Riverside Elementary School in Albert Bridge, Nova Scotia purchased a water bottle refill station. The machine counts the amount of water bottles prevented through the use of reusable bottles. Using this station reduces the use of single-use bottles by 1,500 water bottles per month!
Eliot River Elementary School in Cornwall, P.E.I. installed six solar panels that can power two classrooms (left) and installed new LED lighting in the school lobby (right).
O' Leary Elementary School installed a 'Buddy Bench' on its school yard, which is made from 97% recycled materials! This spring, the school also plans on planting trees around the bench for shade.
