Recycle day completion between my two buildings
Will be supplying and teaching residents, how to create their own self watering pots using 2-liter bottles and an old t-shirt. Will use the time to also discuss why it is important to conserve water due to the drought in California.
I will provide craft supplies, flower seeds, and potting soil so residents can transform their old bottles into makeshift flower pots. Residents will be instructed to bring empty plastic water bottles and I will also bring a few extra. I will also talk to residents about other ways they can "transform" old items into new ones--clothing, used paper, etc.
Come decorate boxes for your floor and bring bottles to see who can collect the most!
A pamphlet of information that will give some information about recycling and keeping our earth nice and green.
Residents play a game where they will be asked to separate recyclable items from trash items. Residents that participate and successfully complete the challenge will receive a sustainable prize! We will discuss the importance of sustainable living.
Residents of Cowell/Stevenson make their own cars out of recyclable materials and bring it to the program for a contest! Then, we watch Grease the movie in the dining hall. The whole night is 60s themed and we will encourage sustainability and recycling
Welcome to 2014 where you no longer have to decide between Paper or Plastic. Luckily for you, we will be giving out reusable grocery bags that you can decorate and make your very own.
To remain sustainable, residents will be given the opportunity to create valentines day gifts or crafts for them selves using recyclables. The crafts that we will be creating will include vases made of water bottles, decorative boxes made of recycled boxes, and personalized valentines day cards decorated with recycled paper. Photos of the crafts are provided below.
