San Benito High School takes advantage of the California Resource Recovery Association K-12 Technical Council mini grants! Read their post below to see how they are using these funds to reduce campus waste...

San Benito High School Environmental Science and Biology teacher Ryan Shorey, who is also an advisor with the campus Environmental Club, recently was one of 18 teachers around the state awarded a $100 mini-grant from the California Resource Recovery Association’s K-12 Technical Council.
Shorey, whose application was selected from among 231 entries, said the funds will be used as “starter money” to help purchase reusable trays for the campus cafeteria -- replacing the use of paper plates for food distribution.
“While the reusable trays are one aspect of our overall goal, food waste reduction is another part of the larger plan,” he said. “The reusable trays simply play into that.”
Earlier in 2019, with encouragement from the Environmental Club, the San Benito High School Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to end the use of styrofoam foodware on campus.
The cafeteria and all campus food service operations now use eco-friendly paper goods for all food and beverages served to students. Those heavyweight paper goods are both renewable and compostable.

These faces say it all! They are so excited to be a part of the efforts of our community, learning, engaging, and sharing!

We at SBDA are now officially Green Business Certified! ✅ We were already complying with most of the required measures and only needed to change a few things in the way we were doing things, which were awesome improvements to our community space, physical and financial sides of business, and promoting awareness and educating throughout the process! We want the rest of our community to learn and implement such measures as well, if you’re not already doing a lot of these “green” things... just to name a few:
• composting and recycling ♻️🍌🍊📚
• electricity reduction 💡 (including motion sensor lights and signage as reminders)
• low-flow water 💦 🚿 nozzles for water conservation
• recycled and recycling products 🧻 📓
• environmentally friendly cleaning products 🧼 and office materials 🖨 📝
• going digital 💻 📱instead of using paper 📝 📒
• creating awareness of and reducing energy usage and carbon footprint 👣💨 🗑

Want to get Green Business Certified? Ask us how! We would be happy to educate and encourage! 💚 🤝 ♻️

That same year the San Benito County Opioid Task Force was established. The Opioid Task Force is a community coalition that has been working to educate the community on medication safety, decreasing opioid overdoses and decreasing overdose deaths.

Happy Easter, San Benito County! Unfortunately plastic eggs used for egg hunts are not recycable. They go in the trash. Try an alternative or save them to use again next year!

Have fun and remember... reduce, reuse and recycle! ♻️🌍

𝑯𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒚 𝑬𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒓 💐
An Easter 🐣 egg hunt with colorful plastic eggs 🥚 is a spring tradition, but you may want to consider an eco-friendly update this year. Plastic eggs are not #recyclable ♻️ , and some have been shown to contain lead paint and the harmful chemical BPA.
