Silver Springs - 2011

Team Name: EES (Efficient Energy Savers)

Team Type: Club

Campaign Goal:

The goal was to recycle as many items as possible and to reduce the number of items needing to be recycled.

What did we do?

  • Recycling every 2 weeks
  • Presentation at an assembly
  • Lunch meetings
  • Posters
  • Research

The Best Part

That we recycled more types of products, but had less overall recycling.


  • Introduce the project in the first month of school
  • Create the mascot earlier and present to every class in the school
  • Explain the project at an assembly
  • Create signs for what can go in each recycling bin
  • Make smaller presentations to each class

Did We Reach our Goal?

No. We still have students using the bins incorrectly.

What we are most proud of

  • Fewer items are being recycled inappropriately
  • Classes are re-using items
  • Team became efficient at recycling
  • Compacting bags to have fewer bags being wasted
  • Chose a new name for the club to personalize it for the school

What we are planning to work on next

  • Ensure more regular attendance with meetings
  • Energy
