Unit Overview 

Using the school custodian as a resource, learners investigate the issues of litter and trash within the common areas of their school community. They work together to resolve these issues and create a plan for ongoing cleanup, engaging the whole school in the philanthropic efforts.

Service Experience 
Students set up a disposal collection center in the lunchroom and educate all students on how to separate lunch materials (trash, compost, and recycled materials) rather than putting everything in trash cans. Students make posters and other art forms to educate and inspire students throughout the building to reduce litter.
