The HH Green Team Noticed a problem with non-recyclable items in the Recycling Bin. The students decided to make a Google Slide to share with the school to help reteach what goes in the recycling bin. The first slide was created by the Green Team Sponsor Ms. De Biasio and the rest was done by the students. We love to see students take initiative to make a change. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1HVa94KQd9w7ps8TdaEylve9AXOX3EtDaFJVYKyYFbI4/edit?usp=gmail_thread&ts=620e5ad7
