Use the following distribution process to hand out Green Packs at your school:
IXG Green Pack Distribution Process Please designate a place for Green Packs to be assembled by the students and staff. We recommend that only a few classes assemble their Green Packs at one time, with students filing in a single line. Place the t-shirts in stacks by youth and adult sizes on a table. The rest of the items can be left in the boxes they arrived in. Start with the reusable bags on the left, t-shirts next, water bottles, containers and then inserts.
Please note that snack containers come packed in sets of five. They need to be unpacked in order for the students to select one of each. Students can easily do this with the supervision of an adult.
Each student will first select a reusable bag, and then fill it with: (1) water bottle, (2) snack containers (1 small & 1 large), (1) I Live Green t-shirt in their size. They are now ready for the Waste-Free Snacks Challenge during National Green Week!
About National Green Week
The goal of this nationwide event is to launch sustainability focused lessons, activiites and eco-challenges to be utilized during this week and for the remainder of the school year. In order to maximize waste reduction at schools across the nation GEF is urging schools to participate in the Waste-Free Snacks Challenge (if appropriate for your school, we understand that many schools offer free snacks to under-served children in which case this would not apply). However, GEF encourages the educators to take part in sustainabilty lessons or to participate in other GEF Eco-Challenges such as the Green Energy Challenge. Thank you for your support of sustainability education!
