Dear Families, With Parent’s Weekend coming up, we are so excited for you to join our Island School community! As you probably know, one of the cornerstones of the Island School mission is sustainability. When you visit, you will have the opportunity to see how much we have all learned about reducing and reusing our waste and how as a campus we strive to be as sustainable as possible. And you can join us in this mission. For our Human Ecology final project, we are focusing on the problem of single-use plastic usage here on Eleuthera.

So, please, help support us while you’re here by reducing your plastic waste! Two little things will make a big difference down here:

1. Bring down a reusable bag to use instead of plastic bags for shopping on the island. 2. Bring your own reusable water bottle for re-filling on campus and/or a to-go drinking mug for using when you purchase beverages at local restaurants.

Thanks so much and looking forward to seeing everyone!

Madeleine, Sarah H, Charlotte, and Julia
