So, as I walk my new Kindergardener to school each day I notice a lot of litter (pic above is one I found online). I am going to start a project for schools called EarthWalkers. Kids would bring a small garbage bag with them and as they are walking to school they pick up garbage they come across. There would be some sort of points or reward system as incentive. I need to think it through, figure out the details and present it to the school. Hopefully it will catch on and all schools will adopt the program. Any and all ideas/suggestions appreciated. Would like to keep it simple while still re-enforcing the impact it will have on the earth. One problem I foresee is that the kids that ride to school wouldn't be able to participate (reward as class? have those that ride pick up bag of garbage on their own time?). Another is that the kids would have to be able to make it to school on time and not chase down every piece of garbage they see (you know how kids are). I was also thinking that we could have them do this one day per week so as not to overload the school with extra garbage (budget) and then reward classes at the end of month for their efforts. Possibly weigh the garbage to see how much each class picks up? I don't know. Just some thoughts. Anyone?
