Fifth graders from The Evergreen School,
Mayor Will Hall, and Evergreen Sustainability
Coordinator Janet Charnley at Shoreline City Council

Four fifth-grade students from The Evergreen School, accompanied by Sustainability Coordinator Janet Charnley, attended the Shoreline City Council meeting on Monday night to receive an America Recycles Day proclamation recognizing the school.

Will Hall, Mayor of Shoreline, read the proclamation and presented it to the students in recognition of Evergreen's efforts towards sustainability in recent years.

[From the proclamation:]

The proclamation recognizes November 15, 2018, as America Recycles Day in the City of Shoreline, calling on residents and businesses to celebrate this 21st anniversary of America Recycles Day throughout the month, and noting the significant contribution that everyone in our community contributes to conserve resources and protect our environment by reducing waste, recycling and reusing materials, and purchasing items made from recycled materials.

The Evergreen School is one example of the success that students and staff can achieve by improving recycling and reducing waste at their school. They have an outstanding environmental record of participating in the King County Green schools program since 2002 and achieved Platinum Level, the Washington Green Schools' highest certification. They also participated in Recology’s Zero Waste program in 2018, achieving a recycling rate of 58 percent, and have reduced garbage volume by 50 percent.
