Go Green Initiative

 Go Green Initiative 

 

Margaret Willis is committed to protecting the health and welfare of children. We also believe in the value of environmental stewardship. Accordingly, we are pleased to announce our adoption this year of the Go “Green” Initiative, a comprehensive environmental program that teaches earth-friendly behaviors and helps us evaluate the environmental impact of every activity on campus.

The Go “Green” Initiative is a partnership involving students, teachers, administrators, custodians and parents that aligns itself with existing curriculum without detracting from state mandated standards. Through practical activities such as recycling, energy conservation and reducing waste, the program encourages environmentally-responsible behavior inside and outside of the classroom.

Margaret Willis joins a growing number of schools across the U.S. and around the world that have adopted “Green” practices. This program has been endorsed by the Cumberland County School Board and Sustainable Sandhills, a non-profit agency working to raise environmental awareness. 

As our Go Green Initiative program takes shape on our campus, we look forward to sharing our progress. Throughout the school year, we invite your suggestions and welcome volunteers to be part of this exciting educational opportunity. 

Go-Green Tips:

  • Recycle when possible
  • Turn off Electronics not in use
  • Reuse empty containers
  • Do not pour grease down the sink
  • Take shorter showers
  • Ride a bike or walk instead of driving
  • Carpool
