Go Green Initiative's School of the Week in Sheboygan, WI!

If you've ever looked at a map of the U.S. and wondered what goes on in Sheboygan, you're probably like the rest of us. But it turns out that they've got a school doing great green things. Because the Go Green Initiative's top honors this week go to the Holy Family School in Sheboygan, WI. They've teamed up with the local Police Benevolent Society to start a paper recycling program, and getting some terrific results.

Their science teacher, Chris Romps, points out his students have been involved making posters to promote recycling, weighing and taking out the recycling to their brand new dumpsters, and tracking their waste data from month to month.

Together, the students and faculty of Holy Family have recycled almost a ton of paper since school began, as well as plastic, glass, and aluminum. And they've also been conserving paper by using both sides of the paper and printing double-sided copies.

It's amazing what one school can do!
