Natural Bridge Elementary

Miami, Florida

Recycling Education and Practice
Budget: $358

Natural Bridge Elementary is a pre-K through 5 school with 624 students, ages 4- 12. Natural Bridge Elementary has never attempted to recycle before so our challenge lies in getting our students acclimated to placing all plastic and paper in the recycling container instead of the garbage can.

Our Green Plan: Empowering our youth by raising their level of awareness of the environment and how small actions can have a powerful impact. We need plastic, recycling bins in all key areas of the school to make recycling more inclusive for our entire school. We want to tie in the recycling opportunity to our school garden that we are going to start in January through CNI/The Education Fund. We want to expose our students to how the environment provides for us, but we need to do our part as well. The desired outcome will be a cleaner school, as well as socially and environmentally conscious students who will then go home and educate their own families on how to live more responsibly.
