High School's Environmental Work Highlighted
The 'upcycling' by teacher Tim Zavacki and the entire school recognized by TerraCycle.
Some great work by Hillsborough High School helping the environment is being recognized.
TerraCycle, an "upcycle" company that makes consumer products from pre- and post-consumer materials, has focused one of its Location Spotlight videos on the school. The video, attached to this post, specifically takes a look at how applied technology teacher Tim Zavacki has made the company's brigades a huge part of the school's day-to-day operation.
Zavacki, the staff and students at the high school have had a lot of success with the program. Hillsborough was the winner of the company's Erase Your E-Waste Keyboard and Mouse Brigade. By doing so, the school received brand-new Logitech keyboards and mice that Zavacki was able to distribute throughout the school for teachers and students to use.
In the video above, Zavacki talks about how his wife tipped him off about the company and its programs. The school's environmentally conscious way of looking at purchases and items is detailed in the video.
