June NEWS

Congratulations Rosa Parks!

 

We did it again! Despite having a year of constant changes, one thing was always the same, the interest of our students to learn more and become great leaders. Even though we did not have in-person lessons most of our year, the Green Team Committee worked hard to bring out ideas to share with our students and we had a great Earth Week with lots of student participation! We are a King County Green School Level 1 and one more year, the KCGS has recognized our efforts to reduce waste, take care of our community and look for ways to make our everyday life more sustainable. Thank you and congratulations to all!

Summer Green Tips on Water Conservation:

 

  • Brush your teeth without the water on. You can save up to three gallons of water per day if you simply turn the water off as you brush your teeth.
  • Shorten your showers. Many people take much longer showers than necessary. Shorten your showers and you will be able to save about 5 gallons per minute
  • Put a plastic water bottle in the toilet tank. If you take a plastic bottle, put a few pebbles or rocks in it, fill it with water, and then place it in the back of your toilet, you can save up to 10 gallons of water per day. By placing the bottle in the toilet tank, less water is needed to fill the tank and therefore less water is being flushed.  Experiment to see if a 1 or 2 liter bottle fits better and be sure it is not touching the working parts of the toilet.

 

And always remember: “Less Paper = More Nature”, and “Waste has potential to become life!”

 

Have a great summer Green Pumas!!!!
