We Have a Keynote Speaker!

Alexandra Campbell has accepted our invitation to speak at the School CLUB Awards Luncheon on May 23.  Here’s Allie’s story in her own words:

Alexandra Campbell

Alexandra Campbell

“Growing up in Montessori schools, I spent a lot of time outside—at recess, during lessons, on school trips, and after school. This instilled in me a passion for the outdoors which grew into the desire to protect and give back.

I am currently a senior at Hollis Brookline High School. Last fall, I collaborated with school staff to create the “Green Group” (a student environmental club) and helped to initiate a school wide recycling program. Up until last year, HBHS was not recycling at all, so this was a very exciting step for our community.

 

As an elective course this year, I am working on an independent study I am calling “Society and the Environment”. I am currently collaborating with the Northeast Resource Recovery Association and a local director of waste management to create a plastic film recycling program for my town, Hollis, New Hampshire. My hope is to raise awareness regarding the issue of plastic film waste, make recycling plastic film practical for Hollis residents, and to ultimately establish a permanent program that will divert significant quantities of plastic film waste from landfills. In addition, I started a blog (www.deepgreenblog.com) with the aim of inspiring and empowering others to make more sustainable choices in their everyday lives, as well as record and publicize the progress of the plastic film recycling program.”

We hope you can join us at the Conference to hear Allie’s inspirational story!
