Student leaders from AP Environmental Science, advice the Sierra Student Coalition, Roots and Shoots, dosage the Garden Club, the Songwriters Club and the Art Club teamed up to host a lunch time Earth Day Celebration at Alameda High School.
Students sold hand painted reusable canvas bags, reusable water bottles, and fresh lavender infused lemonade to their peers to support environmental initiatives on campus and in the community.
Live entertainment was provided by the Songwriters Club as they performed original songs themed to the term, “Garbage Man,” to a crowd of students enjoying lunch in the outdoor amphitheatre.
Passersby were asked to record an environmental pledge onto a paper leaf and paste it to a growing cardboard tree. Participants then had the chance to guess the CRV value of a toter full of bottles and cans.
The Earth Day event at Alameda High is one part of an expanding environmental initiative on campus that includes CRV redemption, recycling of paper, and an AP Environmental Science project to reduce waste in the community.
