Evergreen Recognized for Sustainability by the City of Shoreline
Four of our fifth-grade students, accompanied by Sustainability Coordinator Janet Charnley, took the opportunity to attend the Shoreline City Council meeting on Monday evening to receive an America Recycles Day proclamation recognizing Evergreen. Mayor of Shoreline Will Hall read the proclamation and presented it to the students in recognition of Evergreen's efforts towards sustainability.
In recent years, Evergreen has reached platinum, Washington Green Schools' highest level of certification, in areas including water usage, grounds and landscaping, recycling and more. Evergreen has also reached a recycling rate of 58 percent and reduced garbage volume by 50 percent.
