Project Title
Recycle Showdown
Project Description
We found first of a problem in our communtiy. Over time it became clear that elelmentary school level children have little to no knowledge on what recycling and going green means and is all about. So, we set up a friendly competition at Northside Elementary School. We sent out flyers to all children in each grade and class. Our competition was called the Recycle Showdown. We had children compete by creating sculptures out of recycleable materias, such as cans, bottles, plastic shopping bags, etc. Then, on March 9, 2010 the 34 teams came in and dropped off their magnificent sculptures. We had three volunteer judges come in. Then, we had all of the teams come back where we gave them participation medals, made by hand from recycled bottle caps, and announced winners of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Most Creative, Most Popular(spectators choice), and Team Spirit. The goal was achieved. The goals were to put elemenatry kids in a hands on activity to get them to learn about going green and recycling and to teach them core values of becoming and being part of a team na getting along in that team. The Recycle Showdown was extremely successful.
Earth Day is coming up on April 22. I am trying to get my school involved and I encourage you to do the same. Enjoy!

Pesticides

Pesticides are killing the bees and affecting many other species negatively, yet if we stop them, because of increased monoculture, specific grain pests would ravage the fields and eat everything in sight. Food would not be capable os sustainably being grown. So then, the question becomes, how do we stop the bee deaths and continue the successful farming without pesticides agriculture relies upon?See More

People's Climate March

People's Climate MarchSeptember 21st,I pull on my cap and volunteer shirt, walk to Columbus Circle Subway Station, all while simultaneously yawning. It's 7:30 in the morning. I'm already on duty. As I gaze around, I glimpse passerby in absurd and fascinating costumes. A man or a sun, a man-sun strolls along. Someone with a pointed warlock hat- not really sure what he was supposed to be.People are already here, committed to the act of defying climate change. The day progresses, my arms ache from…See More

CCD of Honey Bees

CCD of Honey BeesColony Collapse Disorder among the Honey Bees is no longer a worry of the past. It is a legitimate concern among environmentalists and researchers. Why are the colonies being lost? This is the ultimate question that must be addressed. If we ignore the increasing death of bees, we may threaten the cultivation of various foods, flowers, jeopardizing the sustenance all creatures depend on. Not only to honey bees make honey, but they pollinate fruits, vegetables, and various…See More
