Working with Schools

Talking with children about how their actions and choices have an impact on the world around them, teaches them about the integral role they can play in making their schools, communities, and planet more sustainable and healthy.

Bags for 2nd gradersresize.jpg

Every year the Office of Sustainability teams up with ecomaine to visit all 2nd grade classes of the South Portland School Department to talk about waste reduction, recycling and the new reusable bag and polystyrene ordinances. Each 2nd grader receives a reusable bag to take home with an activity sheet, magnet and recycled newspaper pencil.
