(4/20/06) EPA is teaming with Kingsview Middle School in Germantown, Md., for its second annual "Make a Difference Day." The campaign educates and encourages students to conserve natural resources by reducing, reusing and recycling waste.
Activities at the school include planting 150 trees, creating art from trash, and holding a waste-free lunch. EPA is holding the waste-free lunch as a pilot project to show how students can reduce, reuse and recycle at lunch. Through these and other activities, students, teachers, administrators, and community volunteers learn how they can make a difference in the environment.
