Staples’ Green Club has done a lot in the past year. They’re helping recycle everything from the usual paper and bottles to compact fluorescent bulbs. They got the school to phase out paper towels in bathrooms; they created an edible garden, installed “No Idling” signs in the parking lot, and organized a hugely successful Eco-Fest.
All that costs money. Now their good works can help them earn cash.
The Green Club entered CL&P’s “People’s Choice Award” contest. The winning high school — there are 12 entrants — earns $20,000. Runners-up get $5,000. If Staples wins, the money will fund several projects, including the 2nd annual Eco-Fest.

It’s the easiest thing you’ll do all day. And, hopefully, only 1 of the greenest.
