    Tri 1 Project:
    Crayola ColorCycle
    Students are organizing a marker collection throughout the school. Markers (any brand) will be shipped to Crayola for recycling. If you are involved in another school within Westfield Washington Schools and would like to join us in our program, or start your own let us know. Below is a link to the Crayola colorcyle program.

    Tri 2 Project:
    Upcycled T-Shirt Totes
    Do you have more plastic bags than you know what to do with? Do you also have a growning T-Shirt collection? We can help with both problems in with one solution. over the summer we partnered with Westfield Green in making Totes to distribute at the Farmer's Market over the summer. These Totes are made from old t-shirts. If you are interested in making totes feel free to join us, or check out the link below.

    Tri 3 Project:
    Locker Clean Out Recycling
    Admit it, when you get to the end of the year you find that your locker is jam packed with all the papers you did not know what to do with during the school year. Then we all dump them in the trash bags at the end of the year. What if you had an option to get those paper headed to a new life, as a different piece of paper? What if it was as simple as putting that paper in a different colored bag on Locker Clean out day?
    Last year 20 lbs of paper was diverted from the trash into the recycling path. We are working to increase that number this year.
