Pacific Cascade Green Team Named 2016 Earth Heroes for Waste Reduction and Recycling

Posted by User Not Found on 11 May, 2016

Congratulations to the Pacific Cascade Middle School (PCMS) Green Team and their advisors Courtney Peterson and Joanne Donovan for being named one of the 2016 King County Earth Heroes for Waste Reduction and Recycling. The PCMS Green Team has helped students, teachers, and the custodial staff to reduce lunch waste and increase recycling and composting. Throughout the year, the team has promoted the use of a share table to reduce the amount of wasted food, made video announcements to encourage participation in waste-free Wednesdays, and recognized weekly super recyclers. Thanks to their efforts, the school has increased their lunch room recycling rate by 70 percent.

As part of the King County Earth Heroes program, school Green Teams are inspiring others to create their own projects that conserve resources, protect the environment, and educate about simple, everyday actions that can contribute to a healthier planet.
