Darnall Charter School- Water Bottles/Tree Planting
Our staff at Coastal Tree Care has proudly partnered with Darnall Charter School’s Sustainability Club on various projects in efforts to show our support for their mission of conservation and environmental stewardship. It has been a great honor to have the opportunity to donate reusable water bottles to every student on campus, assist in Darnall’s 25th anniversary tree planting, and maintain the health and well-being of the campus trees for all students, staff and faculty to enjoy.
Our first partnership with the Sustainability Club was to support the students in achieving their goal of providing every student on campus with an “Earth Savers” water bottle. The club’s objective was to reduce the number of single-use plastic water bottles that they collectively noticed as a prominent issue on campus. The club members entered a logo contest in which the student who most creatively captured the aspiration of the project was chosen to be used on the water bottles. We had the logo printed on 700 stainless steel water bottles and donated them to the club to be distributed to each student on campus. The “Earth Savers” water bottles can now be found throughout campus and have drastically reduced the usage of plastic.
We have also had the opportunity to deliver and assist in the installation of an Australian Willow tree as a token of achievement to celebrate Darnall’s 25th anniversary as a charter school. Each student from the sustainability club provided their assistance in the planting and it was a significant event on campus as we were able to celebrate a notable accomplishment and make a memorable addition to the campus’ trees that will thrive for years to come.
In a further attempt to support the club’s goal of conservation, we have tended to and continue to maintain the trees throughout the campus to support their growth, longevity, and health. We hope to not only beautify and provide aesthetic appeal on campus, but also reinforce the importance of trees for air quality, soil health, biodiversity, water conservation and wildlife support with the help of the voice of the club members. As a company that holds a strong code of environmental ethics and values conservation efforts, we are proud to support Darnall Charter’s Sustainability Club as they work to promote changes on campus that align with our beliefs. The club is a wonderful way to foster good stewards of the earth and teach students and peers the importance of maintaining a healthy planet. We look forward to future opportunities to provide our support for their mission.
