New Salem Green Team sponsors America Recycles Day
At least 123 students collected several hundred aluminum cans, several hundred plastic bottles, stacks of phone books, 189 ink cartridges, 20 small electronics including cell phones, and over 2400 plastic grocery bags. Using the theme “I want to be recycled”, students entered coloring and bookmark contests. It was a day to educate, motivate and encourage students to be aware of ways they can improve our local environment and become involved in caring for our earth.
