LCM goes green
The Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Student Council has teamed up with the District’s Maintenance and Cafeteria Departments to recycle and Go Green at LCM. The Texas Association of Student Council’s 2008-2009 theme for the year is “Lead the Change and the World Will Follow,” with focus on the Go Green Initiative.
One of the Go Green projects the Student Council undertook was to buy a recycling bin for discarded card board. The bin cost less than a dumpster and through cardboard recycling they are able to eliminate one dumpster, ultimately saving the District money in waste disposal and doing their part to help save the Earth.
At the beginning of the school year, the Student Council distributed Go Green logo mugs to the high school staff, encouraging them to reuse their mugs rather than putting their drinks in Styrofoam cups.
