Recycle Team

The mission of the team is to educate their peers and the staff about taking care of our planet and encourage everyone to join them in their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.  It is important to take care of the Earth God has given us so that it will be a beautiful place, not only for all of us but for generations to come.  Most importantly, try to reduce the consumption of non natural materials - especially plastic!!  Did you know that plastic bottles take approximately 450 years to decompose in a landfill?

 Below are things you can do to help our earth:

  • Use a reusable water bottle instead of throwing out plastic ones.  

  • Pay attention to packaging in the grocery stores, maybe you can look for items that have less packaging.

  • Instead of throwing out clothes or items in your house, would someone else want them?

  • After you have tried to reduce and reuse, then please Recycle what is left when possible.

  • Refuse plastic whenever possible.  

  • Refuse plastic straws- Buy reusable straws so you don’t use plastic ones.  Do you need that plastic lid?

  • When you get coffee, bring your own travel mug - many places are happy to use these.  

  • Refuse plastic bags - buy reusable ones or don’t take a plastic bag if you only have one or two items.
