Our school has made huge strides in being more "green". In addition to recycling paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, and such, we have also been encouraged to conserve energy. We are turning off our lights when leaving the room, shutting down all computers and monintors at the end of the day, unplugging energy zappers when not in use, etc...It has made me think it is really not that hard, it is just a matter of changing one's routine. The kids are easy to train. It is us old dogs that need help. Now, if we can just get them to stop using those AWFUL styrofoam trays at lunch! UGH.
