Letter to our Community

Dear Community,

We are members of the "Teens Going Green" initiative at Buckman Road. The "Teens Going Green" initiative is a program that the Y2 group (6th grade-12th grade) started in November 2010. We started the program to get our community to recycle. Our initiative also teaches the community about recycling. Our message is that recycling is a good thing to do.

It is important to recycle because it helps our community and the world. Mother nature is very upset with how people treat her. Recycling is something everyone can do to make her smile. It is also important to recycle because not only does it keep our community clean by reducing landfills, but it can help to create more jobs. No one wants to live in a messy dump, so we, the Teens Going Green, stepped up and took charge.

We have had much success with our initiative thus far. Some of our accomplishments include winning a $500 grant for our hard work, getting our community to recycle more, starting a blog site and helping other CPDC sites start their own recycling initiative. Being a part of this community project has helped us become better people. We realize the importance of recycling and taking better care of our community. We hope that you will continue to support our initiative by using your new blue bins to recycle.
