Being Green at John Burroughs High is in the bag!

Students at John Burroughs High School will be going Green by creating eco-friendly T-shirt tote bags out of old or new T-shirts. I saw one of these bags at our Burbank READS Committee meeting yesterday and they are pretty cool. A great way to recycle T-shirts into something useful. See the photograph for other examples.

The eco-friendly book bag workshop will be held on Friday, March 6, 2009 in the JBHS library and students will have two opportunities to "bag it", during late start from 8:00-9:00 AM and after school from 3:00-4:00 PM. Just remember to bring a school appropriate T-shirt with you and soon you'll have a new bag for toting around books, groceries and other stuff!
