Earth Week is April 18-22. To celebrate and make our planet a little better, BEST is rolling out a special recycling program in conjunction with Terracycle, a company that recycles things we normally think of as "trash."
Look for the specially marked boxes near your classroom and in the cafeteria to recycle:
- ANY foil lined energy, granola and protein bar wrappers. No need to clean!
- ANY aluminum and plastic drink pouches. No need to remove straws or clean!
These can be upcycled into cool stuff like bags, dresses and more. The Green Team will collect the boxes after Earth Week and the grade with the most wrappers and drink pouches recycled will be recognized in May.
