American High School features a model student led recycling program to divert paper and CRV material from the waste stream. Funds from the recycling program are channeled back into campus beautification efforts including tree planting. Students in science classes regularly participate in activities such as paper making and labs that investigate materials separation techniques used in single stream recycling systems. American High School hosts monthly meetings of FIERCE- FremontIans Enabling Real Change in the Environment- a student group representing each of Fremont's five high schools that work together to plan community events and organize service projects such as the establishment of community gardens.
Students from American High School taught community members how to recycle paper at the City of Fremont’s Earth Day Festival on Saturday, sickness April 24. This hands on activity went far beyond a lesson directing people to deposit paper in the proper bin. Instead, click this lesson involved blenders, vialis 40mg rollers, screens and presses.
Community members pulped paper in a blender to make a slurry, then rolled it flat on screens. Students added seeds to the paper and cut them into shapes from the natural world such as leaves and trees. These recycled paper products can be “planted” merely by laying them on fertile soil and adding water to create a flower garden.
Your worms need a bed to rest thier little heads,
Newspaper does the trick as long as it's not slick
Rip it into Strips
Into Water Grip and Dip
Then Squeeze but not to rough
Unfold and lay down the fluff.
Now put your worms in their home
In the middle of the the compost zone
Next they want to eat
Scraps of vegetables and fruit sweets
Coffee grounds and filters too
will make your worms love you.
A moist blanket to cover them
Of more wet strips is heaven.
And last fluff some dry ones
and your worm bin is nearly done
You need a lid to block the light
and air holes so it's not airtight.
