Using their new IXG Green Packs -- reusable water bottle, drink thermos, snack containers, organic cotton tee shirt, reusable shopping bag, bottle brush cleaner and instructional insert -- Fisher Elementary students had the opportunity to experience firsthand how much of an impact these simple habits can have.
The Fisher School students reduced classroom waste by 70 percent in just one day using their IXG Green Pack tools.
Children are the true green keepers of our natural resources and with our support can re-shape how we address monumental environmental problems," said Victoria Waters, founder, IXG Education Foundation.
The IXG Education Foundation plans to leverage the success of the pilot program to extend the Green School Experiment to schools across multiple states this fall and nationwide in 2009.
IXG Education Foundation will provide each Fisher Elementary student and staff member with an IXG Green Pack -- reusable water bottle, drink thermos, bottle brush cleaner, snack containers, organic cotton tee shirt, reusable shopping bag and instructional insert -- to help make it easy for students and their families to achieve the Experiment's goal of reducing school trash by 50 percent.
The Experiment concludes on June 16, at which time IXG Education Foundation will work with school and community officials to measure the success of the program.
