   Last school year the elementary students at Venables Valley learned about recycling and started a bottle refund at their local learning center. They became inspired by the idea of recycling and refunding that they descided to take it to the community. They organized an area for the local community members to drop off their refundable bottles, and they take in the bottles to the local bottle depot. With the refunded money the students planted fruit trees at the community center, and learned about how to care for them. They learned how easy it is to clean up and give back to the earth, one bottle at a time!
