Recycling rascals presentation final

  1. 1. Mission Statement We are college students who are on a mission to spread the word about recycling throughout Kempton Elementary and the New Bedford community. As the Recycling Rascals, we are here to encourage “Kempton’s little rascals” how to properly recycle, reuse, and reduce paper products. We are eager to make recycling enjoyable and easy to apply to their everyday lives.
  2. 2. Our Goals To increase the awareness of recycling which will be measured by how many times the recycling bins have to get emptied per month To get the community involved by getting at least 1 press release in a local newspaper about the efforts we are making at the Kempton school We would like to feel confidant explaining to other people which products are able to be recycled We hope to educate not only the students but also their guardians and faculty to recycle when at home not just in the school To bring all of our skills together and work as one team to complete our project and goals which will result in a good grade
