"ADOPT-A-BUSINESS"

A Long Beach School District Recycling OutreachProgram

 

"Empoweringour youth to become environmental leaders in our community one recycling bin ata time"

 

 

Dear Parents/Teachers/Staff/Administration:                         

 

Beginning this Winter, classroomsthroughout Long Beach will be partnering with the Long Beach Business Communityto encourage recycling as a daily practice.

 

WHAT: The "Adopt-a-Bin" program will pair aclassroom with a Long Beach business to support, fundraising and sponsoring the$20 cost of a recycling bin to be placed on site at that business. Studentswill also craft handmade signage for their chosen business and present both totheir adopted business. Representatives from the class will make regular visitsto the business to monitor the recycling efforts and each business will begraded by the students on their recycling efforts. We hope that classroom curriculumconnections will be made on the subjects of recycling and the environment, aswell as through the bin fundraising and the community outreach.


WHY: This program was conceived to applaud existing recycling practices andalso encourage the entire business community to do their part. While itis New York State Law that we all recycle, compliance isn't consistent. We allwant to live in a litter-free City and patronize businesses that care for theenvironment and the future as much as we do. Our children see us recycling athome, and now we need their help to promote the proper disposable of trasheverywhere.  We believe that taking apart in their community will increase self-esteem and pride and that thisprogram will enhance community-business relations.

 

WHEN: You will be receiving more information and take-home flyers in thecoming weeks.  The program will beginsoon and run through the end of the ‘17-‘18 school year.
