Several Bacich grades have won awards as part of the PaperSeed Foundation Recycled Art Countywide Competition, she said."

It’s happening, through The Kilgoris Project and our partner, The PaperSeed Foundation.

"Keep California Beautiful & the Paper Seed Foundation also awarded $18,000 in cash awards for its K-12 Recycling Challenge held during the month of March. More than 265 California schools participated in the statewide challenge, which focused on schools reducing refuse costs by increasing recycling on a daily basis. Because of the diversity in recycling programs and school infrastructure, the contest includes eight basic material categories: paper, cardboard, CRV beverage containers (bottles, cans, glass), metal cans, expanded polystyrene foam (lunch trays and food service-ware), milk and juice cartons, food service organics (compost) and comingled/single stream recycling. Students therefore learned an important lesson in environmental stewardship, while also promoting California’s goal of reducing 75 percent of its waste by 2020."

Through the generous efforts of the San Rafael Paperseed Foundation in California we have received 60 children's backpacks filled with school supplies. Paperseed hosted their annual drive last month and donated these bags which we are packing for shipment to the island of Leyte, Philippines where families are still recovering almost 10 months later from the devastation of Hurricane Haiyan.
Thank you Paperseed for making this happen!
