Wednesday Shout-Outs {Earth Day Projects & Inspiration}

It's time for our (mostly) weekly shout-outs.

Each Wednesday we feature individuals and groups who are working hard to fight climate change and save polar bears. We celebrate people determined to help change the world through one action at a time.

This week we are focusing on one person's Earth Day projects. Stephanie Kappel is one of our Climate Alliance graduates who has taken the goal of helping polar bears to heart. 

She wrote, "This Earth Day project was a big hit in the world of second graders! Plastic milk jugs can be made into sandwich boxes. Kids at our school were asked to share a project that would help the earth. From compost bins to recycling projects, the kids worked on all sorts of projects.

"Our son decided to make his own sandwich boxes out of milk jugs. When asked by his teacher if the project was a reduce, reuse or recycle project, he said "all three!" By reusing the milk jugs to make sandwich boxes, he's reducing the waste of plastic baggies or foil. The best part is that the boxes can be recycled when they are worn out. It's a win-win-win for Mother Nature.

"We used the website spoonful.com to help make the lunch boxes, but you can find directions on many different sites. Enjoy!"

There are so many little things we can do to make a big difference. Congratulations to Stephanie for inspiring us all.
