The school year may be coming to an end, but the Environmental Club is gearing up a productive summer. In addition to their Community Garden plots, they are in the process of having a textile recycling bin added to campus. With the help of the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO), Grant could have a bin placed near the fieldhouse as early as mid-May.
With limited landfill capacities and a mission to deter materials from them, we must all look for alternative ways to divert gently used items. This full-circle program allows community members to discard of their used clothing without polluting the environment and gives them the opportunity to support environmental education/outreach. Keep an eye out for more information on our textile bin and help us create a better tomorrow for all!
