Congratulations to our participating Green Schools and thanks to all of our members who donated points to help make their green projects a reality!
HOW THE GREEN SCHOOLS PROGRAM WORKS
Build a greener school in 4 easy steps
MAKE A PLANEach school* submits an application for a proposal with a budget up to $2,500. All elementary and secondary schools located in communities participating in our recycling rewards program are eligible.
PROMOTE PROJECTSAny Recyclebank member can donate his or her points. Students and teachers are encouraged to tell family and friends to help fund their projects (and to register if they’re not members).
COLLECT DONATIONSWe select the Top 50 proposals and post them to our site, where Recyclebank members can donate their points online. We award $1 for every 250 points*.
