Schools involved in this year’s Trash-Free Lunch Challenge diverted a total of 44,000 bags of trash from landfills, educated 16,000 students about caring for the environment and packed 5,000 trash free lunches every school year.
Grades of Green, a non-profit organization designed to raise environmental awareness among children, announced a variety of awards to recognize schools throughout the state in its Trash-Free Lunch Challenge. Linwood E. Howe earned the District Leadership Award for its efforts to spread environmental awareness beyond its own campus and to other schools throughout the Culver City Unified School District.
“We are truly honored to receive the Grades of Green District Leadership Award,” said Principal Kim Indelicato. “This award reflects the dedication and service of our Green Team members.”
To keep with this momentum, the Grades of Green Representative for Linwood Howe, Sky Williams, is raising money for the school’s Green Team by having an e-waste recycling fundraiser. Please help out by bringing your old cell phones, tablets, and iPods/MP3 players to the office at Linwood Howe (4100 Irving Place) for responsible recycling! The fundraiser will run through the end of April.
Congratulations to everyone at Lin Howe!
