Willamette High School is one of 48 schools across the country to receive recognition as a 2014 National Green Ribbon School.
The honor, announced today by the U.S. Department of Education, is for the school’s efforts to improve the health and wellness of its students and staff, reduce environmental impacts, and provide environmental and sustainability education.
WHS recycles more than 2,000 pounds of material every week, uses paper towels that are EPA certified 85 percent post-consumer waste, is part of the city’s Love Food Not Waste composting program, uses more than two dozen large, raised garden beds that serve as skills training for students, and much more.
Willamette representatives will be invited to Washington, D.C. this summer to receive recognition as a National Green Ribbon School.
