School: Port Guichon Elementary

Votes Received: 38

We have successfully reduced our school garbage by 50%in one year by composting, recycling and encouraging reuseable lunch containers. We have 2 classes raising red wigglers. We have reduced our electricity use by using Real Time Meters to monitor energy consumption and by having "lights out" at lunch and whenever possible. Our Gr 2/3 class are also raising Coho as an environmental stewardship initiative.We are planning to work with D. Jones from C.C. Streamkeeper to create a rain garden and to work with Delta Muncipality in cleaning up the ditch close to our school ground.
