Eco Kids is a child-led club the Falcons created to take a deeper look into our consumption and ways we can reduce, reuse, and recycle. The club members share their environmental and sustainability goals, complete quarterly yard cleanups, and create several projects.
One of the goals of the Eco Kids is to cut back on paper waste. They created signs to remind the Falcons to use both sides of their paper. Another idea was to write their names on their papers so that they can take them home instead of the recycling bin.
Because the Falcons wanted to cut down on waste, they wanted to make their own paper. Then they had the idea to put seeds in the paper so that the paper can go straight into people’s gardens.
See how our project unfolded:
The Falcons enjoyed delivering the seed paper to people in their community and wondered how the seeds would grow. The response to our environmental gifts were astonishing. The school principal received several phone calls from community members thanking us for the seed paper. We can't wait to see what the Eco Kids come up with next to create positive environmental changes for the Falcons and beyond their program.
