Earth Sustainability

The mission of the BSCO Earth Sustainability Team is to create a safer, healthier school environment by promoting sustainable practices and healthy nutrition. Volunteers accomplish this through organizing school wide events such as International Walk to School Day in October, Halloween Candy Take Back in November, Catalog Canceling Challenge in February, Earth Week in April, and the Walk and Bike to School Challenge in May.  Additionally, Earth Sustainability volunteers maintain Bonny Slope's Oregon Green School certification and work with other BSCO committees to encourage sustainable practices such as waste-reduction, use of earth-friendly paper ware, and healthier food options. At Bonny Slope, we aim to inspire a greater awareness of our relationship with, and impact on, the Earth for our students, families and staff.
