We need to eliminate single use plastics from our schools!
We need to ensure proper recycling receptacles are present!

“We must lead by example. I have noticed a lack of respect for our environment while attending schools in the VUSD. What I have seen is an overabundance of single use plastics on campuses, as well as a lackadaisical recycling program. Now I have not visited every school, but the ones that I have visited have courtyards or quads littered with single use plastics. Now not all of them are originating from the school themselves but many of them are. I have witnessed plastic service ware, straws, disposable containers and bottles. In addition, a disturbing realization there is a lack of recycling containers. Recycling containers can not be found where the students take their nutrition breaks. This is just one of many environmental reasons I am running for VUSD area 1. I want to see our campuses have a set of procedures that must be followed to improve sustainability.”
