The Green Team’s Zero Waste Challenge Written by 6th Grader, Abby Ellis

 

This month, the Green Team is encouraging everyone to use reusable water bottles. This is part of the Zero Waste Challenge, which means every month we will try to give up one thing that you would usually throw away. This month the Green Team is encouraging everyone to use reusable water bottles instead of disposable ones.

Some people may not realize that the chemicals in the the plastic water bottles may come off into your water. So, instead of that happening, you can use a reusable water bottle!

A couple of fun facts that you may not know; In the United States, people throw away over 3 billion water bottles each year, and 10 million end up in landfills every day.

As the next generation, we have the obligation to help save the environment. One way to accomplish this is by purchasing a disposable water bottle, if you do not have one already.

On behalf of the Green Team, please help us make sure Spofford is one step closer to saving the world!
