Hamilton International Middle School, Seattle • Hi Darrel, That sounds brillant! I cant wait to share ideas with your school. Last week our local Education Officer visited our geography club and we made wallets and purses from empty cartons. They were amazing and the students loved the final product. There is a man in our local market who decorates and sells them. Our committee is linked with our geography club and students age from 11-18. We just finished running our 2011 elections and I will get a group photograph organised this week and e-mail you a picture of all our lovely faces. lol Many thanks Roisin Subject: RE: [Possible SPAM] Litter Project Date: Fri, 14 Oct 2011 18:06:05 -0700 From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Hi Roisin, That would be wonderful. Our plan is to begin the Litter Less Campaign with our 7th grade. The idea floated with colleagues - 7th grade educators - is to collect empty juice pouches the brand is Caprisun) which normally end up in the landfill. We intend to sew the pouches into reusable containers - e.g., pencil case, snack bag, etc. We are planning to kick off our campaign next week with a photo of the adults and pupil members of the committee.

Our Eco Club at present are working towards their Eco-Schools Green flag Award and have signed up to a Litter Less Campaign. Part of our criteria is to link up with another school and correspond with them to either do a similar project or just work together to raise awareness of Litter. We intend to raise awareness of Litter in school and carryout a litter pick up. The students are making posters etc and I could forward you all our ideas, posters etc and hopefully tackle similar issues together. I was just wondering if you would like to be our linked school? Please let me know. My e-mail address is email@example.com Many Thanks • Hi Roisin, We too have taken a Litterless Campaign committee photo and started collecting and preparing juice pouches for making reusable items. A parent and community group have suggested we get involved with a local effort to urge families to decrease the size of their trash container at home. This would be in conjunction with families recycling more instead of dumping more into trash, alleviating the effect on landfills.

We recently met to organise our litter pick event which will be held on Thursday 8th December. The committee are busy at the moment researching the issues of litter and hope to interview our Principal next week. They have created a powerpoint presentation which will be displayed on our school TV, poems about litter for our display board & a questionaire to ask students before and after the campaign to use as an evaluation of their hard work. We are also launching our annual Christmas Card Recycling Campaign at the moment where students and families bring in old christmas cards (after christmas) to enter a competition to win X factor tickets. This is a brillant way to get the community involved and the cards are donated to the Woodland trust who uses them to get money to plant trees. What a brillant cause! It has been hard work getting the committee all together for their group photograph but successfully it has now been taken and I will upload it onto the Litter Less Project website tomorrow. Look forward to hearing from you.
