Recycle Bank Green School Grant!
Good tidings in the new year: Penn Charter was selected as a Recycle Bank Green School grant recipient again this year! (You may remember that last year we earned $2400 toward a grant for trash/recycling bins.) This year, we're raising money towards purchasing a high-end reusable Penn Charter water bottle for every student and employee. This will support our end goal of phasing out single-use bottles on campus in the near future.
It's the same deal as last year: we earn our own grant money by donating Recycle Bank points to our project. Recycle Bank's mission is to increase recycling efforts in Philadelphia, raise awareness about waste and recycling issues, and ultimately help reduce the amount we all put into a landfill.
If you’re not already a member, here’s how the program works:
- Sign up at Recyclebank.com
- Earn points on their site—it’s pretty easy and the things you learn about are really useful.
- Donate your points to our school. We’ll get $1 for every 250 points we raise. You can find our school at Recyclebank.com/greenschools.
