February is an exciting month for the 3Rs School Recycling Program! In addition to the 3Rs school presentations happening at Fern and ʻAikahi Elementary to prepare them for their school-wide classroom recycling program, the 3Rs program is also hitting the road with the HI DOE! In February, the 3Rs program is partnering with the HI DOE School Food Services Branch to teach schools statewide about the benefits of cafeteria waste auditing. We look forward to sharing the data-nerd love to other island schools!
January was a great month for recycling in middle schools! Niu Valley and ʻEwa Makai Middle Schools hosted our two January Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives (AARDs), rescuing a combined 10,000 lbs of resources for reuse and recycling. Join us in February for our next Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives:
February 9, 2019, 9am to 12pm - Salt Lake Elementary School
February 23, 2019, 9am to 12pm - Keoneula Elementary School
