This year, the students are working on reducing the amount of plastic and packaging our school uses. To do this, they are showing alternatives to buying plastic toothbrushes, bottles, bags, and straws etc. The students are having fun making some products themselves, such as dishwasher tabs, all purpose cleaners, granola bars, pudding and more, in the hopes of encouraging others to reduce packaging and make things at home. They give up their lunch hours to educate themselves and others on how to reduce the amount of plastic used.There will be a draw for some of the products purchased and made, on Earth Day.
