Schools and sustainability seems like an obvious partnership, but bringing the two together is often harder than it needs to be. Many schools are without a green or sustainability team because they simply lack the volunteer power to get it started and keep it going. To bridge this gap, Create Plenty is piloting a four step approach of Education, Collection, Creation and measurable Outcomes (ECCO) to improve academic achievement through environmental action that leads to measurable results. While helping steer schools toward resources to maintain a green team with volunteer support, we will also save schools money, create a way for students who want to become agents of change for their planet, and build leadership skills.
We’re using crowd-funding not only to raise money, but to demonstrate widespread popular support for schools going green. Contribute to our campaign, and bring attention to the fact that every K-12 school in the 21st century needs to help educate its children on how to address the ecological challenges students will face in their lifetimes. Reducing plastic pollution generated in schools will be a first step, and the rest will follow.
