Green Team Slide Show (March 9, 2016)

ADVISOR: Ms. Leary,

MEETINGS: Every Thursday morning @ 7:45 AM in the media center


Sustainable Washburn is a consortium of different sustainability efforts at Washburn High School. We represent NHS's Recycling committee, Student Council's water bottle effort, and the Washburn Urban Farm. (Any other sustainability groups should contact us at if they wish to be represented as well). This page is a central location where information about each project and upcoming events can be found. Our hope is that a combined effort will be more effective and that more projects will pop up in the future to join our initiative.

Check out our twitter @SustainableWHS for other updates.

Happy Earth Day!

Washburn's Green Team produced an Earth Day Video (4-minutes). Washburn has been making strides in recycling and reducing use of plastic water bottles. We have installed new water bottle refill stations to encourage re-using water bottles.
