Through our school's innovative recycling program, students are learning how their choices affect the environment.
It takes about 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose. That means if a plastic bottle is placed in the landfill today, it will take approximately 4.5 centuries or about 164,250 days to breakdown. In other words, that same water bottle will be around until 2466! Now that's something worth investigating!
River Ridge Academy students did just that, creating a public awareness campaign to encourage students to recycle plastic bottles AND start using reusable drinking containers.
Students in the 600 Hallway collected and measured the amount of paper recycling.
