Five Columbus Tustin Middle School students recently participated in the Grades of Green Water Campaign, a semester-long competition encouraging schools to research local water issues and create innovative solutions to conserve and recycle water. The Grades of Green Team created a video to share their research findings, conservation plan and encouraged others to join their water conservation movement. The video outlined a plan to recruit a “Conservation Team” of students to hand-wash lunch tables in order to save over 90 gallons of water per day used to hose them down after lunch. Over the course of a school year, this will save 18,000 gallons of water! Additionally, they proposed using rain barrels to collect rainfall and then use the extra water for the school garden and planter boxes around campus. The team was awarded a $1,000 grand prize for their video submission to use towards the implementation of their proposal. Seen above are members of the Columbus Tustin Grades of Green Team, from left, Tina Castillo, Akil Nafi, Noah Karnowski, Katy Connor and Zion Choi. Don’t be a drip – do your part to save water!
