Earth Day

"I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees."

Who speaks for the trees these days? I'd like to think I do, but I still do use a good bit of paper being a first grade teacher. I stress using both sides and recycling, but still. We read today in Scholastic News about a school in Arizona that won an award for being the greenest in the nation. One day, I envision schools where we compost, recycle, grow our own food, stress packing in re-usable bags, and go paper-less as much as possible. It certainly does change the school environment, but I'd say for the better!

Happy Earth Day!
