How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
We are only about 4 weeks into operation. Our environmental club meets every week or every other week, from 3:00 - 3:30 or 3-5:00 to distribute and or collect recyclable materials. We also prepare recycle awareness posters, sponsor educational events, school wide broadcast of "Story of Stuff", movie hour of "Inconvenient Truth. For membership into our club, we prioritized with students with special needs (physically, academically, and behaviorally challenged) then mainstreamed students.
In two weeks we have collected 1 1/2 dumpsters full of recyclable materials. We managed to have 50 boxes donated from U-Haul, assembled 50 boxes, marked them for recycling and distributed them to each classroom. We had a grocery shopping cart donated from Price Chopper, so that are physically handicap students could help with recyclable paper collection.
