5th grade is running a PAPER RECYCLING program throughout the school year. Every class is asked to recycle their paper and bring from home paper recycling products such as cereal boxes, magazines, etc. After doing research on the importance of conserving our Natural Resources and helping to take care of our planet earth. We are very excited to learn how much we can contribute to this cause. This program is student run and it is the children who are collecting, advertising and educating the other students about the importance of RECYCLING.
***Did you know that if everyone in the U.S.A. recycled just 1/10th of their newsprint we would save 25 million trees a year!!!
***Every Sunday almost 90% of the newspapers in the USA are thrown into the garbage. That’s equal to 500,000 trees ending up in a landfill!!!
