In case you’re wondering what one school can do in just the span of a few short months, take a good look at the Go Green Initiative’s school of the week, Milltown Middle School in Milltown, NJ. They’ve actually earned the first year award from the Go Green Initiative for their efforts, and they’ve been making a difference by holding recycling assemblies and working to increase their efficiency at recycling plastics, batteries, ink cartridges, paper, plastic, glass and aluminum while working to start an Elmer’s Glue recycling program as well.Of course, if you go to Milltown Middle School you already know that each day begins with a green tip as part of the announcements, and you’ve seen the posters in the hallways that have been created by students to help reinforce the idea as well.
And it’s working too; for with a pool of just 750 students to pull from they were able to put together 144 pairs of old sneakers as part of their efforts with Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program. A simple way for schools everywhere to help ensure old sneakers stay out of the landfills and wind up as something useful like part of a running track instead.
So congrats to our friends in Milltown, and keep up the good work!
