BLOGGER CHALLENGE FIRST PLACE WINNER: Three things we should do at my school

This Spring, OnAir held its first ever Blogger Challenge! We asked you to submit blogs answering this simple question: What rule would make your school greener? At long last, here is our FIRST PLACE WINNER! This post is from Emanuella at South Gwinnett High School. Congratulations, Emanuella!

 

Three things that my school should do:

First thing is, stop littering on the streets, on the ground, in classrooms, EVERYWHERE. Us as students should pick up trash that lazy people don’t put away. Most students may not want to pick up trash,
they should tell other students to stop throwing away stuff on the floor.

Second thing is, us students should stop taking cars or buses to school.
If your house is not that far from school, you should walk or take a bike.
Most students like taking a bus, but students should only take a bus if they live far away.

Third thing is, students should recycle, put things away in the recycling bin, or reuse cups that are not plastic or stop using PLASTIC items and start using reusable things.

Most students should do these things to help my school

BLOGGER CHALLENGE SECOND PLACE WINNER: Greener Gwinnett

Currently here at SOUTH GWINNETT things could be better for our school community.

In modern-day world people litter and create more air pollution. Schools have more littering and air pollution daily each and everyday. Have you ever thought about a school bus? Think about how much exhaust come from the exhaust pipes. We should join together and ask them to shut down their engines.

Look around your school building and think about how much trash is on the floor. Not only is it inside, it ends up outside and before you know it, it ends up in our streams. However this creates water pollution and puts the life of animals in danger.

HOW??…How can we bring this to an end? Well I say we should recycle more and focus on not littering. So therefore locally step in and maybe have your bus drivers shut down their engine. Many things such as: plastic bottles, paper, cans and even plastic. You could even become one of our local gardeners.

Help make our community to be greener. Tell mom dad you wanna grow a garden. Keep a recycle bin on a regular basis. We are the future, so let’s make our earth and community a thousand times greener.

Less Car More Go

There are plenty of reasons to switch out a car for a cargo bike. Just ask Liz Canning, the filmmaker of “Less Car More Go”, a documentary on the history and future of the cargo bike movement. But this isn’t just any documentary. This one has 100 co-directors. Yeah you read that right. 100 cargo-cyclists collaborated by taking videos of how cargo bikes changed their lives.
