion pencils are used each year, which requires wood from almost 100,000 trees! This statistic is crazy!!! Statistics like this demonstrate just how important reusing your school supplies really is. And, the Leftover School Supplies Activity is fun, quick, and easy to implement.
Additionally, any school that takes on the Leftover School Supplies Activity and emails their Grades of Green Advisor the number of bags of leftover school supplies they collected will get Grades of Green T-Shirts for their Green Team leader!
Grades of Green is excited to host its first ever webinar on Facebook Live about improving air quality through establishing a No Idle Zone! Schools across the country are invited to join us on February 22nd as we explain the dangers of toxic car emissions and how students, parents, teachers and volunteers can take action to spread awareness about air pollution and improve their school environment. The Webinar is a great way to help schools implement Grades of Green’s No Idle Zone Activity, with step-by-step instructions to encourage drivers to turn off car engines as they wait at school drop-off and pick-up areas. According to Hamilton County Environmental Services and Air Watch Northwest, 3 pounds of pollution per month is put into the air for just one vehicle drop-off and pick-up at a school. Reducing idling on school campuses greatly reduces emissions, which also shrinks the school’s carbon footprint and helps clear the air our children breathe. Through the interactive webinar, participants will be able to post comments in real time on Facebook and ask Grades of Green experts questions as we go, creating a dialogue that will give everyone the tools that they need to jumpstart the Activity. We are excited to offer the first 20 schools that join the webinar and take on the No Idle Zone Activity a FREE banner that students can display in front of their schools to remind drivers to turn off their engines
