Green Apple Day of Service Nets 150 Handmade Signs
Some 35 volunteers, parents and students from Dr. Bessie Rhodes Magnet School in Skokie, School District 65, spent over two hours creating 150 signs promoting good stewardship and sustainability as part of the 1st Annual Green Apple Day of Service organized by the Center for Green Schools, an arm of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Taking a pause from nibbling on green apples and sign-making are (pictured, seated) Audrey Disbrow, 6, and school principal Carlos Mendez; and (standing, from left) Dan Kehoe, marketing manager at EverLights; and Becky Brodsky, project coordinator at the school. The signs will be placed throughout the school to remind everyone to conserve, recycle and reuse. EverLights, a Chicago-based recycler of fluorescent bulbs, was the sponsor of the Rhodes event.
