The goal of this club is to reduce BMS’s carbon footprint. The BMS Eco Squad will employ a variety of approaches to raise awareness and activate our school community.

The club will investigate the waste/recycle stream to make sure BMS students and staff are properly handling, sorting and redirecting waste to the proper channels.
