Post Party Report: We Diverted 10 Bags Worth of Recyclable & Reusable Materials From the Landfill!
The greening results, by the numbers:
Total from Blue Bin (plastic/metal/cartons/juice boxes): @ 3 bags
Total from Green Bin (paper/cardboard): @4 bags
Total from Brown Bin (compost/organics): @4 bags
Total from Grey Landfill Bin (trash/non-recyclables): @3-4 bags
This includes the recycling stations set up in the gym near the exit as well as the kitchen station. Some 18+ students collected and sorted other people’s leave behinds to earn a token prize, and we
sold about $111. worth of re-usable PS 372 cups. It was a great event all around, made even sweeter by the fact that so many of the decorations (confetti) were recyclable or reusable. Considering this was a heavily attended event that spanned almost four hours, its really impressive that we sent as much organic material to be re-integrated into the soil system as we sent trash to the landfill/incinerator! Thank you! –-The Green Team
