Hardin supports the school champions in various ways:
- She held a training event for them in November last year and will hold another this coming fall to arm Green Champions with information to take back to their schools
- She provided resources to add recycling and climate change to their schools’ curricula
- This April she started a newsletter to push out potential field trip opportunities, ideas for classroom waste reduction, contests to run, free events to go to, etc.
- Hardin partners with organizations like the Earth Charter Indiana, the Indiana Recycling Coalition and Dumpster Drummers to arrange fun and educational events and assemblies
As we move toward making our operations more efficient in the coming years, we’re thankful to have Kristi Hardin and the Green Champions at our schools helping the district, our students and our communities go green!
