Green Cup Energy Challenge


           

JANUARY GREEN CORNER: A VERY GREEN START TO 2015!

Some of the Belmont Schools will participate in the Green Cup Energy Challenge, a national contest during the dates of January 14 - February 11, 2015. 

The Challenge is pretty simple--Belmont families could even try it at home:

  1. students read and record the electric meter once a week 
  2. all members of the school community will reduce unnecessary electricity consumption within the school

Some energy saving tips to try at home:

Let’s get ready and kick-off our Green Communities status by turning off, unplugging, and powering down our electronics. Reducing electricity saves money and reduces pollution. For more information contact your school’s Green Team representative or Mary Beth Calnan, Belmont Recycling Coordinator, mcalnan@belmont-ma.gov
