Meadow Glen Elementary  shoe collection campaign for Keep the Midlands Beautiful this year and some of our GREEN TEAM RECYCLERS

While our team worked hard to promote collection, they were disappointed in only collecting 99 pairs of shoes. I reminded them that:
– that was 198 shoes that didn’t go into the landfill and
– they should focus on how to increase the number for next year. (They decided that next year, month’s in advance, they will begin using  advertising teasers promoting the upcoming shoe drive.)

Cardboard egg cartons worked very well as pea seed starters, when placed into a saucer like container with about 1/8 inch of water. (More water = too soggy, no water= not soft enough to decompose when transplanted placed into soil, so those received pencil poked holes. My best guess is we have planted over 300 pea seeds.peas planted in egg carton pots20160323_114726
