Happy Earth Day from NDA’s Environmental Club!
The Environmental Club at Notre Dame Academy oversees the school’s recycling of aluminum cans and paper, and plans activities to help promote environmental awareness on campus. The eco-friendly club has had a number of successes this year.
First, they have entered their second year of single stream recycling through Rumpke. They can recycle all paper, aluminum, steel, glass, and plastic that is used at NDA. The club has made great strides in getting more materials recycled by having a dedicated group of students recycle every Friday after school.
Last spring the club launched a composting program for the Sisters of Notre Dame on the fourth floor of NDA’s school building. This Earth Day they will triple NDA’s composting capacity. “This will allow all vegetable waste from the fourth floor to be composted and used in Sr. Mary Ethel’s garden,” says club moderator, Mr. Dan Martin. “With the added capacity, we are hoping to eventually launch a composting program for the vegetable waste produced in our cafeteria,” adds Martin.
In additional to all of these things, NDA’s Environmental Club is partnering with the Rotary Club of Covington to help maintain and beautify the Rotary Garden at Devou Park.
Congratulations to Mr. Martin and the Environmental Club at NDA for all of their environmental efforts to make a difference in the world!
