The One Bottle One Dream district kickoff party was held at McKitrick Elementary on November 7th 2011. The amazing PTA board members purchased a class set of books, “When Will We Be Recycled, Momma?” for all 3rd and 4th grade teachers! You can watch the video highlights here http://www.redlasso.com/entertainment/school-teaches-kids-recycling/
Joining One Bottle One Dream was Worm’s Way, a local organic gardening supply store, who donated composting kits and will provide a matching program for schools to complete their gardening and science projects.
Stephanie Armenia’s goal, through sponsorship, is to gift teachers a class set of books with a Curriculum Activity Guide that corresponds to the Sunshine State Standards. Teachers then temporarily gift one book per student to use throughout the year, creating ownership and driving home the important message that their choices matter. Students are then allowed to take the book home and share the story with family members to promote a green household. Books need to be returned to school and will be regifted to students next year to keep this important conversation alive between teachers, students, and parents.

Jack and Juju give a big shout-out to, “Keep Dorchester County Beautiful” in South Carolina for purchasing “When Will We Be Recycled, Momma?” to gift to students visiting their facility and during educational school visits. They have also shared a unique way to recycle their plastic bottle caps into works of art. As November brings National Recycling Week into focus we hope other states will join Florida, New York, and South Carolina to help kids take the vow to keep plastic out of our landfills.

William Ray says, “Total Recycling” is a big vision. This means recycling 100 percent of our waste and not wasting anything. Check out the Ray’s website for more information at www.fdsdisposalinc.com

What a terrific day! The YMCA held another GIVE Camp and One Bottle One Dream was invited. Campers took the recycling vow and talked about how getting involved can make a positive change in their community. The Campers all received books and that makes 252 campers to date that have vowed to keep Jack’s dream alive! Thank you to Sarah Morris for her continued passion in helping to raise awareness! Thank you to Fox News and Sustany for coming out and showing your support!
