Save Million Trees, Inc.
June 26, 2011

I'm a preschool teacher, and before Save Million Trees, Inc. stepped in, we had no recycling programs in place. Now, after Save Million Trees made sure every classroom has recycling bins and got us all excited about recycling, you could not stop our four-year olds from recycling! Paper plates, plastic forks, leftover materials from arts and crafts....kids just cannot wait to get them in the bins! The bins are great - they are different colors for different items, but they also have pictures of items that go in them - making it extremely easy for children to choose. It's almost funny how, when one forgets to recycle and tries to place something in the trash, the other children step in and make sure every plastic for goes where it needs to. Many parents have told us that their children got the whole family recyling! Wonderful program! I signed up for their Stop Junk Mail as well, and my mailbox has 1/10 of the stuff that used to be there! I recommend warmly! This program works!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Oh, yes I have! I see every day how enthusiastic my kids are about recycling, and how they ponder if something can be recycled or not! Wonderful program!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We waited approximately 2 months for our bins and materials, I guess due to so many schools listing to get them. If I could make changes, I would make the process faster - but I guess they do their best with the funding they have. Great program, all in all!

A parent of one of our students had heard of them and suggested we sign up and start recycling. She, like many parents, likes our preschool to be green

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Seeing the effect in our school has really made me pay attention to recycling at home as well. I have to admit that I did not recycle much, but after reading materials and talking with the people with Save Million Trees I now realize that it matters what one individual does.
